Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) is another advanced treatment option used adjunctively with an aggressive multidisciplinary therapeutic pathway and is effective in decreasing major amputations in diabetic patients with severe neuropathic and/or ischemic foot ulcers.
HBOT can also improve a patient's response to local soft tissue and bone infection and can be considered as an adjunctive therapy for patients with Wagner grade III or higher DWLE.
