In the growing field of regenerative medicine, learning more about your physicians and their backgrounds is important. You and your doctors will work together to develop the best treatment plan for you. If you’re considering treatment for a chronic lung disease at the Lung Institute, we want you to feel connected. It’s important to get to know your doctors, so we sat down with Dr. Jack Coleman, Jr. for an interview. See what we learned in our Stem Cell Physician Interview with Dr. Jack Coleman, Jr.
What is your medical background?
I have a medical degree, and I completed general surgery PGY1 & 2 at Cincinnati General Hospital. I also completed residency in otolaryngology and head and neck surgery at University of Pittsburgh Eye and Ear hospital. In addition, I did a fellowship in general and facial plastic and cosmetic surgery in Little Rock, Arkansas.
What is your official title at the Lung Institute?
My official title is M.D. and Medical Director of the Nashville Lung Institute clinic.
What made you want to join the Lung Institute?
I am interested in cellular medicine and in the challenge of developing new methods to treat an incurable disease.
What would you like to share about stem cell therapy and regenerative medicine?
It is the future of medicine to develop ways of treating diseases and aging by utilizing the body’s own resources instead of exogenous chemicals and potentially harmful treatment modalities.
How does the Lung Institute compare to other industry trends you’ve seen in regards to stem cells?
I like the fact that we are focused in one area and not trying to be everything to everybody. It allows us to more closely monitor patient improvement. It also gives us the ability to quickly modify and evaluate changes in treatment protocols based on the latest advancements in CT & RM scans (Computed Tomography Scans and Magnetic Resonance Imaging Scans).
How does the Lung Institute compare to other companies in patient care?
I think the Lung Institute is focused on providing patient care that is up-to-date with the latest technologies and findings while maintaining a very safe treatment profile. The facilities are also following the best practices in patient care, carefully selecting the best trained personnel to care for the patients and maintaining a very comfortable atmosphere for our patients.
What is it like working with the clinic staff?
They are excellent, experienced people who are carefully selected and well trained.
What do you find to be the most rewarding part of your job?
The most rewarding part of my job is hearing back from patients that have been helped by our treatments. It’s also exciting to see the rapid rate of advancement in the field.
Every day is a learning day.
Thank you, Dr. Coleman!
