The Lung Institute is Celebrating its Two Year Anniversary

Tampa, FL (May 14, 2015) – The Lung Institute is celebrating two years of helping patients breathe easier. Over the past two years, they have completed over 800 treatments to help those with debilitating lung diseases such as chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), pulmonary fibrosis or interstitial lung disease.

The Lung Institute uses stem cell therapy to improve lung function. Everyone has stem cells in their bodies that act as our body’s system to promote healing. Stem cell therapy specifically targets damaged areas and accelerates the healing process. The Lung Institute uses a minimally invasive procedure that extracts stem cells from fat tissue, blood or bone marrow, and reintroduces them back into the body, targeting the damaged lung tissue. While stem cell therapy isn’t a cure, it has significantly improved many patients’ lives by allowing them to breathe easier.

Lung Institute Patient Testimonials

Lung Institute patient, Arnold M., recalled a recent appointment with his pulmonologist after undergoing a stem cell therapy treatment. “The pulmonologist said, ‘You seem to be doing real well, what have you been doing lately?’ I said that I’ve just been taking care of myself and he goes ‘My god, you’ve been doing a good job.’ He couldn’t believe I was that good. So, I walked up and down the hall for him and he said, ‘My god you are doing good.’ Then I told him about stem cells and he stood there with his mouth hanging open. I guess he didn’t run across anybody that has done it. He was kind of amazed.”

Another patient, Gary W., talks about his experience with stem cell therapy with the Lung Institute. “It’s worked. It’s done a great job for me, we can tell the difference. In fact, so well that we’re leaving tomorrow morning for Vegas. Last couple times we’ve been there we haven’t left our condo but 2-3 days out of the week because I couldn’t breathe, I couldn’t walk… not so this year. I can walk, I can talk. Unlike before, I wouldn’t be able to finish a whole sentence without taking a deep breath. None of that exists anymore.”

New Clinic Opening in Pittsburgh July 2015

The Lung Institute is excited to celebrate two years of helping those with debilitating lung disease enjoy a better quality of life. They have clinics in Tampa, Nashville and Scottsdale, and are looking forward to opening a new clinic in Pittsburgh in July 2015.

    Hi Abdul,

    Thanks for your comment. Unfortunately health insurance does not currently cover stem cell therapy for pulmonary conditions. As with all new medical treatments, it takes years before insurance companies start paying as a standard. Eventually insurance will be on board, but they have to see long-term savings in their favor before that happens. Please let us know if you have any other questions! To speak with a patient coordinator directly, call (855) 313-1149.
