Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy

We offer hyperbaric oxygen therapy as a primary treatment and as a supplement to other wound therapies. During this therapy, patients breathe pure oxygen through a facemask, which greatly increases the amount of oxygen delivered to wounds and accelerates healing. Patients lie inside a pressurized chamber that allows the lungs to breathe in more air, making pure oxygen delivery more effective.

This therapy helps the body:

  • Grow new blood cells
  • Prevent infections
  • Rebuild bone, muscle and skin

Hyperbaric oxygen therapy is easy, painless and proven to treat chronic wounds. Read our patient guide for hyperbaric oxygen therapy.

In addition to hyperbaric oxygen therapy, we’ll provide educational resources to help you keep wounds clean and free from infection at home. We also offer a number of support groups and classes for patients with chronic wounds. Find support near you.
