Vasculitis Center

View of Physicians Pavilion

The Oregon Heath & Science University (OHSU) Vasculitis Center is a patient centered comprehensive clinic dedicated to taking care of patients with vasculitis in the state of Oregon and beyond. We are the only center in the Pacific Northwest dedicated specifically to treating patients with vasculitis. Our mission is to provide the highest level of clinical care to our patients. Vasculitis can affect almost any organ system in the body. Because of this, we believe that a multi-specialist approach is the best way to care for our patients. Our growing team includes specialists with unique expertise from rheumatology, dermatology, ophthalmology, nephrology, otolaryngology (ENT), and pulmonology. As a natural addition to care received at OHSU, clinical research plays an important role for patients and doctors at the OHSU Vasculitis Center. We offer our patients opportunities to participate in OHSU, national, and international research studies to advance the care and treatment of patients with vasculitis. Although this option is available, participation in a research study is never a requirement to receive care through the clinic and by its doctors.
