The Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy Program
is a state of the art medical treatment that is used to treat a limited but diverse group of wounds and illnesses. Patients undergoing Hyperbaric Oxygen treatment are placed in a chamber where 100% oxygen is circulated. The oxygen is pressurized to 2-3 times greater than normal. This allows for one or more of the following effects:
- Advanced Wound Healing
- Elimination of Toxic Substances
- Greater Blood Vessel Formation
- Improved Infection Control
- Increased Oxygen to the Tissue
- Preservation of Damaged Tissue
These effects may occur with only one or two treatments, but some patients may undergo as many as 40-50 treatments for maximum benefits.
