The Center also offers specialized Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT), an effective treatment in which the patient breathes 100 percent oxygen inside a pressurized chamber, at higher than normal atmospheric pressure. HBOT quickly and safely delivers high concentrations of oxygen to the bloodstream and assists in the healing process of wounds. It is also effective in fighting certain types of infection, stimulates the growth of new blood vessels and improves circulation. Our Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy effectively treats crush injuries, bone infection, skin grafts and flaps, radiation tissue damage and diabetic wounds of the lower extremity and foot.
