Amyloidosis care at Mayo Clinic

Your Mayo Clinic care team

Amyloidosis can affect many parts of your body. At Mayo Clinic, hematologists work closely with doctors who specialize in pathology, transplantation and cancer, as well as in diseases of the brain and nervous system, heart, and kidneys. Together, they make your health care experience seamless.

Advanced diagnosis and treatment

Amyloidosis is a rare disease that can be difficult to diagnose. Mayo Clinic specialists use the latest technology, such as mass spectrometry, to pinpoint the type of amyloidosis you have. That information is important in determining the most effective treatment for you.

Mayo Clinic transplant centers are leaders in the use of blood stem cell transplants to treat amyloidosis. Mayo Clinic specialists are also researching new ways to diagnose and treat amyloidosis.
