This center is led by Dr. Kevin McKown and is a small scleroderma center in terms of size. They only treat adults with systemic forms of scleroderma. However Dr. McKown is very involved in research and education for scleroderma and related autoimmune diseases.
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.
