Hyperbaric Oxygen (HBO) Therapy

Hyperbaric oxygen (HBO) therapy is a treatment in which the patient breathes 100% pure oxygen while inside a pressurized chamber. The increased air pressure inside the chamber helps your blood carry more oxygen to organs and connective tissues to promote would healing. HBO is provided once daily for approximately four to six weeks. One treatment takes about two hours and is quite comfortable for most patients.
