About this clinic

Scleroderma, also known as systemic sclerosis, is a group of rare diseases that involve the hardening and tightening of the skin. It may also cause problems in the blood vessels, internal organs (like the lungs) and digestive tract.

The Scleroderma Clinic provides consultations and follow-up visits for patients diagnosed with scleroderma. You can find us at the Pacific Lung Health Centre at St. Paul's Hospital.
