The Michigan Medicine Antiphospholipid Syndrome (APS) Program is home to both clinical and research activities associated with APS. That means that while team members are focused on providing the highest level of care for each patient, they are also dedicated to research to find new and better ways to treat and ultimately cure APS.
Our approach to treatment recognizes that APS is different in every person. Along with specialists in hematology, obstetrics, neurology, nephrology and more, our rheumatologists work with each patient to develop a personalized treatment approach to pursue the very best possible long-term outcome.
Patients with suspected or confirmed diagnoses of APS are seen in the Adult Rheumatology Clinic.
