Stem cells are the body's natural way of healing. When you are sick or injured, stem cells travel through the body to the site that needs repair.
But, the stem cells the body provides don't work fast enough to remedy a chronic progressive disease like chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). Stem cell therapy introduces additional stem cells to battle the disease by rebuilding healthy cells in the affected area.
New developments in stem cell therapy indicate that the lung cells may be rebuilt, treating the cause of the chronic progressive disease.
Dr. Jack Coleman joins Dr. Mike to discuss how stem cell therapy can help combat lung disease.
Stem Cell Therapy Takes on Lung Disease
Featured Speaker:Jack Coleman, Jr., MD is the medical director of the Lung Institute in Nashville, TN, where he oversees the medical staff in the treatment of people with lung diseases using stem cell therapy. He earned his medical degree from the University of Cincinnati. He also served as a Lieutenant Commander and Commander in the United States Naval Reserve. An insatiable learner, outside of work Dr. Coleman likes to learn and create. For Dr. Coleman, any opportunity to create something original or expand his horizons is time well spent.
