Studies have shown that wound care treatment has reduced amputation rates and length of hospital stays. Through advanced treatment options, our team will develop a plan of care specific to your needs. Advanced treatment options include:
Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy
Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy, or HBOT, delivers high concentrations of 100% oxygen (O2) into the bloodstream. Breathing O2 under pressure dissolves more oxygen in your body's blood which is then delivered to those areas that are having trouble healing due to the lack of O2 in the surrounding tissues. This type of therapy assists in the healing process of wounds and is effective in fighting certain types of infections. It also helps to stimulate the growth of new blood vessels, which can improve circulation and wound healing.
