Why Neubauer Hyperbaric Neurologic Center?

Unparalleled clinical experience

Having treated patients since 1972, Neubauer Hyperbaric Neurologic Center (NHNC) is a pioneer in the use of HBOT for neurological conditions. The results of founder Dr. Neubauer’s scientific studies (through the NHNC) have been published in a variety of respected medical journals, including:

The Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA)
American Family Physician
The Journal of Clinical Medicine
Journal of Hyperbaric Medicine
Journal of Neurosurgery
Physician & Sports Medicine

Physician-supervised HBOT therapies

Unlike many new HBOT facilities (which are operated only by technicians), all therapy at the Neubauer Hyperbaric Neurologic Center is delivered under the direct supervision of a medical doctor,  Dr Emilio Castañeda, Dr. George F. Daviglus and Dr Luis Rodas PA-C, who together represent over 15 years of experience practicing under Dr Neubauer. Utilizing a handpicked team of HBOT technicians, the Ocean Hyperbaric Neurologic Center provides patients and families with the confidence that only specially trained experts can, in a comfortable, family-oriented environment.

At the Neubauer Hyperbaric Neurologic Center, the physician is always available.


While HBOT is safe and effective when administered under the close supervision of trained physicians and technical personal, this is not the case when it is dispensed by un-certified technicians alone (as appears to be the case with numerous modern clinics). A myriad of technical and medical factors must be considered when designing an HBOT therapy program – factors that only specially trained and experienced hyperbaric medical team are qualified to address. While there are no regulations or laws preventing physician-less clinics from dispensing HBOT, the NHNC and other respected organizations are working to prevent this kind of sub-standard practice. A HBOT program is only safe / effective when administered and monitored by an experienced, well-functioning hyperbaric medical team. Careful and continuous patient evalutation is the cornerstone of quality therapy and is among NHNC’s foremost principles.

Fully trained / certified technicians

Therapy at NHNC is administered only by technicians fully certified in hyperbaric medicine by the National Board of Diving and Hyperbaric Medicial Technology (NBDHMT). Certified Hyperbaric Techologists (CHT’s) are required by the NBDHMT to attend accredited training courses and pass board examination along with completing a clinical internship prior to licensing. It is also manditory for CHT’s to hold prior medical / care providing licensure to qualify for and maintain the certification.

We guarentee that a CHT will ALWAYS be present during all therapies

Sadly, this is in stark contrast with many clinics, where HBO is often administered by those failing to meet the requirements of NBDHMT certification. It is not at all uncommon for those claiming profession as ‘Hyperbaric Technicians’ to have completed little more than a 40 hour prep course, backed up by no previous medicial experience. Once again, it is the responsibility of established hyperbaric medical centers such as NHNC to promote high standards through example.

Reasonable cost

Other facilities charge up to $2,250 per hour for physician-supervised HBOT. In contrast, the NHNC charges only $200 per hour, and each of our patients enjoys the individual environment afforded by our individual (monoplace) HBOT chambers. To assist our patients further, we offer discounted rates to those taking upward of 20 treatments.

Convenient location

The NHNC is located in Lauderdale-by-the-Sea, Florida, just north of Fort Lauderdale. We are conveniently accessible through either of the three airports serving the South Florida area: Miami International, Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International, and Palm Beach International.
