Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is one of the most common lung diseases. It makes it difficult to breathe. There are two main forms of COPD: chronic bronchitis, which involves a long-term cough with mucus, and emphysema, which involves destruction of the lungs over time. Most people with COPD have a combination of both conditions. Smoking is the leading cause of COPD. Treating COPD includes the use of bronchodilator inhalers, steroids, and supplemental oxygen.
Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) – Gulf Coast Stem Cell & Regenerative Medicine Center
Research has been ongoing around the world that exploits the anti-inflammatory and immuno-modulatory properties of adult stem cells to control the loss of elasticity and damage in the small airways seen in patients with COPD. Gulf Coast Stem Cell & Regenerative Medicine Center(GCSC&RMC) is investigating the effects of SVF (rich in mesenchymal stem cells and growth factors) on airway healing. Our Cell Surgical Network(CSN) has developed a COPD protocol that includes a combination of intravenous and nebulized SVF delivery. The deployment protocol performed under local anesthesia is all done as an outpatient at the time of SVF harvesting and procurement. The entire cellular surgical procedure takes approximately 3 hours.
We care about our Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) patients at GCSC&RMC and take pride in the time we provide to our patients to deploy the best protocols to help our patients achieve their goals. By filling out the contact form to the right, we will answer the questions and concerns you may have about GCSC&RMC protocols for Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD).
