HyOx Medical Treatment Center is a comprehensive outpatient rehabilitation facility specializing in hyperbaric oxygen therapy. HyOx opened its doors in NW Atlanta (Marietta) in 1999 with the mission of providing patient-centered rehabilitative care through hyperbaric oxygen therapy, respiratory therapy, physical therapy, and other related services. In 2010, HyOx opened its second facility on the Gwinnett Medical Center – Lawrenceville campus. HyOx is one of the United States’ first clinical hyperbaric oxygen therapy facilities to achieve accreditation from the Undersea and Hyperbaric Medical Society (UHMS), the field’s protocol and standard-setting organization. HyOx is locally owned and operated.
The HyOx team delivers hyperbaric oxygen treatments, or “dives”, by administering 100% oxygen for a variety of conditions. HyOx operates Georgia’s two largest hyperbaric chambers, 31 feet in length and nine feet in diameter. The chambers comfortably accommodate 12 sitting patients plus an attendant or physician, who remains with patients throughout treatment. Patients pass the time reading, listening to music, or watching videos on the chamber’s entertainment system. Medications, beverages, snacks, and a private restroom are available during treatment. The chambers have temperature-controlled environments, comfortable seating, accommodations for patients who must recline or remain in wheelchair, and private restrooms.
Featuring two board-certified physicians, certified hyperbaric-registered nurses, certified wound specialists, and certified hyperbaric technicians, HyOx works collaboratively with the patient’s referring physician to coordinate hyperbaric oxygen treatments with other treatment modalities and/or surgery. Treatments are prescribed based upon the directives of the referring physician and the results of a comprehensive hyperbaric medicine consultation and evaluation. We perform 5,000+ hyperbaric oxygen therapy treatments annually, with a total of 75,000+ hyperbaric oxygen therapy treatments since 1999. HyOx is highly focused on the patient’s experience and making hyperbaric oxygen therapy a part of the patient’s total medical treatment plan.
