The Advanced Medicine’s Institutional Review Board has given Eterna MD Medical Rejuvenation Center in Lake Mary, Florida, the approval to use Autologous Adipose-derived stem cells for the treatment of patients with Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD), and for the treatment of Erectile Dysfunction (ED). This exciting news has come on the helm of Dr. Carlos Mercado’s hard work to treat these particular conditions in Orlando, with his advancements unmatched by any other practice in the area.
“We are thrilled to now be offering these particular treatments with our new stem cell treatment derived from fat cells,” said Dr. Carlos Mercado. “We have seen success treating several types of joint degeneration, and we want to continue on that track.”
COPD refers to a group of progressive lung diseases that can cause chest tightness, shortness of breath (respiratory difficulty), wheezing, and other symptoms. It is estimated that this disease affects 65 million people worldwide, according to the World Health Organization.
COPD is considered a major cause of disability and the third leading cause of death in the United States. This condition is most likely to affect people aged 65-74 years, current or former smokers, and patients with history of asthma. Treatments for this disease include medications, smoking cessation, lung therapy, and surgery (lung volume reduction and lung transplant). Tobacco smoking, exposure to fumes in the workplace or home, and episodes of respiratory infections are considered key factors of the development and progression of COPD. The former factors cause inflammation of the respiratory tract which can lead to the beginning of the symptoms. Recent studies have shown that the stem cells have anti-inflammatory effects, giving the Stem Cell therapy potential for the improvement of the pulmonary function of COPD patients.
ED is a condition which causes a man to be unable to sustain penile erection throughout sexual intercourse. It affects around 18 million men in the US, increasing its prevalence with age and risk factors such as cardiovascular disease, hypertension and diabetes.
Erectile Dysfunction can lead to stress, loss of self-confidence, and relationship problems. Treatments include oral medications and surgical options. Although these treatments are very effective, they are not able to re-establish functionality in all patients. Medical researchers consider Erectile Dysfunction to be a result of a neurogenic condition and smooth muscle or endothelial dysfunction. For that reason, the Stem Cell therapy has the potential of reestablishing functionality by regenerating the tissues directly involved with penile erection.
Eterna MD is now accepting consultations for this treatment at their Lake Mary office, located off of International Parkway. The consultations are $100, in which Dr. Mercado will assess each patient’s unique situation and generate a customized treatment plan.
