When is surgery needed for burns?

Surgery may be needed for burns when the burn is deep, or when the burn involves a large area of the body.

  • Surgery may also be needed to remove dead tissue, repair or cover the wound, or reduce the risk of infection.
  • Additionally, surgery may be needed to address any underlying injuries or to treat complications that may arise from the burn.
  • Ultimately, the decision to perform surgery will be made on a case-by-case basis by the patient's burn care team, taking into consideration the severity and location of the burn, as well as the overall health of the patient.
