Hyperbaric oxygen therapy is a diabetic foot ulcer treatment approved by the FDA that aims to help heal these wounds with pure oxygen.
Common side effects of diabetes include foot ulcers, cardiovascular disease, vision damage, gum disease, fatigue, stroke, and nerve damage.
The diabetic sores on the feet of those with this metabolic disease are foot ulcers that can become infected if not properly treated.
Hyperbaric oxygen therapy could help patients with diabetes by improving the wound-healing process of diabetic foot ulcers.
Diabetes is a growing epidemic, creating non-healing wounds. Prevention is key, but risks of amputation remain. HBOT heals diabetic wounds & saves lives.
HMS opens Manhattan HBOT location, the first free-standing, non-hospital based HBOT site dedicated to hard chamber hyperbaric oxygen therapy in the area.
