Commitment to Patient-Centered Care

“I have a strong interest in both the acute and long-term psychological outcomes affecting burn patients and their reintroduction into society. I have found caring for patients who rely on safety-net hospitals particularly rewarding and a special privilege.”

Clinical Expertise

Dr. Gayken’s interest in burn surgery began when he was a patient in Hennepin Healthcare’s burn unit over 20 yrs ago while recovering from skin grafting on nearly 40% of his body. He is particularly interested in long-term reconstructive and functional outcomes in burn patients as well as their acute care management.
