HBOT: Let’s Discuss Medicare
Do you know someone suffering with a non-healing wound? Or pain following radiation? Are you suffering with a non-healing wound following surgery or radiation?
HBOT has helped MANY alleviate suffering and heal chronic conditions. But more than that Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) has helped our dear older ones on MEDICARE, FINALLY heal so they may restore self-reliance and independence in their lives. Here at Advanced Hyperbaric Recovery we are humbly accepting MEDICARE patients.
The experience of Maryann, who was able to heal and move back into her own apartment after a prolonged stay in a care home and restored her independence, warms our hearts. We were able to offer HBOT to Mary Ann, and alleviate her many painful symptoms. Since Advanced is now contracted with MEDICARE, we can now accept many patients like Maryann who are suffering from accepted conditions, such as non-healing wounds. If you or a loved one is experiencing symptoms such as acute pain, soreness, numbness, constant urination, exhaustion, dry skin, as well as wounds that will not heal, please go see a primary care doctor to ask about diabetes.
340 million people worldwide suffer from diabetes. 20% of diabetic sufferers experience foot ulcers that will not heal, which doctors call a nonhealing wound. These can become infected, and the affected area might need to be amputated to prevent further infection. According to Mechanistic insight into diabetic wounds: Pathogenesis, molecular targets and treatment strategies to pace wound healing – ScienceDirect, diabetes affects the body’s ability to heal its wounds properly.
Maryann had a non-healing diabetic wound in her toe that would not close because of infection. After months of going back and forth to the hospital and rehab, the doctor said she would have to lose her toe. Maryann said, “I wasn’t taking any chances this time, and I had heard about Hyperbarics from a friend, not to mention my own brother had done treatments and it helped to save his leg from amputation! My treatments have been a God send! My wound has healed magnificently and prevented further amputation of my foot.” She was able to regain her independence and get rid of her wheelchair, her walker and even her cane. She was so proud that she could even drive again! Her HBOT journey and full testimonial is located here Grandmother Avoids Amputation and Regains Independance.
HBOT works by lowering inflammation, increasing collagen production, and it has antimicrobial properties by saturating the body with oxygen from the hyperbaric chamber. According to the study Hyperbaric oxygen therapy for nonhealing wounds: Treatment results of a single center, “81% of all patients referred showed that the wound was healed/or was near complete healing… HBOT may decrease the need for minor or major amputations in the case of diabetic foot ulcers in particular.” Not only was the nonhealing wound affected positively by HBOT, any other wounds the patient had were well on their way to being healed by the HBOT sessions too.
