Health Matters: Trauma Awareness

From car crashes to drownings, even falls, the Lee Health Trauma Center has treated patients with a variety of injuries for 27 years. “It’s important to recognize that between the ages of 1-44, trauma remains the leading cause of death, more so than any other illness,” said Dr. Sergey Kozyr, a trauma surgeon with Lee Health.

Which is why for the last 32 years, Lee Health has developed multiple programs to teach the community how to prevent a serious injury. “Trauma services here at Lee Health have dedicated a lot of time, a lot of resources, and a lot of personnel on a lot of these programs. Helmet safety, drunk driving, water safety, falls in the elderly, gun violence, and many other wonderful programs,” he said. Each year, the Lee Health Trauma Center cares for more than 3,000 patients between Tampa and Miami. “We’re the only level two state-designated trauma center that provides trauma services that provide trauma services between this region,” Dr. Kozyr said. The top two causes for a trauma alert are car crashes and falls. “Driving remains one of the most dangerous things we do on a daily basis. It’s important to remember that your vehicle is a weapon on the road,” he said. Making it important to slow down, stay alert, and use caution on the road and in your everyday life.
