Located in downtown Chicago, the Northwestern Scleroderma Program is one of only a handful of centers nationally that specializes in this disease. The program serves patients from all over the world with the mission to provide state-of-the-art patient care, conduct research toward a cure, and increase awareness about scleroderma. See the Division of Rheumatology website to locate the clinic and learn more about scleroderma.
Multidisciplinary Team Approach
Due to the multi-organ nature of scleroderma, optimal care of patients requires individualized treatment and the coordinated efforts of experienced specialists. At Northwestern, physicians from Rheumatology, Pulmonary and Critical Care, Pumonary Hypertension Program, Lung Transplant Program, Cardiology, Dermatology, Gastroenterology, Immunotherapy, Nephrology, Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, and Rehabilitative Medicine work together to ensure that patients receive comprehensive evaluation and management of their scleroderma.
