When should you seek treatment for your wound?

  • You have a wound that hasn’t healed in 30 days
  • You have a sore with increasing pain, redness and swelling, and/or bad odor
  • You have a surgical wound that has become infected

Advanced wound healing with hyperbaric oxygen therapy*

The hyperbaric chamber is an 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.

Hyperbaric chamber used to treat many conditions

Our wound care doctors use hyperbaric oxygen therapy* to treat many adult health conditions, including:

  • Bubbles of air in your blood vessels (arterial gas embolism)
  • Burns, including radiation injury
  • Carbon monoxide poisoning
  • Crash injury to skin or bone
  • Decompression sickness
  • Foot and leg ulcers
  • Gangrene
  • Infection of skin (graft)
  • Sudden vision loss

Work with our wound care team to manage your recovery

Our doctors and nurses listen to understand you and your health concerns. We understand your frustration when wounds are not healing. We show you how to improve your wound-cleaning hygiene at home as part of your personalized recovery plan. Our goal is to help prevent rehospitalization for infection or wound-healing complications and improve your quality of life.

*Hyperbaric oxygen therapy is only offered at Ascension Columbia St. Mary’s Hospital Milwaukee.
