This clinic is led by Dr. Aryeh Fischer, whose specific area of clinical and research expertise is within systemic sclerosis and autoimmune associated lung diseases, and autoimmune interstitial lung disease in particular. The clinic diagnoses and treats adults with systemic scleroderma and Dr. Fischer is very involved in clinical trials for scleroderma lung disease.

Scleroderma often takes many years to diagnose because of insidious onset, vague initial symptoms, and low physician and public awareness. It is typically diagnosed and treated by rheumatologists, but because it is a rare and very complex disease, there are only a few dozen scleroderma specialists in the United States. Expert care can be crucial for proper screening, diagnosis, patient education, clinical trials, and treatment.
