Local Stem Cell Clinic Celebrates Anniversary with Hundreds of Patients Treated

Tampa, FL (May 14, 2014) – On Tuesday, May 20, the Lung Institute is celebrating the first anniversary of its Tampa location. As a leader in regenerative medicine, the Lung Institute has provided over 250 treatments to lung disease patients who previously had no hope for better breathing and regaining quality of life. Lung Institute treats lung diseases including pulmonary fibrosis and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), a progressive disease that causes difficulty breathing, and is the third leading cause of death in the United States.

The Lung Institute has performed hundreds of minimally invasive, outpatient stem cell treatments on patients with a variety of debilitating lung diseases. Stem cells are taken from the patient’s own blood or fat tissue. The treatments cue healing processes in the lungs, allowing patients to get back to normal, everyday activities and breathe easier.

Patients from around the United States, and the world, have traveled to Tampa to receive treatment. Since inception, Lung Institute has more than doubled its staff, and is poised for growth going into its second year.  An anniversary celebration is being held on Tuesday, May 20, with a grand-prize giveaway of a free venous stem cell treatment* for one winner.
