It is vital that patients receive the highest quality care to reduce their risk of infection and provide the best possible chance of minimising any long-lasting damage. With an increased understanding of the extent severity and prolonged requirements of burn injury it became clear that specialized burn units would be needed to adequately address the needs of these patients.

Speaking during the inauguration, Dr. S. Skanda, Head- Dept of Plastic Surgery, Kauvery Hospital said, “Optimal treatment of burn victims requires deep understanding of the pathophysiological changes occurring locally and systemically after injury. Accurate estimation of burn size and depth, as well as early resuscitation is essential. Good burn care includes also cleansing, debridement and prevention of sepsis. Wound healing is of major importance to the survival and clinical outcome of burn patients. An ideal therapy would not only promote rapid healing but would also act as an anti-scarring therapy.”
Burns of high degree involves a high risk mortality and morbidity in the survivors by means of contractures, unsightly scars and keloids. Management of high-degree burns is one of the most challenging sub specialities of plastic surgery and it involves intensive care, regular dressings, management of pain and multiple sittings of reconstructive surgeries, including skin grafts or flaps as needed.

With an aim to provide accessible and affordable treatment for burns care at par with global standards, Kauvery Hospital currently has two exclusive units for burns intensive care in Trichy, at its facilities in Tennur and Cantonment (Paediatric burns care).
