Caring for More Burn Patients
Severe burn injuries pose life-threatening danger. They require immediate emergency medical care to prevent infection, blood loss, hypothermia and other major complications. Few doctors and hospitals have the expertise and experience to manage the most serious burns.
Temple Health has been the region’s leader in burn care for more than 20 years. We are a certified level 1 trauma center, meeting the standards set by the American Burn Association and the American College of Surgeons. We restore patients to the best possible health — functionally, cosmetically and psychologically.
And experience counts. Temple cares for more patients with burns than any other center in the region. Our clinicians are also active researchers in burn care, meaning that our patients have access to the latest technology and treatments.
Comprehensive Expertise for Complex Care
Temple’s burn care is led by Dr. Lisa Rae — a physician nationally respected in burn surgery and trauma and critical care. She and her team provide a spectrum of care — addressing not only the patient’s complex clinical needs but also their emotional and psychological well-being.
At Temple, we involve families in the recovery process. Our multidisciplinary approach includes pain management as well as physical, occupational and respiratory therapy; nutrition; and psychological counseling. It’s not only about clinical expertise treating a burn. It’s also about treating a person.
Temple’s Burn Center and staff are nationally recognized by their peers as experts, and educate other providers on best practices for burn treatment. We’re passionately committed to helping burn victims become burn survivors.
At Temple Health, we work every day to find solutions to complex conditions — creating better options for patients.
