Pneumoconiosis Treatment Guidelines Can Include a Variety of Therapies for Symptom Control

Pneumoconiosis treatment guidelines often include a combination of medications, supplemental oxygen and pulmonary rehabilitation to help alleviate the symptoms of the condition. People with pneumoconiosis may also be advised to maintain a healthy weight, stop smoking and/or avoid secondhand smoke and participate in regular exercise. Yearly flu vaccinations are also recommended to help reduce the likelihood of flu-related respiratory complications.

Another option that some people should consider is stem cell therapy, a treatment in which a patient’s own stem cells are removed from their blood or bone marrow and then reintroduced intravenously in a concentrated infusion. While not capable of curing pneumoconiosis, stem cell treatments have the potential to help slow the progression of the disease – something that many other therapies recommended by pneumoconiosis treatment guidelines cannot achieve. Stem cell therapies may also help reduce inflammation and promote the body’s natural healing process.

At the Lung Institute, we perform stem cell procedures for patients with lung diseases such as pneumoconiosis. Our treatments are offered on an outpatient basis over the course of two days, and patients can return to their lives without a long or complicated recovery process. Other beneficial factors of undergoing stem cell treatment at the Lung Institute include our:

  • Singular focus on pulmonary diseases – We are the only stem cell treatment center in the world to solely focus on conditions affecting the lungs.
  • Patient-centric follow-up care – Our physicians work hand-in-hand with our patients’ pulmonologists and primary care providers to ensure that all pneumoconiosis treatment guidelines are carefully followed, and that each patient receives comprehensive, streamlined care.
  • State-of-the-art treatment facilities – The Lung Institute has clean and comfortable clinics with several convenient locations across the United States.
