Regenerative Lung Medicine in Newport Beach, & Foothill Ranch, CA
Revolutionary Therapies for Your Improved Lung Function
Regenerative medicine is the cutting-edge practice of restoring the structure and function of damaged or diseased tissues and organs through the use of tissue engineering and stem cell therapies. For people with lung conditions like COPD, pulmonary fibrosis, cystic fibrosis, and lung cancer, regenerative lung medicine in Newport Beach and Foothill Ranch, CA, may be able to offer improved lung function.
Types of Regenerative Therapies
Recellularization of Decellularized Lungs
For people with end-stage lung disease, a lung transplant may be the only treatment option available. The procedure removes a diseased lung and replaces it with a healthy donor lung. The healthy donor lung has been decellularized by removing all the cells and leaving only the native architecture that can be recellularized with cells from your own tissues. This creates a personalized organ with your own genetics.
Stem Cell Engineering
Stem cells have natural anti-inflammatory properties and have been proven to repair damaged tissues and improve the quality of life in patients suffering from certain lung conditions like COPD, emphysema, and chronic bronchitis. Administered intravenously, stem cells find damaged tissue and go to work forming new, healthy tissue. Patients who have undergone stem cell therapy typically experience a reduction of inflammation in the airways and an improvement in lung function due to new tissue generation.
