All type of corrective surgeries for burn related deformities
There are two main categories of burn surgery: acute and reconstructive. Acute burn care occurs immediately after the injury. Reconstructive burn surgery may be required after the initial burn wounds have healed.
Burn injury is associated with anatomic, physiologic, endocrinologic, and immunologic alterations. These problems need to be identified and treated properly to prevent or minimize the extent of the damage. In recent years, advances in burn treatment have reduced morbidity and mortality and improved the quality of life for burn survivors. These advances have been made in the treatment of the acute injury, the quality of the initial resuscitation, the effectiveness of infection control, and the surgical decision making for improved short- and long-term outcomes.
