Asheville, NC (August 12, 2020)—Avadim Health, Inc. (“Avadim”), a high-growth healthcare and wellness company, today announced the acceleration of its strategy to partner with the nation’s largest urology group practices for the management of our nation’s number one infection, urinary tract infections (UTIs). The goal of this strategy is to help patients suffering from recurrent urinary tract infections (RUTIs) by utilizing the Theraworx® Protect U-Pak.

Avadim CEO Steve Woody said, “It is our goal to reach the millions of patients who suffer from recurrent urinary tract infections and accelerate clinical recommendations for the Theraworx Protect U-Pak. It is critical to our strategy to work with LUGPA (Largest Urology Group Practices Association) member practices. LUGPA is the association of our nation’s largest urology practices and is proving to be an influential partner in our mission. LUGPA and the Theraworx Protect U-Pak are joining forces to help improve the quality of life for suffering patients, whether they are senior post-menopausal women, spinal cord injury patients, or senior men who catheterize to maintain a functional life. Some of these practices treat thousands of suffering patients every month and until now have not had a hospital proven and tested topical innovation like the U-Pak to recommend. We are honored to partner with these front-line practices who are called upon daily to treat and manage these patients.”

Financial Manager of St. Louis Urology Tom Hall said, “We treat thousands of patients of all ages who suffer from recurrent urinary tract infections. Our mainstay approach has been to coach lifestyle changes, hygiene practices, and for many, provide oral antibiotics and other medications, which may also cause secondary adverse events. The U-Pak is easy to use, topical and proven to be safe, and whether we provide it from our office or refer the patient to a local pharmacy to purchase, the U-Pak is demonstrating the results to serve as an additional clinical option for us to recommend. We are always seeking safe and effective solutions for this particular patient demographic to help relieve their suffering and significant inconvenience associated with these recurring infections.”
