Has your doctor diagnosed you with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease? COPD is an umbrella term that incorporates many forms of lung disease, some of which include refractory asthma, chronic bronchitis, and emphysema. Ultimately, COPD affects breathing capabilities, which in turn can signififcantly impact quality of life. With the latest developments in regenerative medicine, prescription medication and surgery aren’t the forms of treatment for COPD. Stem cell therapy offers a natural, minimally invasive form of treatment that can address COPD and help you achieve a greater peace of mind in your everyday life.

Signs and Symptoms of COPD
Experiencing shortness of breath or frequent coughing have been associated with natural aging, however, they may be potentials signs of COPD. It’s very important to discuss with your primary care doctor any new symptoms you experience to get a proper diagnose and search for a solution. While signs of COPD vary from person to person, some of the most common include:
- Moderate to severe shortness of breath
- Frequent coughing
- Tightness in the chest
Stem Cell Therapy for COPD
Over time with COPD, the lungs become more and more damaged, enlarging the sacs inside–known as alveoli– which causes tissue to break down, creating that shortness of breath. Stem cells are highly unique in that they can replicate the capabilities of neighboring cells to repair and restore the body. When reintroduced into the targeted area, stem cells are able to replicate the properties of alveolar cells and restore lung health.
Stem Cell Therapy for COPD: What to Expect
During your appointment, Dr. Lebowitz carefully extracts stem cells through fatty tissue through a process known as lipoaspiration. The stem cells are then reintroduced into the lungs through minimally invasive means, minimizing downtime compared to that of a more invasive surgery. Once the stem cells are administered into the lungs, they begin replicating properties of neighboring cells to restore tissue on a cellular foundation. While one treatment may grant an improvement, it can take an optimal treatment plan of several sessions in order to experience significant results.
Candidates for Stem Cell Therapy for COPD
Since this treatment utilizes stem cells gathered from your own body during your appointment, it serves as a more natural, minimally invasive alternative treatment to surgery. During your consultation, Dr. Lebowitz will review certain aspects of your medical history and help you determine if stem cells for COPD may be ideal for you.
