Advanced Treatment Procedures
Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy
Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) is a sophisticated treatment modality
that is an essential component in the healing process of wounds and fighting
certain infections. Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy is a non-invasive and painless
treatment that consists of laying inside a pressurized chamber and breathing
in pure 100% oxygen. Due to the speedy delivery of highly oxygenated blood
to the wound, wound healing is accelerated. The high concentration of
oxygen in the body’s tissue promotes new tissue development, increases
white blood cell activity, stimulates the growth of new blood vessels,
and improves circulation.
Some conditions Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy may be suggested for include:
- Diabetic wounds
- Slow-to-heal wounds
- Radiation injuries
- Soft tissue radionecrosis and osteoradionecrosis
- Chronic osteomyelitis
- Certain bone and skin infections
- Compromised skin grafts and flaps
- Carbon monoxide poisoning
- Decompression sickness
- Crushing injury
Typically, treatments are daily and range between 60-90 minutes per session.
The number of sessions vary based on diagnosis.
Our Center is staffed by a multi-disciplinary team of physicians, nurses
and technicians with advanced training in wound care and hyperbaric. We
utilize a comprehensive approach to treat all wounds, but specialize in
those that have become chronic or difficult to heal. Our team includes
skilled foot and ankle surgeons, podiatrists, vascular and general surgeons,
infectious disease specialists, reconstruction and hyperbaric medicine
experts and inpatient management by hospitalists. Additional care is provided,
as necessary, by physical therapists, diabetes educators, nutritionists
and social workers.
