As a comprehensive wound healing clinic, we specialize in the treatment of chronic, non-healing wounds including:
- Diabetic foot ulcers
- Venous ulcers
- Pressure ulcers
- Non-healing, post-surgical wounds
- Arterial/ischemic ulcers
- Post-radiation ulcers
Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy
We offer hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBO), a treatment that is administered in a hyperbaric chamber that delivers 100% oxygen with increase atmospheric pressure. The air pressure inside a hyperbaric oxygen chamber is about two and a half times greater than the normal pressure in the atmosphere. This “hyperbaric” (or high pressure) dose of oxygen helps your blood carry more oxygen to your organs and tissues to promote wound healing. It also activates the white blood cells to fight infection.
