Lung Disease Treatment in Pennsylvania
Lung Disease in Pennsylvania
Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) is a debilitating lung disease that makes breathing on one’s own extremely difficult. According to an article published by the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center, the number one cause of COPD is smoking. Other factors that might lead to COPD are secondhand smoke, air pollution, and being exposed to hazardous substances like dust and chemicals.
Unfortunately many Pennsylvania residents suffer from COPD. When diagnosed with COPD, a person might feel overwhelmed or hopeless because, unfortunately, COPD cannot be cured. Things like medications, inhalers and oxygen therapy help lessen the symptoms of COPD. There is a relatively new cellular therapy that has been very effective for many patients. The cellular therapy is a minimally invasive procedure that harnesses the body’s own healing properties. The Lung Institute specializes in treating patients with debilitating lung disease with cellular therapy.
Cellular Treatment Center
While cellular therapy isn’t a cure for lung disease, it has improved many patients’ quality of life. The Lung Institute uses cellular therapy to improve lung function. Everyone has cells in their bodies that act as our body’s system to promote healing. Cellular therapy specifically targets damaged areas and accelerates the healing process. The Lung Institute uses a minimally invasive procedure that extracts cells from fat tissue, blood or bone marrow, and reintroduces them back into the body, targeting the damaged lung tissue. Cellular therapy has significantly improved many patients’ lives by allowing them to breathe easier and do the things that they enjoy in life.
