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.
