National Expertise in the Management of Sarcoidosis
For more than 20 years, pulmonary sarcoidosis has been a vital part of Inova's advanced lung disease services. Our experts are nationally recognized for their expertise in diagnosing, treating and managing sarcoidosis utilizing the most effective treatments available. We offer the region's only accredited pulmonary hypertension program and lung transplant center, both of which are crucial to a successful pulmonary sarcoidosis program.
In November 2018, Inova's Pulmonary Sarcoidosis Program was designated as a World Association of Sarcoidosis and other Granulomatous Disorders (WASOG) clinic. This national designation identifies Inova Fairfax Hospital as one of the nation's premier providers of care for sarcoidosis patients.
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.
