The Lung Institute Offers Alternative Chronic Bronchitis Treatment Options

Viable alternative treatment options for chronic bronchitis include stem cell therapy procedures available at the Lung Institute. As the only stem cell clinic in the world that focuses solely on the treatment of lung conditions, we have an exceptional understanding of pulmonary care and the many facets of treating various forms of lung disease, including chronic bronchitis. Unlike many traditional forms of treatment like oxygen therapy and medication that work to simply mitigate symptoms, stem cell therapy has been shown to potentially slow the progression of lung disease and improve the patient’s quality of life in certain cases. While stem cell therapy cannot reverse or cure lung disease, it can possibly reduce lung inflammation and improve lung function.

The Lung Institute offers two different forms of stem cell therapy:

  • Venous (blood-derived) stem cell therapy – This form of stem cell therapy involves drawing blood from the patient’s own body, separating the stem cells from the other cells in our onsite lab and then immediately reintroducing the separated cells into the patient’s body intravenously.
  • Bone marrow stem cell therapy – During this procedure, a small amount of bone marrow fluid is removed from the patient’s body. The stem cells are separated from the other cells in our onsite lab and are then intravenously reintroduced into the patient’s body.

Each patient’s ideal course of treatment depends on his or her individual diagnosis and medical history, among many other factors. A dedicated Lung Institute team member works with each patient to determine which form of stem cell therapy is ideal for his or her specific situation. Both procedures are performed in one of our bright and modern outpatient facilities over the course of two days, and most patients are able to return to their daily activities immediately following the procedure.
