Amyloidosis expertise

Mayo Clinic doctors have expertise and experience treating people with amyloidosis, a rare condition in which proteins build up in different organs in your body. Amyloidosis can affect the function of several organs in your body. A team of specialists will work together to develop your treatment plan, depending on the form of amyloidosis and the affected organs.

If amyloidosis has seriously affected your heart, you may be eligible for a heart transplant or a heart-liver transplant. Your doctor and treatment team will evaluate your condition and determine if a heart transplant or other treatment is an appropriate treatment for your condition.

Some people with amyloidosis may benefit from a kidney transplant, liver transplant, bone marrow transplant or other treatment options.
