Lakewood Ranch, Florida – May 24, 2021 – The Wound Care Center® at Lakewood Ranch Medical Center (LWRMC), a member of the Healogics network, is helping raise awareness of the risks of chronic wounds during the 8th annual Wound Care Awareness Week, June 7 to June 11. Healogics established Wound Care Awareness in 2014 to bring attention to the growing need for wound care and the nearly 7 million Americans currently living with non-healing wounds. Program Directors across the nation will dedicate the entire week to educating physicians, patients and the general public about the chronic wound epidemic and the advanced wound care solutions are available. The Wound Care Center® at Lakewood Ranch Medical Center offers advanced therapies to patients suffering from chronic wounds.
Stephanie Bell, Director of Operations of Healogics, explained, “The incidence of chronic wounds is rising due to our aging population and increasing rates of diseases. A person with a wound has an average of three to four chronic conditions like diabetes, PAD, cardiovascular disease and COPD. If left untreated, chronic wounds can lead to diminished quality of life and possibly amputation of the affected limb. Even more alarmingly, 50% of people die within five years of amputation.”
To support this underserved and growing population of people living with chronic wounds, The Wound Care Center® at Lakewood Ranch Medical Center, in partnership with Healogics, offers an evidence-based, systematic approach to advanced wound care. A patient’s individualized treatment plan may include specialized wound dressings, debridement, compression therapy, hyperbaric oxygen therapy, advanced cellular products and topical growth factors, edema management and/or non-invasive vascular assessment. These treatments are the result of a team approach between the Center’s physicians, nurses and the referring physician. A treatment plan is developed and scheduled based on the patient’s needs. Once treatment is complete, the patient will return to their primary physician to continue routine care.
