Top Doctors and Institutions in Sarcoidosis Research and Treatment

The Leading Experts and Medical Centers in Sarcoidosis Identified and Ranked Using Objective, Data-Driven Healthcare Tool
BALTIMORE - Dec. 18, 2018 - PRLog -- As part of its continuing program to highlight expertise and excellence in healthcare, Expertscape takes pleasure in recognizing the world's top institutions and medical specialists in the research and treatment of sarcoidosis.

According to the Foundation for Sarcoidosis Research, sarcoidosis (pronounced SAR-COY-DOE-SIS) is an inflammatory disease characterized by the formation of granulomas, clumps of inflammatory cells, in one or more organs of the body. Sarcoidosis affects people of all ages, but typically presents before the age of 50 years, with the incidence peaking at 20 to 39 years. This disorder affects the lungs in approximately 90% of cases, but it can affect almost any organ in the body. Despite increasing advances in research, sarcoidosis remains difficult to diagnose with limited treatment options and no known cure. Disease presentation and severity varies widely among patients. In some cases, the disease goes away on its own. In others, the disease may not progress clinically but individuals will still suffer from some symptoms that challenge their quality of life. The rest of patients—up to a third of people diagnosed with the disease—will require long-term treatment. In this population, sarcoidosis can be debilitating and life-threatening.

"We applaud the efforts of Expertscape to recognize the investigators who dedicate their careers to finding answers and providing hope for thousands of patients worldwide who suffer from this devastating disease. Members of the sarcoidosis community rightfully expect collaboration among stakeholders, as they recognize the need for power in numbers to advance research and provide support for this disease," said Ginger Spitzer, Executive Director of FSR. "We are proud to partner with Expertscape to elevate the voices of experts in this space and provide patients information on where they can receive accurate information about the disease and the best possible care."
