Scleroderma Center

The Scleroderma Center aims to provide the type of high-quality medical care that patients expect from university hospitals by offering intensive treatment across a range of departments, with a multidisciplinary team of doctors that have vast experience in systemic sclerosis treatment.

Medical services

At the SSc Center’s outpatient clinic, patients can consult with systemic sclerosis specialists in Dermatology, Allergy and Rheumatology, and Cardiovascular Medicine. Patients visiting for the first time will be seen by Dr. ASANO Yoshihide every Tuesday mornings at Dermatology booth 417. From the second visit onwards, they can receive treatment as an outpatient at the department that best suits their symptoms. Allergy and Rheumatology and Cardiovascular Medicine also open a specialized outpatient clinic on Tuesdays, so patients who are treated by multiple departments can do so on the same day.

Treatment policy

Doctors from Dermatology, Allergy and Rheumatology, and Cardiovascular Medicine work together to carry out a full-body examination in order to select the best treatment for each patient. The SSc board is held regularly to discuss treatment strategies in detail, to discern the safest and most effective courses of treatment.

Specialized areas

Our group of specialists work together to offer the best treatment for refractory diseases that require a high level of expertise, such as immunotherapy for patients suffering from skin sclerosis and interstitial lung disease, as well as therapies for intractable cutaneous ulcers and manifestations of SSc such as articular symptoms, cardiopathy and pulmonary hypertension.
