During Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) the patient breathes 100 percent oxygen while under pressure, causing oxygen to saturate blood plasma to 20 times the normal level. This process allows oxygenated blood to be delivered four times further into diseased tissue than by breathing air alone. Creating a highly oxygenated environment builds new blood vessels, decreases painful edema, and invigorates healing mechanisms while killing harmful bacteria and neutralizing tissue-destroying oxygen free radicals.

Conditions We Treat

Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy is used to treat a variety of conditions including:

  • Enhancement of healing in selected problem wounds
  • Crush injuries
  • Necrotizing soft tissue infections
  • Osteomyelitis
  • Radiation tissue injury
  • Skin grafts and flaps
  • Diabetic wounds of the lower extremity
  • Acute traumatic injury
