Dr. Caffrey specializes in the treatment of burn wounds, including reconstructive burn surgery, surgical management of complex wound and burn deformities. A native of Bowie, Maryland, she is currently researching the use of laser therapy for post-burn scar contractures, improved aesthetic outcomes for burn patients, pruritus associated with burn injuries and reduction of narcotic addictions.
