Traditionally, patients in Manhattan could only access HBOT at a few select hospitals for HBOT treatment to heal diabetic foot wounds, delayed radiation injury, bone infections (osteomyelitis), failed skin grafts, and other chronic ailments. Now these patients have a new conveniently located, comfortable, and more affordable option. As a free-standing, non-hospital based site, Hyperbaric Medical Solutions offers this innovative, non-invasive, state-of-the-art medical treatment at a fraction of the cost of its hospital counterparts, which is particularly important in an era of high deductibles and co-insurance, hospital copays, and cost sharing policies.
HBOT is simple: patients breathe pure oxygen at increased atmospheric pressure to dramatically enhance and expedite wound healing. Every cell in the body needs oxygen to preserve, repair, and enhance cellular function. HBOT powers these cells by increasing the oxygen carrying capacity of blood by at least 700% .
This is a very exciting time for us, to provide first of its kind access to hyperbaric oxygen therapy for the many who couldn't get into another program, didn't know HBOT was available to them, or couldn't afford their hospital copays or coinsurance. We understand what it takes for patients to be successful with HBOT and our caring and attentive staff create a welcoming and safe environment that our patients find very rewarding. Our staff, an easy to access office location, and an inviting private office environment make the patient experience like none other in HBOT. Thank you to all who have worked so hard to make this dream a reality.
We are also proud to feature Dr. David Gitlin as HMS-Manhattan's Director of Wound Care. As an expert in the field, with years of experience in hyperbaric oxygen therapy, Dr. Gitlin will care for a patient's wounds during their course of treatment and work collaboratively with each patients referring physicians to provide the best possible outcome in healing their wounds.
