Therapy Achievements can be a vital part of your burn and wound care team. We provide therapy to control scar tissue, maintain tissue flexibility, and control swelling and infection so your burn or wound can heal. We help coordinate and communicate with all members of your Care Team.

Your Care Team can include the Wound and Burn Clinics and doctors and nurses from internal medicine, infectious disease, vascular medicine, nephrology, plastic surgery, or other specialists.
