Hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) is one of several advanced treatment options offered at the Methodist Wound Treatment Center in Oak Ridge, Tennessee. HBOT has helped numerous people overcome these conditions and return to healthier, happier lifestyles. This treatment works in three major ways: It stimulates the formation of new blood vessels, improves the flow of oxygen into tissues, and increases the formation fibrous tissues. In short, HBOT allows for an increase of 10 times in plasma oxygen concentration, thereby accelerating the wound healing process.
Typically, patients are referred to the center by their primary care doctor or other specialist. We will, however, schedule an evaluation without a referral.
Services are covered by most insurance companies, Medicare, and TennCare, although some insurance companies require a referral from your doctor and prior approval. Our staff will assist you with insurance issues.
