Is Bronchiectasis Curable?

Lung Graphic

There is no treatment that can cure bronchiectasis at this time. However, while researchers are still exploring potential cures, people who are living with the condition do have a variety of options for managing their symptoms. These include traditional treatments such as medications and supplemental oxygen to make breathing easier, antibiotics and vaccinations to prevent respiratory infections, physiotherapy and breathing exercises to help clear the airway, and pulmonary rehabilitation to help improve lung function. Some patients also consider alternative forms of bronchiectasis treatment, such as stem cell therapy, to further alleviate their symptoms.

While stem cell therapy is not capable of reversing existing damage, it does have the potential to help slow the progression of inflammation and chronic lung disease. People who undergo stem cell therapy as a form of bronchiectasis treatment may also experience a number of quality of life benefits, including:

  • An improvement in the severity and frequency of their symptoms
  • A reduced dependence on supplemental oxygen
  • Less difficulty working, exercising and participating in normal daily activities

At the Lung Institute, we proudly offer stem cell therapy for bronchiectasis treatment. We are the only stem cell center in the world to focus exclusively on the treatment of lung-related disorders, and our patients directly benefit from our unparalleled expertise. We offer two types of stem cell therapy (venous therapy and bone marrow therapy — both of which use a patient’s own stem cells) so that patients can receive the bronchiectasis treatment option that’s most appropriate for their needs.

For more information about bronchiectasis treatment and the benefits that stem cell therapy can provide, contact the Lung Institute at (800) 729-3065. We have a compassionate team of professionals that can help you determine if stem cell therapy is right for you.
