The Department of Surgery’s Section of Burn Surgery has a tradition of providing expert burn care for patients of all ages. With a specialized burn surgeon, our team is experienced in every facet of critical care.

Our section of burn surgery cares for approximately 150 burn patients each year. At our Level One Trauma Center, we provide care from the time of injury through discharge and rehabilitation, with a varied team of specialists (including doctors, nurses, physical and occupational therapists, health psychologists, dieticians, pharmacists, social workers, respiratory therapists, phlebotomists, radiology specialists and psychiatrists) to coordinate care and ensure a patient’s full physical and psychological recovery.
