Ulcerative Colitis and HBOT
A local gastroenterologist sent me a 28 year old patient who has ulcerative colitis. He has failed standard care since last July. I have never treated anyone with ulcerative colitis. I have read the article by Buchman and Fife in the Journal of Clincial Gastroenterology from October 2001. The next step for this patient is colectomy in a 28 year old man because of the severe pain and bleeding. This patient is located in Troy, New York. Anyone have luck with getting insurance companies to cover this indication?
