Outpatient Burn and Wound Care

We provide comprehensive outpatient care for complex injuries and burns and for wounds that are difficult or slow to heal. This includes those resulting from surgery, trauma, diabetes or vascular disease. We also provide expert outpatient care for ostomy patients.

Our dedicated burn and wound physicians, nurses and staff provide advanced, comprehensive care for adult and pediatric patients with burn injuries who:

  • Don’t require hospitalization
  • Were recently discharged from the hospital
  • Need follow-up care during recovery

Outpatient services include:

  • Advanced care for surgical and nonsurgical patients
  • Rehab therapy to improve movement and performance of daily activities
  • Compression therapy to reduce scarring
  • Pain management
  • Patient and family education and support
  • Monthly burn survivor support group and wellness programs

Ostomy care

Patients with intestinal or urinary diversion, such as colostomy or urostomy, receive long-term comprehensive care from a certified ostomy nurse.

Our outpatient ostomy care team provides care that includes:

  • Preoperative education and site marking
  • Postoperative follow-up care and long-term maintenance
  • Recommendations for alternative supplies

We provide guidance and support for ostomy patients throughout their lives. Patients receive expert, compassionate help with any medical, social or emotional issues related to their conditions.

Hyperbaric oxygen therapy

During hyperbaric oxygen therapy patients receive pure oxygen in a pressurized, single-person chamber. This stimulates healing for many medical and surgical conditions and chronic, difficult and slow-healing wounds.

Convenient location

The outpatient burn and wound care program is conveniently located in Kansas City on The University of Kansas Hospital’s ground floor.
