Specialty Surgeon Complete Packaged Procedure for Stem Cell Treatment for COPD in Mexico.
Our process uses adult stem cells, harvested from adipose tissue (fat). We’ve found that we get a much higher cell yield from adipose tissue, as compared to other sources of adult stem cells, and therefore can reach a therapeutic threshold without the need to culture cells. From a 120cc sample of bone marrow one can harvest anywhere from 7 to 14 million cells, while from the same amount of adipose tissue yields anywhere from 100 to 300 million cells.
Stem cells have the potential to develop into many different types of cells in the body. According to the latest clinical research, a patient’s own body fat is the most abundant source of stem cells. Medically known as adipose-derived stem and regenerative cells (ADRCs), these stem cells have been used safely and effectively in several thousand patients in rigorous clinical trials and other clinical settings. ADRCs have been found to ‘re-vascularize’ tissue that lacks blood flow.
Your stay will last 2 nights (discharge on the 3rd day). You would be admitted on the first day, and undergo studies that very day. On the second day the cosmetic surgeon performs a micro-liposuction in the operating theater. Two very small incisions in the abdomen area are made in order to harvest approximately ½ cup of fat. The adipose tissue is then processed in a sterile laboratory to harvest the cells and re-implant them in a manner appropriate for each disease.
For COPD patients, implantation is performed through a very slow drip IV solution that travels directly into your lungs. Due to a phenomenon called the first pass lung effect, whenever any substance is introduced into the body via IV infusion, the first place it travels to is through the lungs. By administering the stem cells in a slow drip infusion the majority of them will diffuse throughout the lungs to begin repairing damaged tissue and restore lung function. You would then stay overnight for observation and depart on the 3rd day.
Stem Cell Treatment for COPD cost includes the facility fee, physician’s fee, related medical procedures and drugs required to administer the plan of care. Not included are diagnostic studies, consultations with additional specialists and cost of complication management; travel, food and lodging.
