Wound Care and Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy
Advanced techniques such as hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) can help patients recover more quickly. The HBOT chamber creates a healing environment that can help
heal wounds and save damaged tissue. Hyperbaric oxygen therapy, in some cases, can save one or more limbs of people with diabetes who are at risk of losing them.
At New York Methodist's Wound Care and Hyperbaric Center, hyperbaric oxygen therapy is administered by board certified physicians and well-trained nurses and support staff and is located at 1 Prospect Park West in a renovated suite.
The length of treatment depends on the condition. Patients may require up to thirty sessions for non-healing wounds. Hyperbaric oxygen therapy is used for:
- Limb saving: treating non-healing wounds of patients
at risk of limb loss due to diabetes, osteomyelitis, or traumatic crush
- Tissue saving: from effects of radiation therapy, failed flaps and skin grafts
