Celebrating more than 20 years of providing hyperbaric oxygen therapy in Atlanta to help advance healing in medical conditions approved by the Undersea and Hyperbaric Medical Society, Medicare and other insurance plans.
HyOx Medical Treatment Center is an accredited comprehensive outpatient rehabilitation facility specializing in hyperbaric oxygen therapy and rehabilitation services. We prescribe 100 percent oxygen as a drug with time and pressure limits to patients with chronic wounds, infections and other injuries. Patients undergo hyperbaric oxygen therapy in Georgia’s largest pressurized chambers to supersaturate the body with the oxygen needed to feed starving tissues and cells and advance the healing process and improve quality of life.
Hyperbaric oxygen therapy is administered as a primary treatment or an adjunct to other forms of treatment (surgery, wound care, antibiotics) to help achieve the best clinical outcome. We administer hyperbaric medicine to patients from multiple referral specialties including radiation oncology, plastic and reconstrutive surgery, infectious disease, podiatry, ENT, orthopedic surgery, colo/rectal, urology, and oral and maxillofacial surgery.
HyOx opened its flagship facility in NW Atlanta (Marietta, Ga) in 1999. In 2010, HyOx opened its second facility on the Gwinnett Medical Center campus in Lawrenceville, Ga.
Our mission is to provide the highest quality, patient-centered care through hyperbaric oxygen therapy, respiratory therapy, physical therapy, and other related outpatient programs and services. We seek to deliver optimal clinical outcomes for medically complex patients in a comfortable environment staffed by an expert interdisciplinary medical team actively and compassionately involved in each patient’s care.
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 sub-specialty’s protocol and standard-setting organization. HyOx is locally owned and operated with board-certified physicians on staff at various Metro Atlanta hospitals.
HyOx utilizes an interdisciplinary approach with individualized treatment plans designed to meet each patient’s needs. The patient and their family are considered integral members of the team and their participation in the planning and implementation of the treatment plan is essential in attaining seccessful outcomes.
The HyOx team views each patient as an individual with unique needs, concerns and resources. HyOx staff members strive to acknowledge, understand and respond to those unique needs. We believe the greatest need of our patients is to achieve better health, healing and an optimal quality of life.
The HyOx team delivers hyperbaric oxygen treatments by administering 100 percent 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 in the chamber 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.
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 more than 5,000 hyperbaric oxygen therapy treatments annually.
HyOx is highly focused on the patient’s experience and making hyperbaric oxygen therapy a successful part of the patient’s total medical treatment plan. Patients should expect to receive:
- High quality care
- A clean and safe environment
- Supportive care for patients and their caregivers
- Privacy protection
- Discharge support
- Financial counseling and billing claim assistance
HyOx is committed to delivering the best hyperbaric and rehabilitative services that exceed the needs and expectations of our patients and referring physicians.
