Failed Surgical Grafts/Flaps
How does Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) help?
Any condition requiring surgery can be a concerning scenario for a patient. When post-surgical complications arise and a surgical graft/flap begins to fail it can become an emergency. Hyperbaric oxygen therapy forces hard working oxygen saturated blood cells to the afflicted surgical site. Those oxygen saturated blood cells begin working to kill infection, reduce swelling, and repair damaged tissues.

Treatments are conducted Monday through Friday.Each treatment is about two hours long. We are accommodating to our patient’s active schedules by having several start times.
