Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy Comes to Austin

By October 24, 2015Local

ATX Hyperbarics, Austin’s only stand-alone hyperbaric oxygen therapy clinic, opened September 15 in the Westlake Medical Center. Hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) is the medical use of oxygen in a pressurized environment. The therapy is non-invasive and increases oxygen levels to all organs of the body.

A typical HBOT treatment lasts 60 to 90 minutes, during which the patient sits or lies down and breathes normally. HBOT has been used to effectively treat dozens of medical conditions from concussions and compound fractures to burns. It can also speed cosmetic surgery recovery and provide athletic performance enhancement. After 20 hours of HBOT, a typical patient could see an increase of as much as 400 times their current number of stem cells in their body.

“Our mission is to provide a safe, clean environment for patients to experience all of the health benefits that oxygen under pressure can provide,” says Dr. Eleanor P. Womack, medical director of Westlake Medical Center. “We believe that the health-centric city that Austin has always been will embrace the use of oxygen therapy to gain a significant improvement in patient outcomes in health and recovery. My own recent success with this therapy has been transformative.”
