Cellular Treatment for Lung Disease can be as Easy as a Blood Draw

When people hear the words cells, bone marrow and venous treatments, they may conjure up images of big machines, big needles and maybe an operating room.

On the contrary.

They should be thinking of a quiet room with a comfy, cushioned chair and a simple, minimally-invasive outpatient procedure that can be as easy as a blood draw.

No Pain, Yes Gain

The process is pretty quick and easy.

The cells and natural signaling factors are extracted (just like a blood draw), separated and then reintroduced back into the body while you are awake and sitting in a chair.

During a normal IV-like procedure, when the blood is put back, it quickly circulates throughout the body, but with our process, the cells conveniently get trapped in the lungs and the potential to arrest or slow down the progression of the disease can begin.

Blood-Derived Procedure

The venous treatment has shown to help many. There is a blood withdrawal and the cells and natural signaling factors are harvested, processed and separated, and they are returned into the body through an IV.

On day two the procedure is repeated.

Two easy treatments step by step, we:

  1. withdraw a blood.
  2. separate your cells and natural signaling factors from your blood.
  3. reintroduce the cells back into your body where they come to rest inside the lungs promoting both natural healing and inflammation reduction.

Since we use your own cells to treat and slow down the progression of COPD, side effects are nearly nonexistent.

Cellular therapy has demonstrated the potential to improve quality of life to those who may have otherwise given up hope.

The sooner you address these conditions, the sooner your COPD can be controlled.

This is not another drug.

It’s a treatment!

If you or a loved one suffers from a chronic disease like COPD, emphysema, pulmonary fibrosis or other symptoms of lung disease, the Lung Institute offers a variety of cellular treatment options.

The Lung Institute supports National COPD Awareness Month in November sponsored by the US COPD Coalition.

Nov. 15 is designated as World COPD Awareness Day.

* Every patient is given a Patient Satisfaction Survey shortly after treatment. Responses to the 11-question survey are aggregated to determine patient satisfaction with the delivery of treatment.

^ Quality of Life Survey data measured the patient’s self-assessed quality of life and measurable quality of improvement at three months of COPD patients.

All claims made regarding the efficacy of Lung Institute's treatments as they pertain to pulmonary conditions are based solely on anecdotal support collected by Lung Institute. Individual conditions, treatment and outcomes may vary and are not necessarily indicative of future results. Testimonial participation is voluntary. Lung Institute does not pay for or script patient testimonials.

As required by Texas state law, the Lung Institute Dallas Clinic has received Institutional Review Board (IRB) approval from MaGil IRB, now Chesapeake IRB, which is fully accredited by the Association for the Accreditation of Human Research Protection Program (AAHRPP), for research protocols and procedures. The Lung Institute has implemented these IRB approved standards at all of its clinics nationwide. Approval indicates that we follow rigorous standards for ethics, quality, and protections for human research.

Each patient is different. Results may vary.
