HBOT NFL TBI Recovery Testimonial Visger SF 49ers

HBOT TBI Recovery Testimonial of Former NFL Player
George Visger

November 26, 2012

 

George VisgerThough I was not treated personally at Dr. Harch's clinic, I owe him a debt of gratitude for his many years of dedicated work in treating traumatic brain injuries (TBI) with Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT).  I developed hydrocephalus [a buildup of fluid inside the skull that leads to brain swelling] and gran mal seizures which lead to an emergency Ventriculoperitoneal (VP) Shunting brain surgery while playing Defensive Tackle DT for the SF 49ers during the 1981 Super Bowl season.  Four months after our Super Bowl XVI victory my shunt failed and I survived 2 emergency brain surgeries 10 hours apart and was given last rites.  Four years later in 1986, I returned to school to complete my Biology degree.  During a 10-month period in 87, I survived 4 additional brain surgeries and several gran mal seizures while enrolled in Chemistry and Physics courses.  Due to the surgeries and seizures I developed severe short-term memory deficits and dyslexia, which added additional challenges to completing my degree.  

 

Post Concussion Syndrome Treatment with HBOT Mother-to-Mother Letter

A Mother-to-Mother Letter

By Eileen Geller RN

June 2012


Hi, I'm Eileen Geller, a Seattle-RN and mom of Nate, who is now 13 years old. I understand you have some questions about the potential use of hyperbaric oxygen therapy for your nephews, one of whom has lost his eyesight.  I am most happy to speak to you or to your sister or one of your other family members about Nate's experience.  Perhaps it might also be helpful for me to provide a brief written overview of Nate's experience so you can pass this on in advance of a phone call.  At 10 years old Nate received a brain injury playing lacrosse. He had some pretty severe after-effects, including physical debility, pain, balance, hearing, and cognitive function loss.  The most severe problem involved vision.  Nate's entire peripheral vision was knocked out by the injury—he had only an inch in front if each eye with mostly clear sight, the rest of his vision was totally opaque and spinning constantly.  They determined the hit had knocked out his brain's ability to determine visual vergence, among other problems.  For a year and a half we went to a slew of doctors, neurologists, ophthalmologists, optometrists, and other specialists.  Eventually we went to a physician my ophthalmologist neighbor and friend called "the god of eye doctors."  This fellow actually told Nate to his face that his vision would "never ever improve."
