Reconstructive surgery for burn scars is technically difficult. However, there has been great strides made recently in the management of the burn wound. Mr Ghosh specialises in the management of burns, both acute and for reconstruction of burns scars and contractures.

Mr Ghosh offers an individualised treatment for burn reconstruction including:

● ‘Z’-Plasty

● Skin Grafts

● Tissue Expansion

● Free Tissue Transfer

● Resurfacing of burn scars with the use of Integra or an artificial dermal substra. He is also one of the country’s leading surgeons to offer the use of Matriderm, another artificial dermis

The overall management is decided after multiple discussions and consultations with the patient.

Mr Ghosh is a member of the British Burns Association and is a leading Burns Surgeon at Stoke Mandeville Hospital NHS Trust. He is widely published and regularly presents his work at national and international meetings.

Burns Reconstruction

  • Full Thickness Skin Graft

    During this procedure, Mr Ghosh will take healthy skin, consisting of the epidermis and the entire depth of the dermis, from another part of the body and graft it onto an area with a skin defect. These defects can range from ulcers, burns, scarring and surgical wounds.
