Abstract

Burns constitute a significant portion of the worldwide disability adjusted life years by compromising form and function. Through the field's numerous reconstructive techniques, plastic surgery can treat many of these deficiencies stemming from burn injuries. We describe the steps necessary to establish international burn missions including realizing synergies among nonprofits and academic plastic surgery centers to restore form and function to burn patients.
