Wound Care/Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy

Technology & Procedures

Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy is a medical treatment that uses the administration of 100% oxygen at a controlled pressure for a prescribed amount of time.

Located in the spacious outpatient center, our Backus team of board certified physicians and certified wound specialist nurses are trained in advanced wound care and hyperbaric medicine.

Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy is approved by the American Medical Association (AMA) and the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for the treatment of numerous conditions, including diabetic ulcerations, radiation tissue injuries and Osteomyelitis.


Backus is one of two centers in Eastern Connecticut which offers state-of-the-art hyperbaric chambers that can speed the healing process and enhance tissue growth and repair in select patients.

The Backus Wound Care Center specializes in treating non-healing wounds associated with:

  • Diabetes
  • Poor circulation
