Overview

The scleroderma expert at this hospital is Dr. Flavia V. Castelion, whose clinical interests include scleroderma, connective tissue associated interstitial lung disease, Raynaud's phenomenon, rheumatoid arthritis and dermatomyositis. The hospital diagnose and treat adults with all types of scleroderma.

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.
