Bonnie Foley: Wound Healing Services Patient Story

When Bonnie started noticing a slow build-up of pain, she attributed the discomfort to arthritis or gout. After several surgeries on her leg, she found she had a serious infection and developed a nonhealing wound. Bonnie's surgeon suggested hyperbaric oxygen therapy, a novel treatment that would incorporate the use of 100 percent pressurized oxygen to help heal her wound.
