Stem cells can have significant effects on lung diseases. Not only have patients seen improvement in symptoms, but measurements of lung function called Pulmonary Function Tests (PFT) have also been shown to improve. While patients with many lung diseases such as cystic fibrosis and scleroderma have seen improvement, asthma, COPD and pulmonary fibrosis are the best studied.

Cost of Stem Cell Treatments
The cost of the initial treatment ranges from $5,000 to $10,000. The range in cost is dependent on the complexity of delivering the cells back to you. For example, spine conditions require multiple physicians to deliver the cells back to your body and this requires an increase in cost as multiple doctors are involved in the procedure. For many people the initial treatment is all that is needed; however, for some conditions, subsequent treatments may be required and these are done at a reduced fee. Stem Cell Therapy procedures are performed at both our Dallas and Fort Worth locations.
