What is Amyloidosis?

Amyloidosis is a disease characterized by an abnormal build up of proteins (called amyloids) in various organs in the body. These amyloid proteins develop in places such as the heart, kidneys, nerves, and gut. Because the underlying cause of amyloidosis varies depending on which amyloid protein is being deposited, the treatment options vary as well.

About the Stanford Amyloid Center

The Stanford Amyloid Center's central mission is to provide state-of-the-art treatment for patients with amyloidosis. Our center provides an integrated, multidisciplinary approach to the care of our patients, with comprehensive evaluations by physicians of every required subspecialty.


Each member of our team is highly experienced in the diagnosis and treatment of amyloidosis and is committed to a coordinated-care approach for all patients.


In 2006, Kevin Anderson, MD, began to notice some subtle physical changes in his health. He would often ride his bike 12 miles to work, but started to have difficulty with the endurance ride up hills. Even more significant was his almost two-year battle to climb the stairs from the hospital lobby to the operating room where he practiced. After about a year and a half without a diagnosis, in 2008 Dr. Anderson heard the word amyloidosis for the first time.
