Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBO)

Sometimes your wounds will not respond to general wound care treatments alone. For some patients, Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) is an effective technology that supplements the other treatment methods used by physicians. HBOT therapy involves daily visits to the wound center for a period of approximately 4-8 weeks, then follow-up wound care to monitor healing progress. During HBOT therapy you are placed in a pressurized chamber where you breathe 100% oxygen. This increases the presence of oxygen within the wound and thus aids in healing and growth of new tissue.

Not all insurance plans approve the use of HBOT for all diagnoses.
