Benefits from Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy
Hyperbarics is a safe FDA approved treatment that is already used in your local hospitals for non-healing wounds and other radiation injuries. Patients who require surgery are able to conduct the Marx Protocol where 20-30 sessions are completed pre-surgery and 10 sessions follow immediately after surgery to ensure the surgery takes. Recent studies show that HBOT plays a significant role in the healing of osteoradionecrosis patients of all 3 stages. Most patients starts seeing relief in as little as a week or two after starting treatment. Patients typically need between 30 - 90 sessions for complete resolution of symptoms.
