What We Do
The premise and promise of the burn center has been to never turn away a patient in need of specialized burn care. Joseph M. Still Burn Centers, Inc., is unique in many ways, including treating both children and adults to the comprehensive circle of care offered by our medical professionals.
At JMSBC, Inc., the treatment of patients goes beyond their physical burns and wounds. From the expertise of critical care and pediatric intensivists to the consultation of staff psychiatrists, JMSBC, Inc., truly treats the entire patient. We understand that even a small burn can be catastrophic to families, and we work hard to minimize the lasting impact of such injuries.
The acute care is often followed by reconstruction as burn scars can be restricting and interfere with a patient's lifestyle. This is often a long process requiring years of reconstructive procedures. Therefore, we have a great opportunity to know our patients and connect with them on a level unlike many other specialties.
Many burn centers focus on the acute injury and once the patient is healed refer them to other surgeons to perform their reconstruction. It has been our experience that having the intimate knowledge of what the patient went through in the initial stages helps us to optimize their reconstructive efforts.
