You have access to the latest technologies and therapies at the West Penn Burn Center. Our leading-edge treatments include:
Our expertise in treating burns also applies to chronic, nonhealing wounds. We provide specialized care for hard-to-heal wounds caused by diabetes, trauma, surgery, and other medical issues.
We also treat skin and soft tissue disorders that mimic burn injuries, such as Stevens-Johnson syndrome (SJS) and toxic epidermal necrolysis (TEN). These potentially life-threatening diseases usually occur as a result of a drug reaction or infection. People with SJS or TEN may develop rashes, sores, and peeling skin. Blisters, similar to a burn injury, can form on the mucous membranes inside the mouth, eyes, and vagina.
