Equipment and Technology
Our providers incorporate state-of-the-art equipment and technology as they provide care for our patients. Our residents and fellows learn the latest techniques and philosophies to incorporate these procedures and to further refine them in their future practices.

Hyperbaric oxygen therapy to help patients with wounds that are difficult to heal.
Extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO), a life-support system for patients with acute cardiac or respiratory failure.
