Amyloidosis is a group of distinctly different diseases that result from deposition of amyloid in various organs and tissues in the body. The amyloid is derived from various abnormal or normal proteins produced in the body. Amyloidosis may affect many organs and result in many different symptoms. Therefore, the Penn Amyloidosis Program brings together experts from a variety of specialties to evaluate and manage the diverse manifestations of systematic amyloidosis.
Our multidisciplinary specialists design individualized treatment plans for each of our patients, drawing from the resources of all relevant specialties at Penn Medicine.
We strive to perform initial consultations with the relevant specialists on the same day in Philadelphia when possible.
When appropriate, ongoing consultations and care can be arranged at Penn Medicine at Cherry Hill and Valley Forge. An oncology navigator is available to you to help coordinate your care.
