COPD in Dallas
The phrase “it’s always bigger in Texas” isn’t exclusive for describing the state’s culture and pride, it also fitting for its air pollution problems. In the American Lung Association’s 2015 State of Air report, Dallas County received an “F” grade in Ozone quality and the Dallas-Fort Worth metroplex was ranked the seventh most polluted city in America. In 2011, the CDC reported that about 5.4 percent of Texas residents were told they have COPD by their healthcare professionals.
What is Stem Cell Therapy for COPD?
Stem cell treatments at the Lung Institute have proven to improve the functionality of lungs affected by chronic lung disease. Because stem cells can promote the healing of tissue, they have shown their versatility in the medical field. After the clinician administers natural growth factors to increase the number of stem cells, the patient’s personalized treatment can begin.
Depending on the therapy recommended, the cells are then harvested from the patient’s blood or bone marrow. The stem cells are separated by a professional, and then the stem cells are returned to the patient intravenously. Now, the stem cells can begin to promote the healing of the lung tissue, so patients can breathe easier and bring their lives within reach.
