Wiser about Lungsarcoidosis Pulmonary medicine

Our pulmonary medicine department has a long history when it comes to both the care for patients with sarcoidosis, as scientific research concerning sarcoidosis. In this we work closely together with the other specialist involved in the care for these patients. We have contributed to our current understanding of new diagnostic techniques, most recently the 'endobronchial ultrasound' (EBUS). Involved longdoctors are prof. dr. Jouke Annema, Dr. René Jonkers and Dr. Peter Bonta. The care for these patients is multidisciplinary with a weekly meeting on Friday in the AMC(KIR meeting).

Lung sarcoidosis in the AMC

The lungs are most frequently involved in the disease, and therefore we have a lot of experience in treating patients with sarcoidosis. With the use of EBUS the diagnosis can be made fast and with certainty and we are currently investigating new diagnostic techniques to improve the diagnostic process. Below you can find information on how to refer patients to our center and the scientific research we are conducting.

Tertiary referral center sarcoidosis AMC

We are a tertiary referral center for patients with sarcoidosis. Care for patients with sarcoidosis is complex. Our opinion is that because the disease is relatively rare, care for these patients with severe manifestations of the disease should preferably be performed in a few specialized hospitals. We want to improve healthcare for these patients. Part of this is a specialist outpatient clinic for sarcoidosis patients with a multidisciplinary approach. Additionally, we have started various scientific research projects, aimed at improving the diagnostic process and treatment of this disease. Below you can find more information concerning the pulmonary medicine department, who we are, what kind of research we are conducting and how you can refer patients to us.
