Marshfield Clinic’s Center for Hyperbaric Medicine and Tissue Repair blends state-of-the art technology and cutting-edge treatments to help wounds heal safely and as quickly as possible. 

Here’s what sets us apart:

  • We take a proactive approach to wound care, using surgical techniques to close wounds and help them heal faster.
  • A state-of-the-art hyperbaric chamber, which can treat 10 patients at a time. This chamber is one of only a few like it in the United States.
  • We deliver around-the-clock care.
  • We treat critically-ill patients. 

How hyperbaric medicine works 

Hyperbaric treatment uses oxygen as a medicine. Using hyperbaric medicine, a significant difference is created between the amount of oxygen in the blood stream and that found at an injury or infection site. This difference causes new blood vessels to grow into that area and helps fight infections.

  • Chronic bone infections
  • Late effects of radiation therapy
