Sarcoidosis Program

We have doctors located throughout Manhattan.

At NYU Langone’s Sarcoidosis Program, we provide diagnosis and comprehensive care for people who have sarcoidosis. This rare and complex condition causes immune cells to clump together into masses called granulomas that can prevent an organ from functioning properly. There are many types of sarcoidosis, which are classified by the organs or tissues involved. Most often, sarcoidosis affects the lungs, lymph nodes, or skin, but it can occur anywhere in the body. Sarcoidosis may require treatment from several different specialists.

One Team, Coordinated Care

Our experts—pulmonologists, cardiologists, dermatologists, nephrologists, neurologists, ophthalmologists, and rheumatologists—work closely together to diagnose sarcoidosis and to create a comprehensive treatment plan for you. Our team coordinates your care across specialties to make your experience with us as seamless as possible.

Advanced Diagnostics

NYU Langone doctors have access to the most-advanced tools to diagnose sarcoidosis in any organ. These include advanced imaging using MRI and PET; flexible bronchoscopy; endobronchial, transbronchial, and endomyocardial biopsy; bronchoalveolar lavage; and endobronchial ultrasound–guided transbronchial needle aspiration. Such technologies enable doctors to accurately diagnose sarcoidosis and rule out other conditions with similar symptoms.

Experts in Sarcoidosis Care

Our comprehensive approach allows us to quickly identify and address symptoms and other complications related to sarcoidosis. For example, people with sarcoidosis have an increased risk of developing kidney stones. Our nephrologists specialize in preventing and treating the sarcoidosis-related calcium imbalances that cause these stones to form.

Our neurologists are experienced in managing complications of the nervous system associated with sarcoidosis, including optic neuritis, myelitis, and cranial neuropathies.

Our dermatologists provide expert care for skin sarcoidosis. We work closely with the entire team of doctors to diagnose sarcoidosis when it affects the skin and other organs, and treat skin-related symptoms.

Our cardiologists and pulmonologists provide critical care for people who have advanced cardiac or pulmonary sarcoidosis. We also provide advanced therapies for pulmonary hypertension due to sarcoidosis. For those who are considering a heart or lung transplant or a left ventricular assist device (LVAD), we offer a smooth transition of care to NYU Langone Transplant Institute or the LVAD Program.

Our multidisciplinary specialists meet regularly to discuss each patient’s diagnosis and work together to design a treatment plan that helps achieve the best outcome. When you are seen by an NYU Langone sarcoidosis specialist, you have access to an entire team of experts. They ensure that you receive the best and most-advanced care, including access to novel treatments through our ongoing research and clinical trials.

Access to Clinical Trials

Doctors at NYU Langone participate in an international registry and conduct clinical trials to discover and evaluate new treatments for sarcoidosis. You and your doctor may discuss whether participating in a clinical trial is appropriate for you.
