    Patient in Hyperbaric Chamber1Hyperbaric oxygen therapy means breathing pure oxygen while enclosed in a pressurized chamber. The increased air pressure allows your lungs to take in more oxygen; your blood then carries the oxygen throughout your body, assisting your natural wound-healing mechanisms and speeding the healing process. For your comfort, we offer the largest, most state-of-the-art hyperbaric chamber in New England.

    We heal chronic wounds faster by treating the underlying cause of the wound, and applying proven medical and surgical techniques that are focused on your recovery.
