As one of the most comprehensive programs in the nation, Penn Medicine is a leader in advancing hyperbaric oxygen therapy research and treatment.
With more than 35 years of research-based experience, our hyperbaric medicine clinical team has the knowledge and expertise to treat the full spectrum of emergency conditions and chronic illnesses.
The hyperbaric medicine division was established in 1968 by Christian J. Lambertsen, one of the primary inventors of SCUBA and the "Father of the US Navy Frogmen." This collaborative effort between the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania and the Perelman School of Medicine provides patients access to one of the most comprehensive hyperbaric oxygen therapy programs in the country.
The University of Pennsylvania also offers a Diving and Hyperbaric Medicine Fellowship.
