Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy accelerates the healing of any wound, even surgical wounds. It is especially effective when complicated, non-healing wounds, are present. Conditions that have been studied where HBOT can be effective include radiation proctitis, radiation enteritis, non-healing wounds in previously radiated tissue beds, acute pancreatitis, inflammatory bowel disease and complications, postoperative ileus, and abdominal infections such as diverticulitis.

How your patients will benefit from HBOT
- Decreases inflammation
- Downregulates TNF-alpha
- Bacterocidal to anaerobic and facultatively anaerobic bacteria
- Increases Angiogenesis
- Releases pluripotent stem cells from bone marrow
Did You Know?
Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy Reduces Inflammation. HBOT helps ameliorate both acute and chronic inflammatory conditions by reducing proinflammatory cytokine release. With more oxygen present in the blood system, blood vessels can restrict their flow (vasoconstriction) to damaged tissue and reduce the fluid build up (swelling or edema) without compromising the higher oxygen levels needed for repair.
Our experienced clinical team is available to help you identify appropriate candidates for Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy and to answer any additional questions about HBOT or our facilities. You deserve the best – our mission is to achieve patient success through personalized, innovative, and compassionate care that enhances your healing potential. We do so at the lowest possible out-of-pocket cost for your patients, with only one copay and/or less coinsurance than at a hospital-based HBOT program.
