When you or a loved one are dealing with a burn, we're here to give you the best care possible. You can trust us to offer gentle, compassionate care and help you get back to your regular activities as soon as possible.


When you come to us for burn care, we’ll be here to guide and support you through every step of your healing process. No matter how you were burned, we have everything you need to make a smooth and complete recovery. Even people with the most severe burns can fully recover and continue leading healthy, productive lives.

Our center provides not only burn treatment, but also reconstructive and restorative surgeries for healed burns. The major treatments we perform at the Valleywise Health Arizona Burn Center are below.

Treatments

Skin Grafts

Skin grafts play an important role in burn treatment.

An autograft is a surgical procedure where the doctor uses sections of your own healthy skin to replace the scar tissue caused by deep burns.

If your burn area is not ready for an autograft, the physician will create a thin, temporary cover of skin over the wound to protect it from infection and to help control pain until you are ready for an autograft. The procedure is known as an allograft.

Wound Care

The goal of wound care is to prevent infection and promote healing with as little discomfort as possible. The staff will cleanse the wound (using hydrotherapy) to remove (debride) damaged or dead skin (eschar) and then apply a dressing.

Therapy

Burn rehabilitation can take many months. Our physical and occupational therapists will work with you and your family to help you return as close as possible to your pre-injury function levels. Therapists work in various settings, including the hospital, emergency department, clinic and ongoing outpatient follow-up after discharge.

We will also direct you to a variety of support resources, including burn survivor groups, to help you on your road to recovery.

Tube Feeding

Burn patients have special nutritional needs. Our patients receive high-calorie, high-protein meals that contain many vitamins and minerals. If a patient is unable to eat enough to meet their body’s need, they may receive nutrition through a feeding tube.

Outpatient Services

Our outpatient clinic provides comprehensive care for patients we have recently discharged or who have mild burns that don’t require hospitalization. The therapy team will also address range of motion and scar management on an outpatient basis.

Burn Surgery

We offer complete restorative surgery for our burn patients so they can regain their range of motion, strength and appearance.
