Overview

This scleroderma center is on the East Coast, in upstate New York, near Albany, New York. See it on Google Maps.

This regional referral center is led by Dr. Joel Kreme and they diagnose and care for individuals with arthritis, osteoporosis, autoimmune and musculoskeletal disease. They diagnose and treat all types of scleroderma, including localized (morphea, linear, en coup) and (limited or diffuse) systemic sclerosis.

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.
