In partnership with the Symposium on Advanced Wound Care (SAWC), AIROS is proud to support, sponsor, and co-present a Virtual Wound Rounds session on May 27 entitled, “LOVE: Lymphedema. Origin. Venous. Etiology.). Registration is free – learn more today!
What happens when you combine two medical conditions which may often be misdiagnosed or improperly treated? That would be Phlebolymphedema, or lymphedema of venous etiology.
A panel of top physicians and lymphedema therapists with decades of studying lymphatic and venous disorders will discuss this topic in-depth during a virtual education session. Our team will also participate in the clinical discussion, as well as present our product line and approach to lymphedema.
Speakers will include:
Frank Aviles, Jr., PT, CWS, FACCWS, CLT-LANA, ALM, AWCC, DAPWCA
Robyn Bjork, MPT, CLWT, CWS, CLT-LANA

Join us for this exciting program as we continue to work with our clinical partners and organizations to push the envelope in optimally treating lymphedema of all origins.
The event will be held on Thursday, May 27, from 5:30-7:00 p.m. EST.
More About Virtual Wound Rounds
Virtual Wound Rounds (VWR) was originally developed for Physical Therapy students who were unable to participate in wound rotations due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The response from both students and practicing clinicians was so positive that VWR evolved into unique educational series of Zoom webinars last year.
Frank Aviles Jr., the originator of the concept, moderated and questioned teams of multidisciplinary wound specialists on how they would handle various wound issues he would present. Thirty-three of the top clinical wound specialists participated and the 2020 VWR webinar series attracted nearly 1,500 viewers. Registrants to the programs ran the gamut from students interested in learning more about the field, to wound care clinicians wanting to learn from the experts Frank had secured.
