Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy: The State-of-the-Art in Wound Care
CarePoint Health’s wound care services include Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT), an effective and painless treatment option for most chronic wounds and other medical conditions. In fact, our HBOT center achieves some of the best healing rates and fastest healing times in the nation. This means you can get back to living your life the way you want in the shortest time possible.
HBOT drives highly concentrated and pure oxygen into a patient’s bloodstream, allowing it to spread deeply into the body’s tissues, stimulating the release of growth factors and stem cells, which helps to heal wounds. Closely monitored by a medical professional, patients lie in a specialized chamber for 1.5 – 2 hours per session, where they are comfortable and relaxed throughout the treatment.

A Team Approach
Because each patient’s wound is unique, physicians from a range of disciplines are involved in each patient’s care. As appropriate, podiatrists, plastic surgeons, infectious disease specialists and general surgeons, all affiliated with The Centers for Wound Care, work together to identify the type of wound and its underlying causes. With this information in hand, they develop a comprehensive and customized treatment plan.

As a center of excellence at CarePoint Health, our wound care centers participate in clinical trials utilizing the latest wound care products, dressings and antibiotics, many not yet available to the general public. For patients, this provides assurance that they are receiving the latest therapy delivered by recognized specialists.
