Pre and Post Surgery

Pre and Post Surgery

Surgical procedures are on the rise globally, and despite the advancements in peri-operative care, up to 50% of elective surgical patients will experience post-operative complications, including surgical site infections. Research suggests that one major cause for postoperative complications is the surgical stress response. Postoperative complications result in an increased risk of re-operation, increased length of stay, decline in quality of life, morbidity, and mortality. Postoperative swelling causes compression around blood vessels and nerves which affects the healing process and can result in pain and discomfort. Prevention of these post-surgical complications is vital.

Key factors with Surgery

Surgical stress response:

  • Increased demands on patients’ hormonal, metabolic, and immunological systems
  • Systemic inflammation
  • Neuroendocrine and metabolic dysregulation

Complications after Surgery

  • Impaired immune function
  • Impaired wound healing
  • Increased oxidative stress
  • Infection
  • Swelling

Our Approach to Pre and Post Surgery

Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT)

Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy decreases inflammation, oxygenates the entire body, stimulates the growth of new healthy blood vessels, and releases stem cells, up to 800% more after 20 sessions! HBOT also promotes the osteogenic process, has a bacteriostatic and bactericidal effect, improves neovascularization and postischemic tissue survival, and leads to production of antioxidant enzymes. Preventing or reducing the inflammatory stress response caused by surgical procedures has been shown by research to be effective in improved patient outcomes. Treating with HBOT before surgery stimulates protective mechanisms in the body and helps prepare the body for a better surgical outcome. Treating with HBOT after surgery effectively reduces post operative swelling and improve healing and recovery.
