Specialty Clinics

Amyloidosis Center

Boston Medical Center is an international referral center for the diagnosis and treatment of amyloidosis, a rare group of diseases caused by the abnormal accumulation of the protein amyloid in various parts of the body. This can occur as part of a bone marrow plasma cell disorder (AL), as a hereditary form (AF), an age-related form (senile systemic amyloidosis due to ATTR), or secondary to chronic inflammatory or infectious diseases (AA).

Bronchiectasis Program

Bronchiectasis is a chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) characterized by permanent damage to the lung’s major airways. Boston Medical Center offers the only coordinated, multidisciplinary program in Massachusetts to help reduce recurrent infections and treat symptoms of the condition with a focus on improving quality of life.

Pulmonary Rehabilitation

Pulmonary rehabilitation is a multidisciplinary program designed for patients with chronic lung diseases including, but not limited to, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), asthma, idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis, pulmonary hypertension, sarcoidosis, and obstructive sleep apnea.
