Burn Care

Our DeCamp Burn and Wound Healing Center treats children for severe burns, providing psychological care to help them cope.

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

Skin disease, cancer, lacerations, wounds — many chronic and complex traumas need repeated skin and bone grafts that adapt to your growing child. Our pediatric plastic surgeons provide care that accounts for your child's physical changes and shifting needs.
