With the assistance of healthcare providers from the NC Jaycee Burn Center, Dr. C. Scott Hultman, Associate Director, staffs a weekly burn reconstruction clinic to help patients attain the objective of optimal long-term function via staged procedures and therapeutic interventions. Scar formation and management as well as the prevention of deformities and contractures are all addressed through a multidisciplinary team approach. Relationships are built and maintained with the patient and family to aid the complete physical and psychological recovery of each patient.
