Overview

Duke’s board-certified hyperbaric medicine specialists use hyperbaric oxygen therapy -- breathing 100% oxygen at increased atmospheric pressure inside a pressurized chamber -- to treat wounds, infections, scuba diving and altitude injuries, smoke inhalation, and a range of other conditions. We operate one of the nation’s largest hyperbaric chambers, and our goal is to develop a treatment plan that helps you recover quickly.

Emergency Care
We offer quick access to hyperbaric oxygen therapy to people in relevant emergency situations. If you are an existing patient experiencing an emergency, please call 919-684-8111 and ask for the hyperbaric physician on call.

Comprehensive Evaluation and Treatment
We conduct a thorough evaluation to determine if hyperbaric oxygen therapy is an appropriate option for your care, then work with you and your doctors to develop an effective treatment plan. Typical treatment plans begin with twice-daily, 2.5-hour sessions. During this time, you can sit, relax and enjoy a favorite pastime. The number of treatments vary from 20 to 60, depending on your condition and needs.

    Why Choose Duke

    Hyperbaric Medicine Specialist Onsite During Treatment
    Every time you receive care in our hyperbaric oxygen facility, a board-certified hyperbaric medicine specialist is onsite for the duration of your treatment. This ensures you receive consistent, thorough monitoring and expert attention if there is a problem. 

    Comfortable Environment
    Unlike other chambers that require you to lie down for hours during treatment, our spacious multi-room chamber provides ample room for you to sit comfortably during.

    Convenient, Comprehensive Care
    Your team of experts may work side-by-side in the chamber to ensure you receive the full spectrum of care, from managing your pain to evaluating and changing wound dressings. In addition to hyperbaric medicine specialists, your team may include anesthesiologists, emergency medicine doctors, pulmonologists, nurses, and chamber technicians.

    Experienced Physicians
    Our hyperbaric facility was the nation’s first, and it remains the largest hyperbaric chamber in the country. In addition, ours is the only facility in the mid-Atlantic region whose physicians are all board-certified in hyperbaric medicine, meaning they have passed tests to ensure they have met specific requirements.

    Research Leaders
    Our ongoing research examines the effects of hyperbaric oxygen on various conditions. This ensures you receive the most effective treatment available for your needs.
