A Patient Story

Savannah Tucker: Overcoming A Rare Cranial Deformity

Savannah Tucker was born with a rare cranial deformity, craniosynostosis, commonly known as clover leaf skull.

Born in West Virginia, she was airlifted to UVA Medical Center at a few days old.

She has undergone over 20 surgeries, and there were times when doctors believed she would never be able to walk.

A 6-bed extension of our Surgical Intensive Care Unit, the DeCamp Burn and Wound Healing Center treats children for severe burns. We also provide psychological care to help them cope with the physical and emotional affects of their injuries.

The Burn Support Laboratory stores harvested skin grafts and prepares antimicrobial cream to kill or prevent the growth of bacteria or fungi wounds.

Hyperbaric Oxygen Treatment Center

  • With HBOT, your child breathes highly pressurized oxygen that delivers a large amount of oxygen to the body’s tissues. This allows the blood to carry greater amounts of oxygen to the area of the body that needs healing.

    It can treat a variety of health problems, including:

    • Chronic wounds
    • Carbon monoxide or cyanide poisoning
    • Crush injuries
    • Skin flaps or grafts with poor blood supply
    • Radiation tissue damage

    It has a higher atmospheric pressure percentage, so side effects may include mild ear pressure or nearsightedness. Treatment is not painful, but your child's ears may feel full.
