What is Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy?

To help in your healing, you may be referred for hyperbaric oxygen therapy, in which you breathe pure oxygen inside a pressurized chamber. It helps resolve painful, stubborn wounds and infections, eliminate harmful toxins from the body and promote growth of new blood vessels in the body tissues.

Our hyperbaric oxygen therapy services treat:

  • Qualifying diabetic wound wounds of the lower extremity

  • Compromised skin grafts and flaps

  • Delayed radiation injury

  • Wounds due to serious infection

  • Bone infections

  • Crush injuries
