Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy

Hyperbaric Oxygen therapy helps the body’s natural ability to heal wounds and prevent possible limb loss. Using oxygen under increased pressure to speed healing and repair tissue damage due to ischemia or insuffi cient blood supply, hyperbaric therapy has a proven track record in the healing of chronic wounds, as well as a host of other medical conditions including radiation damage, crush injuries and chronic refractory osteomyelitis.

Our Hyperbaric Unit

Located on the same floor as our Wound Care unit, the Hyperbaric unit consists of two transparent acrylic compartments in a spacious room. Each compartment offers patients complete visibility, freedom of movement and the ability to easily communicate with our team. Patients may rest comfortably or watch television while receiving treatment.

The unit is under the medical direction of a hyperbaric-certified physician. The nurse-manager and technician are always on-site and able to respond immediately to patient needs.

We work closely with our patients’ healthcare providers. To refer a patient for evaluation or for more information, call today.
