The scleroderma expert at this facility used to be Dr. Martin A. Trojanowski, who has since moved to Boston University School of Medicine.
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.
