Black Lung Disease in Pennsylvania
Pneumoconiosis, the medical term for black lung disease, is a form of interstitial lung disease (ILD). The lungs become visibly blackened by the inhalation of coal dust over long periods of time. The result is heavy scarring in the lungs including: damage to the walls of air sacs responsible for exchanging oxygen for carbon dioxide and an overall stiffening of the lungs, which reduces their ability to expand with air. The result is very poor lung function. Black lung disease is often caused from occupational hazards such as working in a coal mine. Unfortunately there are many cases of black lung disease in Pittsburgh.
Cellular Treatment Center in PA
Many lung disease sufferers have opted in for cellular therapy to improve their quality of life. While cellular therapy isn’t a cure for lung disease, it has improved many patients’ quality of life. The Lung Institute uses cellular therapy to improve lung function. Everyone has cells in their bodies that act as our body’s system to promote healing. Cellular therapy specifically targets damaged areas and accelerates the healing process. The Lung Institute uses a minimally invasive procedure that extracts cells from fat tissue, blood, and reintroduces them back into the body, targeting the damaged lung tissue. Cellular therapy has significantly improved many patients’ lives by allowing them to breathe easier and do the things that they enjoy in life.
