There's no longer any reason to live with a non-healing wound.

Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy
Hyperbaric oxygen therapy is used to treat some medical conditions and is also used in treatment of certain kinds of advanced wounds. The treatment takes place in a chamber that you can see out of. You lie on a stretcher inside the chamber where you can watch TV, read a book or watch a movie. The chamber is pressurized, with patients breathing 100-percent oxygen. Your blood carries the extra oxygen and takes it to your injured area to promote better and quicker healing.
