Siderosis Treatment Provided by the Lung Institute
Treatment for siderosis and related conditions is offered at the Lung Institute, where we exclusively treat lung disease using innovative stem cell therapy. Siderosis, which is a type of interstitial lung disease, develops when iron particles are inhaled and deposited deep within the lungs. This condition is sometimes referred to as a benign form of pneumoconiosis, as it rarely causes symptoms like coughing and shortness of breath. Despite its lack of direct symptoms, however, siderosis can lead to other conditions that produce their own symptoms (including pneumonia and lung infections), which may require treatment.
The Lung Institute is proud to offer stem cell therapy for symptoms of the conditions related to siderosis. Our stem cell treatment procedures for siderosis can be performed using the following two methods, each of which offers certain advantages:
- Bone marrow therapy — We remove stem cells from a patient’s bone marrow, which has been found to contain more adult stem cells than peripheral blood.
- Venous therapy — We extract stem cells from a patient’s blood using a collection process that is less invasive than that used during bone marrow procedure.
When providing treatment using stem cells, we begin by removing a small sample of a patient’s blood or bone marrow. We then separate the stem cells from the sample. Finally, we return the concentrated stem cells to the patient’s blood through an intravenous infusion. Both of these siderosis stem cell treatment methods are performed in a clinical setting at one of our state-of-the-art facilities on an outpatient basis over the course of two days.
