Over 7 million Americans suffer from non-healing wounds annually, and that number is growing every year as it is tied to diabetes and an aging population. Often times, it is difficult to find “Advanced Wound Care.” Community physicians are not typically familiar with the new treatments and therapies to treat non-healing wounds.
Why Advanced Wound Care?
Types of Wounds We Heal
Sores that occur in approximately 15 percent of patients with diabetes, commonly located on the bottom of the foot.
Injuries to skin and underlying tissue resulting from prolonged pressure on the skin, typically from being bedridden.
Venous ulcers typically occur because of damage to the valves inside the leg veins. Without proper treatment they may not heal on their own.
Extensive wounds such as cuts, lacerations, or puncture wounds leading to damage of both the skin and underlying tissues due to a sudden or unplanned injury or accident.
Partial or total separation of previously approximated wound edges, due to a failure of proper wound healing.
By burns, cancer treatment; unsuccessful surgical pain interventions, and more.
HEALprecisely offers an Advanced Wound Care for patients who suffer from wounds that show no significant progress toward healing after 30 days of conventional (Standard Care) treatment.
Qualifications to Be Eligible for
Advanced Wound Care (AWC):
*In one NIH study of a biologix allograph, of the 14 patients who suffered from chronic leg ulcers for 24 to 84 months, all 14 patients in the study showed significant healing and were pain free upon follow-up.
