Top Benefits of Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy for Wound Healing

Hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) involves breathing pure oxygen inside a pressurized chamber. HBOT has been used for various medical conditions, including wound healing. This therapy helps increase the amount of oxygen in the body, stimulating the body’s natural healing processes.

How Does Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy Work?

During Hyperbaric oxygen therapy, a patient is placed in a chamber and exposed to pure oxygen at greater than atmospheric pressure. The increased pressure helps deliver more oxygen to the body’s tissues, including the wound site, allowing it to reach areas of the body that may not receive enough oxygen due to poor circulation or injury. In addition, this extra oxygen enhances the body’s natural healing processes, such as blood vessel formation, collagen production and tissue regeneration.

Benefits of HBOT for Wound Healing

HBOT has demonstrated the following benefits for those with troublesome wounds. Consult your doctor to see if HBOT therapy could help you.

Accelerated Healing

One of the primary benefits of hyperbaric oxygen therapy is that it accelerates the healing process. Oxygen is essential for wound healing, and HBOT provides extra oxygen to the body. Oxygen is needed by cells to generate energy, repair damaged tissues and fight infection. By increasing oxygen levels in the body, HBOT promotes collagen production and the growth of new blood vessels, which delivers essential nutrients to the wound site, promoting faster healing and improving patient outcomes.

Reduced Inflammation

Inflammation is a normal wound healing process, but too much inflammation can slow recovery. HBOT helps to reduce inflammation by increasing oxygen levels in the body. By reducing inflammation, HBOT promotes faster healing and reduces the risk of complications like infection.

Conditions that Can Benefit from HBOT

Hyperbaric oxygen therapy is effective in treating a range of conditions that affect wound healing, including:

  • Diabetic foot ulcers
  • Non-healing wounds
  • Radiation injuries
  • Skin grafts and flaps
  • Burns
  • Carbon monoxide poisoning
  • Crush injuries

Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy: A Safe and Effective Treatment

HBOT is a safe and effective treatment for wound healing. It is a non-invasive treatment that involves no surgery or medication, making it an ideal option for patients who cannot tolerate traditional wound healing treatments. The painless treatment typically lasts 60 to 90 minutes, with most patients receiving multiple treatments.

To Dr. Sonny and all the staff at Marietta: What a wonderful appointment I had at Medici for epidural injections! I can't say enough about Jana and Sarah and the gentleman in the back and front office personnel also. They were so caring and friendly; it was quite entertaining while waiting for my turn! They have such a pleasant camaraderie together and engage the patients in conversation too. They bring a very comfortable atmosphere to all. It sure helped pass the time and alleviate any anxiety one might have. The best part is I walked out with NO PAIN. However, later I realized that was mostly due to the local anesthesia... Ha, ha on me! I know it is a temporary fix, but I will enjoy it as long as it is effective. I thank all who I've been in touch with during this journey. You're all awesome at all locations!! P.S. Jana and Sarah: THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR HELPING ME ON AND OFF THOSE NARROW TORTUOUS BEDS!!!! It was my biggest fear!!! Blessings to all...."I'll be back!!"

Dr. Geiger is heaven sent. After one visit hearing my story of dealing with 13 years of awful pain from shingles, she changed my medications. That night I started the new medications and have remained pain free. I still use lidocaine patches but the new medications have made All the difference. She's deeply caring for her patients and thorough in her questions and examination. Too bad I didn't know of her earlier. She has changed my life and I thank God everyday she's in my life. I can't find enough words to praise her skills and thank her for being my caregiver. Apparently she has recently moved here from Florida and we are glad to have her here.

Dr. Dosanjh Patient

Dr. Dosanjh is extremely knowledgeable in his specialty with remarkable knowledge of anatomy and the causes of pain. His ability to diagnose the cause of pain and then provide a complete set of progressive options for resolution is superb. His friendly demeanor enhances the doctor-patient relationship.

Everyone in this office is TERRIFIC. Starting from the front office checking in, and going into the room for my visit with dr. Sonny Dosanjh. Dr. Sonny is EXCELLENT he really cares about his patients, he listens to what I have to say, does not interrupt me, he is very concerned about what is going on with me and my health concerns. He really cares. I would highly recommend this office to anyone! They really care and they are genuine. My PCP recommended Dr. Sonny and I'm ever so grateful for that

Dr. Dosanjh Patient

Thoroughly appreciated the medical services provided by Dr. Dosanjh. Dr. Dosanjh is very confident in his patient care and concern. I would definitely refer others and have been telling others about my experience at Medici Spine & Pain both Kennesaw and Buckhead. I wish he took my insurance, as I have injuries not related to my work incident for which I was seeing Dr. Dosanjh. Thank you so very much, Dr. Dosanjh! The staff is warm, welcoming and cheerful and most helpful.


Dr. Dosanjh is a very smart, caring doctor who is highly skilled in his field. He spends whatever time is necessary to "hear" his patients and to explain the proper and best results course of action. I have a very complicated head and neck injury, so it was essential to me to have someone who truly listened with undivided attention, and thought outside the box when necessary. His staff is exemplary. They could not be more helpful and thoughtful. Lucy in particular is a gift of sunshine.

Jill C.

Dr. Sonny is the best! He has done more for me in 2 months than my previous doctor did in 14 years! If you truly want to get out of pain, then contact Dr. Sonny immediately! I just cannot reiterate how incredible a doctor he is! For that matter, his entire staff is warm and inviting! And to top it off, as a patient you get free use of their amazing gym. Highly, highly, highly recommend Dr. Sonny!
