Coming to Henry Mayo
Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy
Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) will be available at Henry Mayo by summer 2017. HBOT is a therapy that enhances the body's natural healing process by putting the patient in an enclosed environment in which he or she inhales 100% oxygen. The result is that the amount of oxygen in the patient's blood is increased, which in turn restores the normal levels of blood gases and tissue function to promote healing and fight infection. HBOT is an effective therapy that is used to supplement other advanced wound care treatments.
Venus Ablation Therapy
Venus Ablation Therapy is a minimally invasive alternative to surgical stripping of the great saphenous vein. This service will also be coming to Henry Mayo in summer 2017.
