1000 Patients Have Received Stem Cell Therapy for Lung Disease from the Lung Institute
Tampa, FL (August 4, 2015) – Marvin S. recently stepped through the Lung Institute Tampa’s doors to receive stem cell therapy for chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). He received the venous treatment, meaning the stem cells were derived from his blood; a standard procedure for the Lung Institute. Marvin’s treatment, however was unique in another way. He was the 1000th patient to receive stem cell therapy from the Lung Institute. This marks a monumental milestone for the Lung Institute, which has been conducting stem cell treatments for lung disease for just over two years. The company is excited about their rapid growth and, most importantly, about having a positive impact on so many people’s lives.
Dire Prognosis with Traditional Medicine
Marvin had been discouraged by the prognosis that he received from his pulmonologist, which basically stated that there were no options with traditional medicine, and to let the disease take its course. Marvin has a family, friends and a life to live, and refused to accept this fate. He and his wife did extensive research regarding the matter, and kept stumbling upon the Lung Institute. Marvin’s wife said that about four people recommended the Lung Institute after undergoing treatment themselves. After much research, they decided to try the stem cell therapy for themselves, and Marvin became the Lung Institute’s 1000th patient. “I look forward to getting back to being me,” he stated in a tearful interview regarding the procedure. Six months after treatment, Marvin came back for a follow up and provided an additional testimonial, which can be viewed on our testimonial page.
Stem cells are the body’s natural healing mechanism. When you have a cut or illness, your body sends stem cells to the area to heal the damaged tissue. With lung disease, the disease often surpasses the body’s natural healing capacity, and stem cell therapy accelerates that natural healing process.
Stem Cells and the Lung Institute
The Lung Institute prides itself on providing lung disease sufferers an alternative to traditional options that only treat the symptoms rather than the disease itself. Treating the 1000th patient is a huge landmark for the company, and they look forward to positively affecting many lives in the future. The company recently opened their fourth clinic in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania in July of 2015, and plans to open six more clinics throughout the country in 2016.
Additionally, the Lung Institute strives to create a strong culture for employees that springs from core values and a dedication to give back. They have formed a charity board where they work with organizations like Meals on Wheels, Joshua House, Created Women and more. Their focus is on servant leadership and making the communities around them a better place to live.
