Torrance Memorial Medical Center’s Burn, Wound and Amputation Prevention Center offers highly specialized care for burn victims and for people with persistent, non-healing wounds. These are frightening experiences. Our unique Center is staffed with compassionate, collaborative medical professionals who are focused on healing the whole person – mind, body and spirit.

Our specially trained, dedicated staff uses advanced techniques and state-of-the-art technology to maintain your comfort while promoting healing and as complete a recovery as is possible. When the threat of amputation looms as a possibility (as sometimes is the case with wounds that won’t heal) our supportive, capable caregivers work aggressively as a team to preserve limbs whenever possible.
