UHS provides hyperbaric therapy

At the UHS Center for Advanced Wound Care, hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) is used to treat a range of medical conditions, and ongoing research suggests that new applications may be on the horizon. Today, however, the most common and successful HBOT applications treat four categories of chronic, non-healing wounds:

  • Diabetic wounds of the lower extremity
  • Chronic bone infection (chronic refractory osteomyelitis) that antibiotics and debridement (removal of damaged tissue) alone cannot resolve
  • Compromised skin flaps and grafts
  • Delayed radiation injury due to damaged tissue from radiotherapy
