Amir Hadanny, MD, Chief Medical Research Officer of The Sagol Center for Hyperbaric Medicine and Research, to discuss innovative approaches to aging treatment
TEL AVIV, Israel, Feb. 6, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- The Sagol Center for Hyperbaric Medicine and Research at Shamir Medical Center, one of the largest hyperbaric medical centers in the world, today announced that its Chief Medical Research Officer, Amir Hadanny, MD, will participate on a panel discussion at this year's Synapse Summit, entitled, Aging Gracefully: Innovations Improving Life for Millions of Seniors.
The panel, sponsored by the University of South Florida, will discuss new approaches for treating the growing aging population. By the year 2030, all baby boomers will be older than age 65. In 2020, Floridians over the age of 60 will account for more than 25 percent of Florida's population. Dr. Hadanny will discuss the age-related mechanisms for cognitive and physical decline and present new approaches for healthy aging based on ongoing research programs at the Sagol Center. He will discuss the utilization of hyperbaric oxygen therapy and its potential for significant cognitive and physical performance improvements.
"Our technology focuses on improving the aging process through the application of hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) combined with personalized cognitive and physical training programs," said Dr. Hadanny. "I'm looking forward to discussing our latest research in the fields of aging, neuroscience, physiology and hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) for the enhancement of cognitive skills, physical performance, increased energy, and enhanced quality of life in healthy aging adults."
Dr. Hadanny is a certified neurosurgeon and hyperbaric physician. He has been researching the impact of HBOT and novel approaches to neurorehabilitation, neuroplasticity and physiology together with Professor Shai Efrati, for over a decade. He has published more than 25 research papers focusing on the effects of HBOT on cognitive and physical performance, with a specific focus on healthy aging adults. Dr. Hadanny earned his MD degree from Tel Aviv University and is finalizing his PhD in Bioinformatics and Machine Learning at Bar Ilan University.
