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 NewYork-Presbyterian Brooklyn Methodist Hospital's Wound Care and Hyperbaric Center, hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) is administered by board certified physicians, well-trained nurses, and caring support staff. Wound Care and Hyperbaric Center 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 (HBOT) is used for:

  • Limb-Saving: Treating non-healing wounds of patients at risk of limb loss due to diabetes, osteomyelitis, or traumatic crush injuries.
  • Tissue-Saving: From effects of radiation therapy, failed flaps, and skin grafts
