Director of Hyperbaric Medicine for East Cooper Medical Center, Dr. Brittain is also a managing partner for a local emergency medicine specialty group.
Born and raised in Kentucky, he graduated from University of Kentucky and earned his medical degree from Rush Medical University in Illinois.
Drawn back to the south by a deep desire to raise his children in the life he so enjoyed, he completed his residency in emergency medicine at University of South Carolina. During his residency, his exposure to and interest in hyperbaric medicine combined with his lifelong interest in pediatric burn victims.
He and his partner Tim Osbon, MD, opened Oasis Hyperbarics. After developing this practice model for several years, they joined East Cooper Medical Center in combining a robust wound care program with an expanding hyperbaric patient network.
Dr. Brittain says, “When my schedule allows I enjoy spending time with my wife and children traveling throughout the U.S. In addition, my wife and I actively train and compete in many regional cycling events and sporting activities. In the near future, I hope to once again become active in mission work through my church as this was a very gratifying experience early in my career.”
