Hope and healing for children with burn injuries.

Children aren’t just small adults. Their bodies are still growing and changing. Burn injuries — which can have lasting physical and emotional effects on children — are treated by experts who understand the way children develop.

Experience when it matters most.

At the Stuart J. Hulnick Burn Center, our doctors, nurses, and compassionate care team come together to bring your child years of experience in treating burns.

Our team, led by board-certified pediatric plastic surgeons, focuses on getting your child back to their life as quickly as possible. Our team is highly skilled in pediatric treatment techniques that minimize pain and scarring.

Comprehensive Pediatric Burn Care

We treat all types of burn injuries, including:

  • Chemical burns
  • Electrical burns
  • Heat and fire contact burns
  • Scald injuries
  • Smoke inhalation

When burn injuries require critical care, we partner with our hospital's pediatric intensive care doctors. These specialists are skilled in treating lung damage caused by inhalation injuries.
