Interstitial Lung Disease
Interstitial Lung Disease Treatment
Interstitial Lung Disease Treatment Available at the Lung Institute
Treatment for interstitial lung disease is available at the Lung Institute, the only stem cell therapy center in the world focusing exclusively on lung disease. We offer stem cell treatment options that are designed to potentially address the progression of this disease and help improve quality of life for patients living with a severe pulmonary condition.
Stem cells have the remarkable power to aid in healing, as they can regenerate and transform themselves to function as different types of tissue. The Lung Institute offers two types of autologous stem cell therapy: bone marrow therapy, where the stem cells are extracted from the patient’s bone marrow, and venous therapy, where stem cells are taken from the patient’s blood. Both procedures are minimally invasive and are performed on an outpatient basis over the course of two days.
We use the following three-step process when performing natural stem cell therapy:
- Harvest – We remove a small sample of the patient’s blood or bone marrow, depending on the type of stem cell procedure being performed.
- Separate – We separate the stem cells from the remaining cells in the patient’s sample in our in-house lab.
- Return – We intravenously return the concentrated stem cells into the patient’s bloodstream.
Although current treatments cannot reverse existing damage caused by the condition or cure lung disease, stem cell treatment may slow the progression of lung disease. Many people coping with interstitial lung disease who have undergone stem cell therapy at the Lung Institute have shown enhanced lung function and experienced improvement in their quality of life.
