Center for Wound Healing and Hyperbaric Medicine
Don't let a chronic wound keep you from enjoying life.
A wound or sore that won't heal is more than a nuisance. The longer a wound takes to heal, the greater the risk of serious infection. Diabetics, in particular, are especially prone to this
More and more patients and physicians are turning to wound care specialists who employ the most sophisticated treatment protocols. Here, that's the Iroquois Memorial Hospital Center for Wound
Healing and Hyperbaric Medicine.
Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy
The Center for Wound Healing and Hyperbaric Medicine often uses hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBO) as a form of treatment. This treatment enhances the body's natural healing ability as well as
strengthens the body's immune system. By dramatically increasing the oxygen content level in blood and compromised tissue, HBO provides the ideal environment to promote the growth of new
blood vessels and skin - a cornerstone in wound healing.
HBO is a thoroughly tested, FDA approved, completely safe and painless therapy that has helped thousands of patients worldwide heal faster and better than ever before.
