Doctors treat COPD in Pennsylvania
Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) is a debilitating lung disease that makes breathing on one’s own extremely difficult. According to an article published by the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center, the number one cause of COPD is smoking. Other factors that might lead to COPD are secondhand smoke, air pollution, and being exposed to hazardous substances like dust and chemicals. Pittsburgh sees many cases of COPD as a direct result of occupational hazards. In July of 2015, however, Lung Institute doctors treat COPD in Pennsylvania.
Unfortunately many Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania residents suffer from COPD. When diagnosed with COPD, a person might feel overwhelmed or hopeless because, unfortunately, COPD cannot be cured. Things like medications, inhalers and oxygen therapy help lessen the symptoms of COPD. There is a relatively new stem cell treatment that has been very effective for many patients. The stem cell treatment is a minimally invasive procedure that harnesses the body’s own healing properties. The Lung Institute specializes in treating patients with debilitating lung disease with stem cell therapy.
Stem Cell Patient Testimonial
Many patients have had great results from stem cell therapy. Lung Institute patient, Gary W, talks about his experience with stem cell therapy. “I took care of myself all winter. I plowed my own driveway, but I always wore a mask, I don’t suck in the cold air. But regardless, I haven’t used oxygen in months. I have a portable oxygen unit that I had been using for a while, I can’t tell you long ago it’s been. But it has definitely made a difference. I’m very impressed and I recommend it to everybody.”
The Lung Institute is Coming to Pennsylvania
The Lung Institute has completed over 800 treatments in the past two years, and is expanding rapidly. They are looking forward to opening a new clinic in Pittsburgh in July 2015.
