About Our Facility
The Wound Center of Niagara offers comprehensive care services which means a one stop place for chronic and non-healing wounds. Led by Dr. Michael J. Mitchell and a team of physicians representing many medical specialties, the Center offers patients a wide range of options and expertise.
Among the treatments offered by The Wound Center of Niagara is hyperbaric oxygen therapy. Three hyperbaric oxygen chambers deliver oxygen under pressure. While in these pressurized chambers, patients breathe 100 percent oxygen, which helps the patient’s blood to carry more oxygen to organs and connective tissue. This stimulates tissues and helps wounds heal more quickly.
Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT)
Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) is a medical treatment where a patient breathes 100 percent oxygen while in a pressurized chamber. Large doses of oxygen are dissolved into blood or body tissues at these pressures. This increased oxygen promotes wound healing by:
- Stimulating small blood vessel growth
- Promoting new skin growth
- Helping to fight infection
- Speeding up the healing process
