burn injury surgery


If you’ve had a severe burn, burn injury surgery can help reduce scars and improve mobility. After your burn heals, surgeons can use a number of techniques to improve your skin’s appearance and health.

At Aurora, your care team will work with you on a treatment plan tailored to your needs. Depending on the severity and size of the injury, your treatment options may include a skin graft. In this procedure, doctors remove healthy tissue from another part of your body and transplant it to the burned area. 

There are 2 types of skin grafts:
  • Split-thickness graft: Doctors transplant only a few layers of the outer skin. 
  • Full-thickness graft: Doctors transplant the entire bottom layer of skin.
