Hyperbaric Medicine Quick Facts

  • Depending on the condition, patients may need between 20 to 40 treatments, usually every day for several weeks. The time in the pressurized chamber usually lasts about two hours.

  • You'll be treated by our highly specialized and experienced staff, trained in hyperbaric oxygen therapy.

  • Most treatments are on an outpatient basis. We're located in the basement of the Prince Tower at Piedmont Athens Regional Medical Center. We work with patients on an inpatient and outpatient basis, by physician referral. Clinic hours are 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday.

  • The conditions we treat are recognized by Medicare and most commercial insurance providers. Because the number of treatments can vary widely, we work with insurance companies to preauthorize treatments.
