Dr. Olayinka David Ajayi has joined the Essentia Health team in Fargo and specializes in hyperbaric medicine. Hyperbaric oxygen therapy is a noninvasive, painless procedure that uses 100% oxygen in a pressurized chamber to improve the body’s natural healing process, treat carbon monoxide poisoning and other FDA/UHMS approved medical conditions.  

“I  chose hyperbaric medicine because it is an emerging field of medicine that allows me to provide care across different clinical settings, spurs me to undergo clinical research and since it’s an emerging field, there’s always something new to learn,” explains Dr. Ajayi.

Dr. Ajayi received his medical education at the University of Ibadan College of Medicine, Nigeria. He earned his master’s degree in public health and completed a residency in public medicine at Emory University Public Health, Atlanta, Ga. His fellowship in undersea and hyperbaric medicine was completed at Hennepin Healthcare in Minneapolis, Minn. Dr. Ajayi is board certified by the American Board of Medical Specialties in public health and general preventative medicine. 

“I will actively listen to my patients, work together with them and create a workable treatment plan,” shares Dr. Ajayi. “My patients can expect me to be their advocate during the course of their treatment.”
