Stem Cell Therapy for COPD
At Regenesis Stem Cell Center, Dr. Charles Lee uses state-of-the-art bone marrow stem cell therapy to provide symptomatic improvement for chronic obstructive pulmonary disease or COPD. Our therapy has provided relief for COPD patients with chronic bronchitis, emphysema, or a combination of both. Stem cell therapy can reduce inflammation in the lungs, repair some damaged lung tissue, and help regenerate small blood vessels in the lungs, all of which can improve lung function. COPD is chronic, progressive, and incurable at this time, but cellular therapy may improve function and ease symptoms for some years. Our patients seek stem cell therapy for COPD at Regenesis because they want a safe, effective, non-invasive therapy that will help ease the painful symptoms of this debilitating disease.
Changes in the Lungs that Stem Cell Therapy for COPD Can Treat
If you have been diagnosed with COPD, your lungs may be undergoing changes from the disease that drastically affect your ability to take in the oxygen you need to live your everyday life. For COPD patients, the air sacs and airways in the lungs may lose their ability to stretch. The walls of the air sacs may even be destroyed, and the walls of the airways may thicken and become inflamed and mucus-clogged. The tiny blood vessels that exchange oxygen for carbon dioxide may even be damaged. Stem cell therapy may be able to improve the symptoms of COPD that restrict your ability to breathe comfortably.
Stem Cell Therapy at Regenesis May Improve Symptoms of COPD
At Regenesis, our stem cell therapies for COPD use the body’s natural healing processes, called regeneration, so the process is non-invasive and does not require surgery or anesthesia. Stem cell therapy is uniquely able to alleviate some symptoms of COPD. Initially formed at conception, your stem cells eventually give rise to all the cells in the body by differentiating into every type of cell, such as bone, tissue, nerves, organs, or fat. For stem cell therapy, where the goal is repair and regeneration, we use your entire bone marrow entourage of cells, including specific types of stem cells known as mesenchymal stem cells (MSC) and endothelial progenitor cells (EPCs). MSCs can divide into and repair various vital cells, including lung tissue and EPC, into blood vessels. These cells are readily available in reservoirs held in your own bone marrow. At Regenesis, we use your own live, healthy bone marrow and mesenchymal stem cells for our stem cell therapy for COPD.
Stem cell therapy boosts your body’s natural ability to repair and replace COPD-damaged cells. Stem cells can reduce inflammation in your lungs and airways and repair some lung tissue. Your live stem cells can also divide into the connective tissue and membrane that makes up the lining of the air sacs and tiny blood vessels – or capillaries – that transfer oxygen and carbon dioxide to and from the lungs into the circulatory system. With healthier air sacs and capillaries, your body will be better able to move oxygen quickly throughout your body when you inhale and remove carbon dioxide when you exhale. In addition to stem cells, our procedures at Regenesis include using platelet-rich plasma growth factors. Platelets release a flood of growth factors that stimulate healing in your body and signal stem cells to activate in damaged tissue, such as lungs inflamed and impaired by COPD.
What to Expect from Stem Cell Therapy for COPD at Regenesis
Conveniently, Dr. Lee will perform your stem cell therapy at the Regenesis Stem Cell Center in Huntsville, Alabama. You will not need to visit or stay at a hospital. Before moving ahead with your stem cell therapy, we develop your comprehensive procedure plan, which is unique to each patient and depends on the severity of your COPD symptoms.
If stem cell therapy is included in your procedure plan, on the day of your appointment at Regenesis, the first step is to prepare your own stem cells and platelet-rich plasma. Using a local anesthetic and oral or IV sedation, Dr. Lee will gently remove a sample of your bone marrow containing your stem cells. We concentrate and extract your stem cells from your bone marrow in our lab. You will receive a breathing treatment while you wait in the comfort of our clinic for about two hours. Next, Dr. Lee will administer the cellular therapies. Your live, healthy stem cells and platelet-rich plasma launch your body's natural healing and regenerative capacity, supercharged by the extra surge of your platelets’ growth factors and stem cells. You can expect to leave the clinic feeling about the same as when you arrived, so there is no rest or recuperation time at the clinic. Usually, your body takes about three to six months to improve maximally from the therapy, but symptomatic relief from reduced inflammation in your lungs may begin much sooner.
