|Burn and Wound Care|
The St. Elizabeth Regional Burn and Wound Center is internationally recognized for outstanding research and for providing the latest treatments and procedures for serious burns or for wounds that will not heal.
The St. Elizabeth Burn Center, the region’s first dedicated burn unit, continues to save lives throughout the multi-state region. We are verified by the American College of Surgeons (ACS) and the American Burn Association (ABA).
This special designation offers burn patients and the community:
Our medical team helps each burn patient, adult or child make a physical, emotional and psychological recovery. From initial assessment through the ongoing healing process, a highly-skilled and caring multidisciplinary team uses the most current and effective therapies. The center includes an outpatient burn clinic for less serious burns or follow-up care for severe burns.
Advanced Burn Laser Therapy
This year, we are excited to be able to offer our patients an Advanced Burn Laser treatment. For burn survivors, this new laser treatment penetrates the layers of skin to a depth of 4mm – much deeper than a cosmetic laser. When the skin is burned, the surrounding skin begins to pull together, resulting in a contracture or tightening of the skin. Previously, the only option was multiple surgeries combining reconstructive and aesthetic work. The burn laser treatment helps relaxes the scar, improves range of motion, increases flexibility and lessens disfigurement—well beyond ordinary cosmetic benefits.
When it comes to wound care, we have an impressive record of healing sores that others thought incurable, including many that would have resulted in amputation. A team of doctors, specially-trained nurses, foot care specialists and lab technologists are experienced in all areas of wound management. Even patients with long standing wounds may heal in a few months.
