Stem Cell Treatment Phoenix
Looking for Stem Cell Therapy in Phoenix
People that suffer from chronic lung disease are often looking for new, alternative treatment options for their disease. Given the progressive nature and the fact that most lung diseases have no cure, the standard treatment for the disease is often not satisfactory for patients. With symptoms that keep sufferers on constant supplemental oxygen or confined to their homes, it is no wonder patients are seeking options outside of waiting and watching their disease get worse. Stem cell therapy offers an option that many patients are seeking: a simple way to get their life back within reach.
Stem Cell Therapy Basics
Stem cells are the building blocks of life; they are essential to every living organism. They are able to self-renew and replicate—with the ability to form every type of tissue or organ in the body. Adult stem cells from one organ are able to create tissue for another organ; this is called plasticity. This is key to their function in regenerative medicine.
Stem Cell Treatment in Phoenix with the Lung Institute
The Lung Institute offers stem cell treatments for many of the major pulmonary conditions, including chronic obstructive pulmonary disorder (COPD), emphysema, chronic bronchitis, pulmonary fibrosis and interstitial lung disease. The stem cells used by the Lung Institute are autologous, which means they come from the patient’s own body. The stem cells are extracted from the patient’s own bone marrow or blood depending on the patient’s current condition and health history. Adult stem cells have the capacity to form many types of differentiated cells, so when the stem cells are returned to the patient, they will target the damaged tissue, which leads to improved lung function in patients with a chronic lung disease. Our minimally invasive, outpatient stem cell procedures are changing lives by helping patients breathe easier.
