Alan A. Katz, MD
Pioneering Advances in the Use and Acceptance of Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy and Regenerative Medicine
Innovative, Advanced Medicine
Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy
Dr. Katz is a seasoned medical practitioner with over 33 years of experience in his field. His patient roster includes esteemed professional athletes, celebrities, judges, dignitaries, and Hollywood actors and actresses. Some of the most reputable plastic surgeons seek out the expertise of Dr. Katz for his provision of hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) to their patients before and after surgery to promote optimal healing.
Dr. Katz has pioneered specialized protocols that create periods of paradoxical hypoxia. This innovative approach augments the physiological response and increases the production of hypoxia-inducible factor (HIF), which offers substantial benefits in improving desired outcome from HBOT.
Dr. Katz collaborates with practitioners and providers worldwide to utilize hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) and regenerative medicine for a wide range of conditions.

His expertise in this field has enabled him to develop innovative protocols, which he creates through close collaboration with top physicians around the world. By cultivating these one-on-one relationships, Dr. Katz has gained an exceptional understanding of the most effective HBOT techniques for various medical conditions. This extensive experience and knowledge allow Dr. Katz to provide the best possible care to his patients, delivering optimal results in their treatment and recovery.
Orthobiologics with Platelet Rich Plasma
Dr. Katz is a seasoned practitioner of Orthobiologics, having received training from Dr. Pradeep Albert, MD, DABR, one of the foremost authorities on Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) in the United States.

Dr. Katz's technique for PRP in Orthobiologics is unique in several ways. Firstly, there is no requirement for radiation during the injection process, as all injections are performed under ultrasound guidance. This eliminates the need for fluoroscopy or x-rays, making the procedure safer and more precise.

Dr. Katz often combines PRP with hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) to increase the number of circulating stem cells, which further improves the patient's outcome. By integrating these two modalities, Dr. Katz provides a unique and highly effective approach to Orthobiologics that achieves superior results for his patients.
