Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy
Hyperbaric oxygen therapy is a treatment in which the patient breathes 100 percent oxygen while enclosed in a pressurized chamber at greater-than-normal atmospheric pressure. This treatment helps the body's natural wound healing mechanisms function more efficiently. When indicated, hyperbaric therapy significantly improves healing outcomes and greatly expedites the healing process.
