Laurie Gesell, M.D.,Director of the Division of Hyperbaric Medicine in the University of Cincinnati's Department of Emergency Medicine, has pioneered a way of treating these patients with hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT).
...
With funding from the NIH, Dr. Gesell and her team of researchers at the University of Cincinnati (UC) and The Neuroscience Institute set up the Brain Radionecrosis Center to study not only how well hyperbaric oxygen therapy works, but also the mechanism that enables it to work.If the treatment proves to be as effective as preliminary findings indicate, the team expects to expand its study into a multi-center trial that ultimately could lead to the establishment of hyperbaric oxygen therapy as the main treatment for patients with brain radionecrosis."We have been treating patients with brain radionecrosis for over five years, and it appears to be working," Dr.Gesell said."We think the increased oxygen at pressure promotes the growth of new blood vessels into the injured tissue, helping the healing process.We have designed this study to compare how well hyperbaric oxygen therapy works compared to usual medications, and to find out whether the treatment really is making these new blood vessels grow.If we can show that hyperbaric oxygen therapy is better than medications, and if we can understand how it works, we'll be able to help thousands of patients every year who get radiation therapy for brain tumors."In addition to being the region's only board-certified hyperbaricist, Dr. Gesell is an emergency medicine physician.

Dr. Gesell received her undergraduate degree from Skidmore College, her medical degree from University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey, New Jersey Medical School, and her residency at the University of Cincinnati Medical Center, where she was Chief Resident her senior year.She also did a fellowship in toxicology and Hyperbaric Medicine at the University of Cincinnati Medical Center.Dr. Gesell joined the faculty in the Department of Emergency Medicine after completing her residency, service as chief resident, and fellowship in Toxicology and Hyperbaric Medicine at the University of Cincinnati Medical Center.Since then, she has continued to pursue her interests in both Toxicology and Hyperbaric Medicine, while also performing research and teaching.
Dr. Gesell is the Medical Director for the Center for Hyperbaric Medicine.The Center treats carbon monoxide poisonings, SCUBA diving injuries and many different medical conditions.During her tenure as Director, innumerable changes have been implemented at the Center.As a result of these refinements, patient volume has more than doubled, and patient care has evolved significantly.Dr. Gesell is a regular participant in National Hyperbaric Medicine symposia, which allows her to bring leading edge treatment to the Cincinnati area.The Center for Hyperbaric Medicine may be contacted at 513-558-4262.
Dr. Gesell is also one of the Toxicology and Toxinology (natural toxin) consultants for the Cincinnati Drug and Poison Information Center.In this role, she provides treatment information to physicians throughout the region regarding poisonings and exposures to toxic materials.
Beyond the clinical instruction of residents in Emergency Medicine, Dr. Gesell is also actively involved with teaching resident rotators who participate in the Department's Toxicology elective, as well as lecturing throughout the University.Residents in the Department's Toxicology elective also evaluate and care for hyperbaric patients under Dr. Gesell's tutelage.Through this exposure and complementary lectures, the residents develop a strong foundation in the fundamentals of hyperbaric oxygen therapy, in addition to the other topics of toxicology.
Dr. Gesell continues to actively participate in research.She has presented at regional national, and international conferences.She has numerous clinical studies presently underway.In the past, her central research focus has been Toxicology.While her research in Toxicology continues, topics in Hyperbaric Medicine now receive priority.One notable ongoing project is working to develop a totally new antimicrobial medicine (similar to an antibiotic) that utilizes a natural protein from the wild Komodo Dragon monitor lizard of Indonesia as a model or template.Look for Dr. Gesell in "To Capture a Dragon" a 1998 documentary which follows tow expeditions to Indonesia to acquire specimens from wild Komodo Dragons, and the research journey one takes to develop a new medication.
