Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy

Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBO) is a medical treatment that enhances the body’s natural healing process. During treatment, patients lie in a transparent chamber and breathe 100-percent oxygen.

How does it work?

A patient will visit our Wound Care Center on a set schedule for several weeks. During each session, they will enter the hyperbaric chamber and relax. This controlled environment improves oxygen delivery to all tissues of their body. It also encourages their body to:

  • Reduce swelling
  • Fight infection
  • Build new blood vessels
  • Produce new, healthy tissue

Who is HBO for?

HBO is for patients with chronic, non-healing diabetic wounds who have tried other forms of wound care treatment. HBO is also a safe, effective treatment option for patients with injuries or conditions following months or years of radiation therapy.
