Stop the Progression of COPD

If you have been diagnosed with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), then no one needs to tell you about the troubles of breathing. You have to work for every breath; an action that most people do involuntarily, you need to work hard to achieve. COPD causes a long list of symptoms outside of shortness of breath, you can also experiences excessive coughing, wheezing, upper respiratory infections, pneumonia and bronchitis to name just a few. Unfortunately, if untreated, the disease will progress quickly, especially if you continue to smoke cigarettes. Eventually, people see their lung functioning drop to below 80 percent and need to live with supplemental oxygen.

COPD Treatments with Cells

With COPD and other pulmonary conditions, the Lung Institute uses autologous cells from the patient’s own peripheral blood and/or bone marrow tissue. Treatments for many of the major pulmonary conditions including COPD, emphysemachronic bronchitispulmonary fibrosis and interstitial lung disease are performed at the Lung Institute.  Our minimally invasive, outpatient stem cell procedures are helping patients breathe easier and changing lives.

Adult cells from one organ are capable of forming tissue for another organ, which is called plasticity. Cells derived from blood or bone marrow have the capacity to form many types of differentiated cells. It has been found that adult cells are capable of being transferred into any one single organ of the body.

Cellular treatment involves isolating adult cells from bone marrow and blood, which requires special laboratory techniques to collect them and expand their numbers in culture. These procedures should be performed in a clinical setting under the supervision of a trained professional.

How Are Patients Feeling?

Harold has been suffering from the effects of COPD and emphysema. Harold’s COPD symptoms were so severe he had trouble doing just about anything, even taking a shower. He felt as though there was no end to the downhill stroll. Every month following his cellular therapy, Harold felt better and better to the point where he now walks a mile every day. In addition, you can find Harold riding his motorcycle and flying his remote-control planes

Of course, if you are a doctor or patient suffering from COPD, then cellular therapy could be for you! If you would like to find out more about our available treatment options, please contact one of our patient care coordinators today at (800) 729-3065 to schedule a free consultation.
