Alicia Hinze, M.D., M.H.S., is a rheumatologist with a specialty interest in scleroderma and myositis. Her clinical focus includes the diagnosis and management of:

  • Systemic sclerosis (scleroderma), both diffuse and limited subtypes, and its multisystem complications.
  • Inflammatory myopathies (dermatomyositis, anti-synthetase syndrome, myositis overlapping with other autoimmune diseases, HMGCR necrotizing myopathy)
  • Interstitial lung disease associated with systemic autoimmune conditions
  • Raynaud's phenomenon
  • Systemic lupus erythematosus

 

She has a clinical passion to educate patients about their disease and available options for management, and to work with them to develop a personalized treatment plan.

In addition to her clinical activities, she is active in clinical research. She is developing the Mayo Clinic Scleroderma Registry to collect clinical information from patients who chose to participate, to help physicians and researchers better understand the disease process, best monitoring strategies and optimal treatment approaches. Her research focus is on developing methods to improve monitoring of disease activity and response to therapy in order to provide the best care possible to her patients.
