Medicare Approved Indications for Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy

At the New Brunswick Center for Wound Healing, we provide our patients with access to state-of-the-art Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT). This therapy is simple in nature, utilizing a painless and non-invasive technique to heal patients’ wounds. Patients who undergo HBOT are asked to relax and breathe in a chamber full of 100% oxygen. This increase in breathable oxygen guarantees that a patient will have oxygen rich blood, an essential component to wound recovery in a person’s body.

Hyperbaric oxygen may be used as an important adjunctive therapy for a number of approved symptoms including but not limited to the following:

  • Diabetic wounds of lower extremities, non-healing Wagner grade III wound or higher
  • Chronic refractory osteomyelitis
  • Osteoradionecrosis
  • Soft tissue radionecrosis
  • Comprised skin grafts and flaps
  • Acute peripheral arterial insufficiency
  • Progressive necrotizing infections
  • Gas embolism
