If you have a lung disease like chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) or interstitial lung disease, consider visiting Nashville and the Lung Institute for treatment.

Lung Institute Tennessee

The Lung Institute is a leading global provider of innovative regenerative medicine technologies for the treatment of an array of debilitating lung and pulmonary conditions. We are committed to an individualized patient-centric approach, which consistently provides the highest quality of care and produces positive outcomes. By applying modern-day best practices to the growing field of regenerative medicine, the Lung Institute is improving lives.

Stem Cell Treatment for Lung Disease

The Lung Institute utilizes autologous stem cells, derived from the patient’s own body for both the venous (blood-derived) and bone marrow stem cell procedures. During these procedures, stem cells are extracted, isolated and then immediately introduced back into the body where they then divide and replicate into healthy cells specialized to the damaged tissue. The use of autologous stem cells in transplantation is considered to be more reliable than stem cells from another individual as there is a much lower probability of rejection due to the fact that autologous stem cells are derived from the patient’s own body. Both bone marrow and venous stem cells have shown anti-inflammatory properties beneficial to patients with lung disease.

Autologous stem cells are derived from the patient’s own blood or bone marrow, are isolated, and are given back to the patient intravenously.
