The Vascular & Hyperbaric Unit offers a range of services in the field of hyperbaric medicine, vascular surgery, vascular investigations and wound care in a facility that exceeds national and international standards and guidelines. The Unit aims to treat patients according to the highest ethical, scientific and safety standards, while maintaining their dignity in a friendly, comfortable atmosphere. Treatment is done under the supervision of a Hyperbaric Physician (Dr Gregory Weir) and a Hyperbaric Operator (Mr Dirk Knoetze) who are both appropriately trained and qualified in hyperbaric medicine. They are immediately available throughout the administration of hyperbaric oxygen therapy in a facility that is located inside a hospital and adjacent to a Level 1 Trauma Unit.
Dr Gregory Weir is a registered and certified Vascular Surgeon. After completing his pre-graduate medical studies and specialising in General Surgery, he sub-specialised and completed the South African College of Medicine's exams in Vascular Surgery. His interest in treating patients with complex wounds, contributed to formal training in advanced wound care (International Interdisciplinary Wound Care Course, University of Stellenbosch) and formal training in hyperbaric medicine (Diving & Hyperbaric Medical Staff Training Course).
The purpose of this web site is to offer Dr Weir’s patients and their families access to information regarding hyperbaric oxygen therapy in general as well as specific information on certain disease processes that are treated using this modality.
