Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy HBOT

Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy HBOT has been traditionally used in the United States for a narrow list of 13 typically reimbursed indications. However, in Russia, China, the Far East, the U.K., and Europe HBOT has been applied to a variety of neurological and non-neurological diagnoses since the 1970s. In the United States Dr. Harch has been applying HBOT to the typically reimbursed indications since 1986 and a wide range of neurological and other off-label conditions since 1989. In addition, he has performed research on HBOT in 50 or more neurological conditions.



Casey's story on the CBS Evening News with Katie Couric

Tomorrow night (Mon. 8/3/09) on the CBS Evening News with Katie Couric there will be a special piece on a veteran that has been followed by 60 Minutes and CBS since his injury 5 years ago in Iraq. He is a double amputee with a brain injury who recently underwent HBOT in New Orleans at our clinic for his TBI. Because of the severity of his injury he was not treated under the current LSU pilot trial that I am conducting. Instead, he became one of my private patients, received the exact same protocol as the study patients, and benefited accordingly. He was so moved by his experience that he called CBS to report the latest chapter in his recovery. I have not seen the final edited segment, but believe that it highlights his plight in the military medical system. I hope it is positive.
