WASOG badgeWASOG Designation

In June 2023, The Inova Sarcoidosis Center was designated as a World Association of Sarcoidosis and other Granulomatous Disorders (WASOG), Center of Excellence. This national designation identifies Inova Fairfax Hospital as one of the nation's premier providers of care for sarcoidosis patients.

The Inova Sarcoidosis Center joins an elite group of 22 other centers in the US and a total of 40 centers worldwide. The Inova Sarcoid Center is a multidisciplinary team of specialized medical and paramedical professionals that have proven sustainability over years, and provides leadership, best practices, research, support and/or training for sarcoidosis patients and professionals.

Multidisciplinary Team Approach

Sarcoidosis is a multi-system disorder, making a multidisciplinary approach to its management very important. Inova's fully-integrated sarcoidosis program builds on the national reputation of Inova's advanced lung disease and transplant programs.

Dr. Shambhu Aryal leads our program as the medical director. Besides pulmonology, our multidisciplinary team includes representation from cardiology, dermatology, neurology and ophthalmology to ensure comprehensive care to patients with coexisting or isolated non-pulmonary manifestations of sarcoidosis.
