Amputation rate for diabetic foot higher by 40 times compared to any other illnesses including the motor-vehicle accident.
Hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) success rate is as much as 95% to avoid amputation. Indeed it is the treatment of choice for diabetic foot gangrene.
Diabetic lower extremity ulcers have been the focus of most wound research in hyperbaric medicine since the cause of these wounds are multifactorial and HBOT can address many of these factors.
A diabetic wound can be treated with HBOT and other procedures that can increase the chance of healing. See some photos that our patients have healed.
