Arizona Burn Center

Treatment & Services

MIHS specializing in burn care provide critical, surgical and rehabilitative care to patients with varying degrees of new and healed burns. Our center is staffed and equipped to provide reconstructive and restorative surgery for healed burns, as well as treatments for various other skin conditions.

The range of treatments needed by patients with burn injuries can include:

  • skin grafting procedures
  • continuous enteral feeding
  • infection control and procedures to lessen the effects of scarring

 In addition, aggressive rehabilitation is typically necessary, including therapy to improve range of motion, and the use of specially fitted garments, splints and other orthotic appliances to improve the patient’s ability and appearance. Once a patient has recovered sufficiently to return to their homes and communities, MIHS helps to ensure a smooth transition through its readjustment and re-entry programs.

The medical staff at MIHS is renowned for their expertise in critical care, particularly in techniques that may help save the life of a patient with severe burn injuries – such as fluid resuscitation, management of smoke inhalation, early excision and skin grafting, and management of increased metabolism.

Since MIHS entered the burn care field, the survival rate for patients with burns over more than 50 percent of their body surface has doubled. In addition, today, patients with burns over 90 percent can survive, and go on to lead full, productive lives.
