Individuals With Bronchiectasis May Benefit From an Alternative Therapy – Cellular Treatment
Cellular therapy is a breakthrough alternative for many individuals with bronchiectasis. This innovative treatment is available at the Lung Institute, the only cellular therapy center in the world that focuses exclusively on treating chronic obstructive lung conditions. While cellular therapy is not curative, it can potentially halt the progression of bronchiectasis, improve lung function and enhance quality of life.
This means that cells can potentially serve as a healing mechanism and replicate healthy lung tissue that has been lost through damage, such as the scarring that occurs as a result of bronchiectasis.
At the Lung Institute, we offer blood-based cellular therapy as an alternative treatment for bronchiectasis. In accordance with our treatment guidelines, these minimally invasive procedures are performed on an outpatient basis over the course of two days. In general, cellular therapy involves three main steps:
- Harvesting cells from a patient’s blood
- Isolating the cells in our in-house lab
- Reintroducing the concentrated cells into the patient’s bloodstream via intravenous infusions
The Lung Institute upholds the highest level of medical standards and quality with a full compliance team overseeing all operations. Our clean, bright and modern facilities are staffed by a dedicated team of compassionate professionals who work hard to ensure an exceptional, concierge-like patient experience.
