About our amyloidosis program
Amyloidosis is a group of conditions caused by the buildup of an abnormal protein called amyloid. Amyloid deposits can occur in many different places in your body. As a result, amyloidosis often affects multiple organs, including the heart, liver and kidneys, as well as other tissues and nerves.
The amyloidosis programs in Dallas, the Center for Advanced Heart and Lung Disease at Baylor University Medical Center, and Temple, the Heart and Vascular Institute specialize in caring for those with this complex condition. Dallas and Temple are two of a small number of programs in the nation dedicated to the treatment of amyloidosis.
If you’ve been diagnosed with amyloidosis, our programs offer you the help you need. We provide integrated care through access to multiple specialists who are committed to treating cases like yours.
