Skin Graft Surgery at Florida Medical Clinic
Florida Medical Clinic offers skin graft surgery to patients who have sustained significant deep tissue damage following burn treatment, skin cancer treatment, or treatment for any other extensive dermalogical wound. This procedure is used to cover and repair wounds with a small section of grafted skin that is taken from another part of the body or produced from an artificial material. Restoring a protective covering over the surface of a wound can reduce the likelihood of infection or other complications.
Skin graft surgery is a complex process that can involve the careful removal of muscles, blood vessels, and skin, as well as the precise placement of the new replacement graft. Post-operative care can be quite involved as well, with several precautions necessary to ensure the success of the procedure.
Depending on the type of procedure being performed and the condition that led to the skin graft, a team of several Florida Medical Clinic specialists may all contribute to a patient’s care. This team may include:
- General surgeons
- Plastic and cosmetic surgeons
- Supportive care providers
We also offer several non-surgical treatments for wound care, such as hyperbaric oxygen therapy. With several decades of experience in surgical and non-surgical wound management, our team can expertly recommend the most appropriate therapies for each patient’s needs, developing and then carrying out our individualized treatment plans with a great deal of care and compassion.
