This scleroderma center is led by Dr. Vivien Hsu, who has over 25 years of experience in this field. Her interests are scleroderma and related connective tissue diseases, myositis eosinophilic fasciitis, morphea, rheumatoid arthritis, psoriatic arthritis. This is a good center for adults who have any type of scleroderma, either localized (such as linear or morphea) or systemic.
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.
