Expert, multidisciplinary team
Speed up the wound healing process with help from a team that includes doctors and specialists in:
Hyperbaric oxygen therapy
Your care team may recommend hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT), a painless, non-invasive treatment that can help your wound heal more quickly. During HBOT, you lie in a see-through chamber while breathing 100 percent oxygen. (Air you breathe in daily life is only 21 percent oxygen.) This strengthens your body’s immune response to fight infections and helps grow new blood vessels, which can lead to new, healthy tissue at the wound.
You’ll need a doctor’s referral to determine whether hyperbaric oxygen therapy is right for you.
