Gas Gangrene

Gas gangrene is a serious infection secondary to the gas forming bacteria Clostridium. These bacteria grow rapidly, contaminates the wound, and produces gas that gets trapped under the skin, killing body tissue. Symptoms, such as high fevers, blisters, and continuous inflammation, oftentimes appear quickly and get worst within a short period of time.

Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy reduces swelling, helps kill bacteria, and prevent the infection from spreading to other parts of the body. It also promotes tissue healing and reduces pain.

Our experienced clinical team is available to help you identify appropriate candidates for Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy and to answer any additional questions about HBOT or our facilities. You deserve the best – our mission is to achieve patient success through personalized, innovative, and compassionate care that enhances your healing potential. We do so at the lowest possible out-of-pocket cost for your patients, with only one copay and/or less coinsurance than at a hospital-based HBOT program.
