Next time you’re interested in traveling for medical reasons, why not choose a place that can offer you a large number of attractions ranging from the country music capital of the world to historical Civil War memorials? 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.

Cellular Treatment for Lung Disease

The Lung Institute utilizes autologous cells, derived from the patient’s own body for both the venous (blood-derived) and bone marrow cell procedures. During these procedures, 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 cells in transplantation is considered to be more reliable than cells from another individual as there is a much lower probability of rejection due to the fact that autologous cells are derived from the patient’s own body. Both bone marrow and venous cells have shown anti-inflammatory properties beneficial to patients with lung disease.

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

If you or a loved one has a lung disease, consider learning more about treatment at the Lung Institute.  If you want to learn more about treatment options, please contact us or call 888-745-6697 today.

* Every patient is given a Patient Satisfaction Survey shortly after treatment. Responses to the 11-question survey are aggregated to determine patient satisfaction with the delivery of treatment.

^ Quality of Life Survey data measured the patient’s self-assessed quality of life and measurable quality of improvement at three months of COPD patients.
