Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Gallagher "As a burn surgeon, I am privileged to care for the burn injured patient from the smallest child to the most senior members of our society. Burn injury is sometimes a small blister that requires only my reassurance that healing will take place naturally to complete devastation of the body, and at times a home and family. One of my greastest honors comes in my participation in the care of our injuried Fire Fighters. Being a New Yorker and having lost a family member who was a member of the FDNY, the ability to serve those who serve us is indeed a privilege.

Effective burn care is a result of paying close attention to detail as well as employing the state-of-the-art technology we have available here at NewYork-Presbyterian-Weill Cornell. Another important factor is to treat the whole person, not just the burn, being sensitive and aware of the many challenges burn patients and their families face as they recover and assisting them through our multi-disciplinary approach to burn care. Our goal is to facilitate complete reintegration into society for all the burn patients we treat, allowing them to lead happy and productive and painfree lives."

The staff and Dr. Gallagher are excellent in what they do. My two year old daughter suffered a second degree burn. The kind of care and concern they showed during our first visit exceeded my expectations. Thank you so much.
