Sarcoidosis Program

Sarcoidosis is an inflammatory disease that can affect any organ in the body, but most commonly affects the lungs. People with sarcoidosis have abnormal masses called granulomas that can cause the organ to change or stop working right. While there is no cure, sarcoidosis is a chronic disease that can be managed to minimize organ dysfunction.

The Sarcoidosis Program at National Jewish Health in Denver is the largest in Colorado and the Rocky Mountain Region. Our team of specialists works with you to manage your sarcoidosis and improve you quality of life. Because our doctors are researchers, too, you have access to the latest sarcoidosis clinical trials and most effective treatments.
