Lauren Nosanov, MD


Lauren Nosanov, MD, is a surgeon at UW Health. Dr. Nosanov provides surgical treatment and care for trauma, burns and complex wounds. She also provides surgical critical care.

Dr. Nosanov cares for patients of all ages and specializes in treating burns from accidents such as scalding or cooking mishaps. She also provides surgical management for other serious skin conditions, including frostbite, necrotizing soft tissue infections and Stevens-Johnson syndrome.

Dr. Nosanov finds it rewarding to provide care for people when they’re at their most vulnerable. She enjoys helping them heal through their injury or illness and find a new reality. When needed, Dr. Nosanov guides patients and families through palliative care and end-of-life decisions.

In addition to her clinical work, Dr. Nosanov is an assistant professor in the Department of Surgery, Division of Acute Care and Regional General Surgery at the University of Wisconsin School of Medicine and Public Health. Her research interests focus on clinical and psychosocial outcomes following burn injury, medical ethics and education, wellness and end-of-life considerations.

Outside of work, Dr. Nosanov enjoys spending time with her family, practicing Tae Kwon Do, attending the theater and supporting the arts.

It's fun to see people come back to clinic and they’re not just physically healed but they’re back to their lives and feeling well with less pain. Doing surgery is rewarding, but it's the fact that we follow people long-term and get to see them return to their lives that's really satisfying.
