Sarcoidosis is a systemic inflammatory disease that affects multiple organs in the body. The objective of this program is to provide comprehensive care to patients with multi-organ sarcoidosis or difficult to treat sarcoidosis. We have established a team of physicians at the University of Rochester dedicated to caring for patients with multisystem sarcoidosis.
