Burn Care Info
Why is specialized care necessary for burn injuries?
Advances in burn therapy have allowed us to heal burn injuries easier and with significantly less pain. Second degree burns can be treated with a single application of bilaminate skin substitute, porcine skin or cadaver skin. Most second degree burns heal within 10 days after application of one of these skin substitutes. The substitutes do not require dressing changes, eliminating most of the pain. Third degree burns also heal quickly with a split thickness skin graft.
