FIRST TIME IN TAMILNADU TO SAVE LEGS FROM AMPUTATION
HBOT (Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy)
Hyperbaric oxygen therapy involves breathing pressurized oxygen in a Chamber. It is a well-established treatment for wounds that won't heal as a result of diabetes. In a hyperbaric oxygen therapy chamber, the air pressure is increased to three times higher than normal air pressure. A patient breathes 100% oxygen under a pressure greater than the atmospheric pressure. This helps fight bacteria and stimulate the release of substances called growth factors and stem cells, which promote healing at the site of the wound. During your next visit please contact our staff at the Front office for more information.
