Overview

This Scleroderma Center specializes in the treatment of patients with scleroderma and related fibrotic diseases. Dr. Fabian A. Mendoza-Ballesteros is Associate Director of the Scleroderma Center and they treat adults who have any form of scleroderma or other rare skin or fibrotic diseases, such as eosinophilic fasciitis and nephrogenic systemic fibrosis.

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.
