Hyperbaric chamber for burns

Hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) is an advanced treatment that promotes healing and tissue growth. This is accomplished by breathing pure oxygen while inside of a hyperbaric oxygen chamber. The increased oxygen in your blood promotes increased healing at the burn site.

Depending on the severity of your condition, HBOT may be a viable option to be incorporated into your treatment plan. Our unit houses two hyperbaric chambers that are available for all burn care needs.

Our primary burn support group meets the second Thursday of each month, and is dedicated to being a survivor resource for you, as well as your family members, friends and caregivers.

Meetings provide a place for sharing experiences, asking questions and coming together to support one another.
