If you have scleroderma, you need a health care team that’s skilled in diagnosing your disease and managing its effects. Our rheumatologists partner with specialists throughout Duke to develop a treatment plan that meets your individual needs and offers the best options for improving your quality of life.
A Team Approach
Scleroderma affects the skin and other tissues and organs throughout the body, including the lungs, nerves, and skin. Our physicians work closely with Duke psychiatrists, gastroenterologists, physical therapists, orthopaedic surgeons, dermatologists, and pulmonologists. Together, we develop the most appropriate care plan for you.
An Active Research Program
You may be eligible to participate in our ongoing clinical trials that test new therapies for scleroderma. Our ongoing studies help us better understand the cause of scleroderma and uncover the most effective techniques for managing the disease.
