Cellular Therapy Can Help.
Cellular Therapy for Lung Disease
At the Lung Institute, we recognize that all patients have their own stories. While they have chronic lung conditions in common, our patients have had all kinds of careers and hobbies. Whether they enjoy growing plants in the garden, playing a round of golf or creating delicious meals, our patients are unique and deserve treatments unique to them.
At the Lung Institute, we screen each patient thoroughly, focusing on medical history and current condition to encourage only the best-possible treatment results.
The Lung Health Institute offers treatment plans depending on severity of the lung diseases.
Lung Treatment Overview
This therapy is purely Blood-Derived and minimally invasive. Follow-up treatments may need to be performed more often for optimal results.
The Cellular Therapy is performed in a clinical outpatient setting over the course of two days. After the Lung Institute’s medical staff has determined that a patient is a candidate for treatment, he or she will be asked to fill out all of the required paper work. A pulmonary function test will be performed, and the patient will go through a preparation process. Following the insertion of an IV, the blood cells are harvested, processed and separated and then immediately returned to the patient’s body intravenously where they may promote healing. This process is also repeated on day two of the patient’s treatment program. This minimally invasive procedure has proven to be a viable option for many patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). At the end of day two, the overseeing physician will do a thorough evaluation of the patient’s treatment and prep him or her for follow-up care.
The patient will receive follow up care at the two-week, three-month and six-month mark following his or her treatment. The patient is encouraged to return for a follow-up appointment with his or her pulmonologist at the three-month mark.
