Hyperbaric Medicine

Hyperbaric oxygen therapy uses a special high-pressure chamber to raise the amount of oxygen that enters your body with each breath. This extra supply of oxygen helps wounds heal and your white blood cells fight infection.

Hyperbaric Medicine

We are staffed by two hyperbaric physicians, one nurse practitioner, and one certified hyperbaric nurse, all trained in the administration of hyperbaric oxygen therapy. In addition there are plastic surgery, radiation therapy, and oncology physicians who work with us to provide therapy for their patients.

Conditions

Doctors use hyperbaric oxygen therapy to treat numerous issues.

Hyperbaric oxygen therapy does not hurt; however, you might feel pressure or fullness in your ears. Read more about this therapy in Treatments and Services.
