New Year… New Ways to Treat Your Lung Disease
You have a lung disease and have been managing the symptoms for as long as you can remember. You know how much the coughing hurts, the feelings of constantly being exhausted and the constant struggle to just breathe normally. Your chronic lung disease IS taking a toll on how you live each vibrant day. Isn’t it about time that you stop managing your disease and start treating it?
You Have Options
Chronic conditions such as COPD, interstitial lung disease and pulmonary fibrosis cannot be cured, but the progression and symptoms of these conditions can be treated through the use of stem cell therapy. We know every patient is unique and no two conditions are identical. With this in mind, the treatments available at the Lung Institute are based on an individual’s specific needs, which ensures the best possible outcome. We have seen and shared stories from several of our patients that have benefited from stem cell treatment.
Today, the Lung Institute is using adult stem cells harvested from the patient’s own fat, blood or bone marrow to provide healing results for people with lung diseases. So far, we have treated well over 500 patients. Our physicians give the patients a growth factor that multiplies the stem cells into millions of healthy cells before extracting the stem cells from the patient, then they separate the cells and reintroduce them into the patient’s body. The result is that the healthy cells replace the damaged ones found in the lungs. Not only can this slow the progression of the disease, but it also works to restore lung function.
If the number of people who have already been successfully treated with stem cells is any indication of the future, then it will undoubtedly be heralded as one of the ground-breaking medical technologies of its time. If you or a loved one suffers from a chronic lung disease and wants to learn more about treatment options, contact us or call us at (800) 729-3065.
