Advanced wound healing with hyperbaric oxygen therapy

The hyperbaric chamber is a painless environment that delivers oxygen-rich therapy to promote wound healing. During hyperbaric oxygen therapy, concentrated oxygen quickly increases in your bloodstream and helps heal the wound from the inside out. Hyperbaric oxygen therapy is a treatment for other conditions in addition to diabetic foot ulcers and slow-healing wounds.

When hyperbaric oxygen therapy is recommended, our care team takes the time to answer your questions. Call (205) 814-2342.
