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. We are also the region’s only certified WASOG (World Association of Sarcoidosis and Other Granulomatous Disorders) Sarcoidosis Clinic.
