The Alopecia Center of Excellence at Mount Sinai
Alopecia Areata is an autoimmune disease that causes hair loss on the scalp, face, or other areas of the body. Scarring alopecia consists of a group of diseases that involve a high degree of inflammation and involves scarring, particularly in more advanced stages, necessitating early treatment.
The Alopecia Center of Excellence at Mount Sinai is the first of its kind—the only centralized center in the United States that brings together compassionate patient care, offering the most advanced treatments, clinical trials with novel drugs, and groundbreaking research, all under one roof. Located on the Upper East Side, the Center is led by Emma Guttman, MD, PhD, a world-renowned expert on inflammatory skin diseases, whose pioneering research on eczema is also bringing new hope for the treatment of alopecia areata and scarring alopecia, as well as other forms of alopecia.
Our care goes beyond the medical, supporting patients—especially children—with the emotional aspects of hair loss as well. For patients and their families, we are not only restoring hair loss, but also self-esteem, confidence, and well-being.
