The director of the University Of Michigan Scleroderma Program is Dr Dinesh Khanna, who is the author of over 100 peer-reviewed publications. Their international focus lends this center a promising future.
They treat adults with any type of scleroderma (not juveniles).
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.
