Our physicians and nurse practitioners follow patients at our wound centers as well as at a variety of Assisted Living Facilities from across Tampa, Brandon, & Bradenton. By referring an ESRD patient to us at the early stages of their symptoms, you can ensure that your patient’s outcomes will be addressed timely and efficiently.
The common risk factors for poor wound healing observed in patients with CKD and ESRD, include poorly controlled diabetes mellitus, neuropathy, peripheral vascular disease, chronic venous insufficiency, and aging. ESRD patients have a unique spectrum of wounds related to impaired calcium–phosphorus metabolism, including calciphylaxis, in addition to having the risk factors presented by CKD patients. Overall, there is a wide range of uremic toxins that may affect local mechanisms of wound healing. The staff at Hyper Healing Wound Care Center has the experience with a broad array of wounds, especially in the complex renal patient.
