Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy

Our physicians and staff work closely with primary care and referring physicians to ensure that each patient receives an individually tailored treatment plan. We consider our involvement a partnership with the patient and referring physician to establish the best care and outcome possible for the patient. Our goal is to send patients back to their physicians wound free and healthy.

STATE OF THE ART HYPERBARIC CHAMBERS
We offer state of the art wound healing techniques, including Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy. Patients utilizing hyperbaric oxygen therapy enter a chamber where they breathe 100% oxygen under pressure. This process drives oxygen into cells, increasing the cells ability to function. An additional effect of the increased oxygen is angiogenesis, growth of new blood vessels, which has long-lasting therapeutic benefits. This treatment can quickly raise tissue oxygen levels 1 0 to 13 times their normal rate and accelerate the healing of wounds.

CONDITIONS THAT COULD BENEFIT FROM HBOT

Hyperbaric oxygen therapy enhances healing in selected
problem wounds.
• Diabetic wounds of the lower extremity
• Radiation tissue damage
• Compromised skin grafts and flaps
• Crush injuries
• Chronic osteomyelitis (bone infection)
• Acute traumatic injury
• Necrotizing soft tissue infections

There are some restrictions with this outpatient treatment. Please ask our trained staff.

8 million people suffer from chronic wounds, and that number is quickly growing due to an aging population and an increase in diabetes and cardiovascular disease.
