Sarasota Memorial offers hyperbaric oxygen therapy to treat various conditions, including side effects from diabetes and radiation treatment. Hyperbaric oxygen therapy involves breathing 100% oxygen at a pressure greater than the surrounding atmosphere. This therapy can stimulate the growth of new blood vessels, tissue and bone cells, which can, in turn, accelerate the healing process.
