Our burn treatments and services

Our multispecialty burn treatment team offers comprehensive care to help you heal.

Burn treatment

Our burn treatment team is comprised of specialized surgeons, nurse practitioners, physician assistants and registered nurses. All of our team members are trained to assist patients from initial burn injury through recovery. This team works together to create a customized care plan just for you, which may include a variety of therapies.

In addition to conventional burn treatments, we offer supplemental burn care services such as:

Emergency burn care

If you need emergency care for a burn, our emergency room (ER) is open 24/7. Our emergency medicine team is dedicated to providing high-quality care, while making your visit with us as convenient as possible.

Hyperbaric medicine

We provide hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) to patients with nonhealing wounds and other conditions. HBOT involves breathing pure oxygen inside a pressurized chamber, and the increased oxygen in your blood promotes healing at the wound site. Our hospital offers two multi-place hyperbaric oxygen chambers, allowing us to care for multiple patients at a time.

Microvascular plastic and reconstructive surgery

We also offer microvascular, plastic and reconstructive surgery for patients who have experienced burns and other injuries. Some of the surgical services we provide include:

  • Breast plastic surgery
  • Facial reconstructive surgery
  • Laser scar therapy
  • Reattachment surgery
  • Scar revision surgery

Coming to our burn treatment center

Our burn clinic is located at our hospital and is open every Wednesday, and we welcome new patients and patients who are following up from inpatient care.
