Within Cleveland Clinic's Respiratory Institute, the Sarcoidosis Center serves as a single point of access for patients to receive the best care for their condition. With innovative methods of care, research and technology, we are committed to providing the most comprehensive care to patients with single and multi-organ disease involvement.

A Team Approach

Sarcoidosis often affects more than one organ, so patients may need to see more than one type of physician. At the Sarcoidosis Center, we make sure patients quickly see the best doctors for their case by using a multidisciplinary approach. Our team of doctors, who have expertise and an interest in sarcoidosis, includes specialists in pulmonology, cardiology, electrophysiology, neurology, ophthalmology, dermatology and rheumatology.

At Cleveland Clinic's Sarcoidosis Center, we:

  • offer individualized patient care with access to a spectrum of specialists
  • provide cutting-edge testing including advanced diagnostic bronchoscopies for complicated sarcoidosis cases, such as cardiac sarcoidosis, as well as small-fiber neuropathy and neurosarcoidosis through our Neurosarcoidosis Clinic
  • minimize the degree to which sarcoidosis can affect quality of life for patients
  • conduct research to understand the disease process of sarcoidosis and to find alternative treatments for care


Research & Clinical Trials

Research & Clinical Trials

Clinical trials (or research studies) help us create the medicine of tomorrow. They provide hope through offering testing of new drugs, new surgical techniques or other treatments before they are widely available.

We can help you access hundreds of clinical trials across all specialty areas. Our new searchable online trials tool makes identifying treatment opportunities easier than ever.
