Burn Surgery

Burn Injury Care

Dr. Sadik is experienced in assessing, topically treating, and skin grafting all epidermal and dermal acute injuries including burns, frostbite, and related skin conditions (ie .Toxic epidermal necrolysis: TEN). Ours is a multi-disciplinary approach to burn care and rehabilitation in conjunction with wound care services, burn nurses, occupational therapy, physical therapy, nutritionists and trauma.

In addition, our physicians have experience in delayed burn care including: contracture release, scar improvement and staged reconstruction of specialized areas i.e., nose, mouth, ears, hands, etc. in those that were burned in the past.
