Bronchiectasis Alternative Treatment

Stem Cell Therapy – An Alternative Treatment for Bronchiectasis

For those who are coping with the effects of bronchiectasis, the Lung Institute offers a promising alternative to traditional treatment: autologous stem cell therapy. Unlike antibiotic medications, mucus-thinning devices and supplemental oxygen, this groundbreaking option capitalizes on the power of a patient’s own stem cells, which can promote healing, improve lung function and ultimately enhance quality of life.

Through extensive research, the scientists and clinicians at the Lung institute have discovered that stem cells have the remarkable capacity to trigger the repair of damaged lung tissue. For this reason, stem cell treatment may be a good alternative for addressing the lung scarring that results from bronchiectasis and other chronic obstructive lung conditions.

The Lung Institute offers two main types of alternative treatment for bronchiectasis. Both stem cell procedures are minimally invasive and performed on an outpatient basis in our comfortable facility. We begin by taking a sample of a patient’s blood or bone marrow. Immediately afterward, we process the sample in our onsite lab to isolate the stem cells. After being reintroduced to the patient’s body intravenously, the highly concentrated stem cells can travel through the bloodstream to reach the lungs and jumpstart the healing process. Throughout the course of this natural treatment, the patient is overseen by our knowledgeable and compassionate staff.

The science of regenerative medicine continues to show extraordinary promise. Of course, in the practice of any type of medicine, standardized treatments are administered to unique individuals. Therefore, the results of stem cell therapy – and any other treatment – can vary. With that said, improvement is a constant process at the Lung Institute. We are continually developing and evaluating novel therapeutic approaches that can potentially help many people who are living with the damaging effects of long-term respiratory conditions. Many patients who receive stem cell therapy at the Lung Institute report experiencing a gradual improvement in their symptoms over time.

If you’ve been diagnosed with bronchiectasis, stem cell treatment may be an alternative for you. Contact us at (800) 729-3065 to discuss your options.
