Burn injuries to the hand are responsible for tremendous disability and loss of time from work resulting in tremendous economic burden to the patient. The acute management of these injuries is critical in maximizing the aesthetic and functional outcome. Key principles include proper wound management, minimum scar formation, static and dynamic splints to maintain the fingers and wrist in a functional position, application of a CPM machine and rigorous occupational therapy. Surgery is often required for soft tissue coverage of the burned hand in patients with deep second degree and third degree burns. Norman Weinzweig has tremendous experience in the management of acute and chronic burns of the hand. Having worked at several major Burn Centers, including Detroit Receiving Hospital, Norman Weinzweig has treated hundreds of badly burned hands with excellent functional results.
