Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy
Our wound care center features state-of-the-art hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT), a treatment that delivers high concentrations of 100% oxygen into the bloodstream. This assists in the healing process of wounds and can help the body fight certain types of infections. It also stimulates the growth of new blood vessels, which can improve circulation and wound healing.
HBOT is used to treat:
- Crush injuries
- Some types of infections
- Skin grafts and flaps
- Brown recluse spider bites
- Diabetic wounds of the lower extremity
