Traumatic Injuries

Children who suffer traumatic injuries are frequently sent home from hospital emergency departments with instructions to follow up with their pediatricians who often do not have the time or expertise in addressing the pain, anxiety and appropriate wound dressings for a successful wound closure. Simply wrapping a wound in gauze or applying an antibiotic ointment to the wound often leads to complications and delayed healing. Dr. Amaya and his staff are well versed in the management of traumatic wounds in children and will provide the experience needed to heal these wounds in a timely manner while addressing pain and discomfort.
