Leading-Edge Burn Care Facilities
Matthew Carrick, MD, Trauma Medical Director at Medical City Plano, explains what a burn center is and why it’s absolutely necessary for critically ill burn patients to have access to them.
Medical City Plano’s Burn & Reconstructive Center includes a specially equipped ED burn room, two dedicated operating rooms, an eight bed intensive care unit, a step down unit for inpatient care and a four-room Outpatient Burn Clinic.
The ED burn room, operating rooms and ICU have special climate controls to regulate temperature and humidity for burn patients who often have difficulty maintaining body temperature.
We provide all follow-up care to burn patients at our Outpatient Burn Clinic, which is conveniently located on the Medical City Plano campus. The clinic is equipped for short- and long-term rehabilitation, providing the best possible outcomes for patients.
