Hyperbaric oxygen therapy is a type of treatment for non-healing wounds that meet specific criteria.
During treatments, patients breathe 100 percent oxygen inside a pressurized chamber. This allows for rapid concentration of oxygen in the bloodstream that is delivered to the wound area for faster healing. Essentially, this heals the wound from the inside out.
Hyperbaric oxygen therapy benefits include:
- Help reduce swelling
- Fight infection
- Build new blood vessels
- Ultimately produce healthy tissue
If your physician feels hyperbaric oxygen therapy is the best and most appropriate treatment option for your wound, our knowledgeable staff will help guide you through the process.
Hyperbaric oxygen therapy is typically covered by Medicare and most health plans.
