Treating Lung Disease in Tampa

Tampa is home to many progressive medical companies. One such medical treatment facility, the Lung Institute, is leading the new field of adult stem cell therapies for chronic lung disease.

Adult Stem Cell Treatment

Adult stem cells can be utilized in any organ in the body since stem cells are able to mimic any differentiated cell. Since they are capable of self-renewing, they can divide many times and can specialize to promote the healing of organs, such as lungs, while still sustaining the original cell.

The Lung Institute uses only adult, autologous stem cells to treat people with chronic lung diseases. This means the stem cells are extracted from a patient’s body and then returned into the same patient.

Stem Cell Therapy for Lung Disease

Lung diseases like chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), chronic bronchitisemphysema, interstitial lung disease and pulmonary fibrosis can be treated with stem cells. The stem cells used at the Lung Institute are autologous and can be found in bone marrow and blood. Stem cells have the ability to self-renew and replicate, and are capable of forming any type of tissue or organ in the body.

Venous Stem Cell Treatment – Some patients may undergo a venous stem cell treatment. This purely blood-derived treatment is a minimally invasive, outpatient procedure.

Bone Marrow Treatment – Some patients may undergo the bone marrow treatment. This minimally invasive, outpatient treatment is a hybrid treatment, combining the venous treatment with a small bone marrow aspiration. The stem cells from both blood and bone marrow are used.
