Burn and Wound Care

Reconstructive surgery may be necessary to correct severe wounds. Procedures range from low-complexity direct wound closure treatments to more complicated operations such as microsurgery and peripheral nerve repair and severed limb reattachment.

Our plastic and reconstructive surgeons can improve function and appearance in wounds resulting from a number of causes, including:

  • Trauma
  • Burn injury
  • Disease
  • Tumors
  • Infection

One of our plastic and reconstructive surgeons can meet with you and discuss wound care options with you. At this consultation, you will be evaluated to determine the best course of action for treatment, and all aspects of the procedure will be discussed. You are also encouraged to ask questions and have your concerns addressed by your plastic and reconstructive surgery team. Please contact New York Plastic Surgical Group to schedule a consultation with one of our plastic surgeons.
