When it comes to treating such a serious disease as those that affect the lungs, you want to be sure you get the best care possible. The Lung Institute is a leading treatment center for those who are suffering from lung disease or a condition. Traditional treatments only help alleviate the symptoms but won’t stop the progression of the disease itself. That’s why The Lung Institute uses stem cell therapy to treat patients. According to the PR Web, stem cell therapy can alleviate most or all symptoms because it treats the source of those symptoms.
Stem cells are renewable cells meaning they can replicate the healthy neighboring cells and replace those that have been injured due to the disease. The Lung Institute uses stem cells from the patient’s own body to treat them otherwise known as autologous stem cell therapy. Stem cells can be harvested through blood venous or from bone marrow. Collecting the cells from the bloodstream is ideal for most patients. Extraction of the cells through bone marrow is sometimes the only option if a higher quantity of stem cells is required.
The harvested stem cells will then be sent through a filtration system that will extract and concentrate the cells from any other cells or fluids. Finally, the concentration of stem cells will then be injected back into the patient’s bloodstream. The stem cells reach the lungs as the heart pumps blood throughout the body. Here in the lungs, a pulmonary trap will form and the healing process can begin.
The Lung Institute treats many lung diseases and conditions such as:
- Pulmonary Fibrosis
- Interstitial Lung Disease
- Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease
- Chronic Bronchitis
Most patients can expect the entire process to take about 3 days. There are many Lung Institute clinics located throughout the United States from coast to coast. Regardless of location, all physicians are board certified, highly qualified and have years of experience treating lung conditions. To determine if stem cell therapy is right for you, contact one of the patient coordinators to schedule your free consultation.
