Chronic obstructive pulmonary diseases (COPD) is progressive lung disease that slowly inhibits your ability to breathe clearly and can eventually cause respiratory failure. The disease has no cure, but there are treatments that help patients breathe better and improve quality of life. One such treatment is Lung Restoration Treatment™.

Lung Restoration Treatment™ is a treatment for lung diseases like COPD that uses your own blood cells to target infection. The sound of this may be off-putting but the procedure is more minimally-invasive than you might imagine.

In fact, it’s as simple as sitting in a comfortable chair while getting your blood drawn.

What happens during Lung Restoration Treatment™?

During your treatment, a small portion of your blood will be withdrawn and separated into concentrated forms of cells that will be used for the treatment. These concentrated cells are then reintroduced into your system to specifically target your lungs and reduce inflammation. The best part? You just have to sit there and relax while we take care of the rest.

Benefits of using your own blood to treat COPD

Some patients require more than one day of treatment but don’t worry. Each time the treatment is the same. You sit and relax and we process your blood so it becomes an effective inflammation fighting tool.

One major benefit of Lung Restoration Treatment™ is that it is virtually free of side-effects. Since the procedure uses only your own blood cells, your body doesn’t have to acclimate to any external source of treatment.

Furthermore, more than 80 percent of our thousands of patients report experiencing positive results from their Lung Restoration Treatment™. Some even notice their results within hours of treatment.

* Every patient is given a Patient Satisfaction Survey shortly after treatment. Responses to the 11-question survey are aggregated to determine patient satisfaction with the delivery of treatment.

^ Quality of Life Survey data measured the patient’s self-assessed quality of life and measurable quality of improvement at three months of COPD patients.
