Washington University acute and critical care surgeons treat patients with unexplained emergencies and critical illnesses, such as gastrointestinal bleeding, bowel obstruction, multiple organ failure, pancreatitis, sepsis and adult respiratory distress. They are experts in the treatment of patients with acute injuries (such as those in auto crashes and industrial incidents), thermal injuries (burns from heat, cold, chemical or electrical incidents), and those requiring emergency surgery.
