About Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy
Sometimes wounds do not respond to general wound care treatments. Some patients are candidates for hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBO). This technology compliments other wound healing methods. During HBO therapy, you are placed in a pressurized chamber where you breathe 100 percent oxygen. By increasing the presence of oxygen within the wound and surrounding tissue, new tissue growth can develop. Our care team provides family-centered services, so you and your caregivers understand the importance of every appointment. We monitor progress at every session and communicate with your primary care doctors about long-term wound healing management goals.
