Burn Center

Michael Cooper, MD

Director, Regional Burn Center

Staten Island University Hospital opened its state-of-the-art Burn Center in June 1998.  The 10-bed unit admits nearly 700 burn patients a year, and has earned a national reputation for the critical care, surgical care, and long term treatment of burns.

Imbued with the philosophy that a burn changes a life forever, Dr. Michael Cooper and his clinical team treat patients from the time of their trauma through the long and often challenging process of recovery with minimal disfigurement.  Patients and their families benefit from emotional as well as medical support in the recovery process that strives to ameliorate the long term trauma associated with burns.
