  • Diabetics with chronic ulcers of lower extremities (Wagner Grade III, IV)
  • Compromised skin grafts
  • Flap failures or rejections
  • Radiation injuries, such as osteoradionecrosis, radiation cystitis or proctitis, or soft tissue radionecrosis.
  • Chronic refractory osteomyelitis

Among others.

Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT)

HBOT is non-invasive (does not puncture the skin), painless, and is provided in an outpatient setting. Treatments take place in a comfortable, climate-controlled, multi-place chamber that is carefully monitored. After a physical evaluation, you’ll enter the chamber. As the chamber pressurizes, you may experience a sensation similar to an airplane landing. During the treatment you can comfortably talk, read, nap, or watch a movie. As the treatment concludes, the pressure decreases, producing a feeling similar to when a plane is taking off.

HBOT sessions typically last two hours and take place five days a week. Your physician will determine the number of therapies that will be most beneficial to you.

The treatment is accepted by Medicare, Medicaid, and many commercial insurers with a physician’s referral.

Ask your physician to refer you to the Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy Program at Ascension Lourdes Hospital.
