Your Strength Gives Hope

In May 2016, the Lung Institute turns 3 years old. In that time, we have had the opportunity to help many people regain their quality of life through stem cell therapy. Our patients come from many different backgrounds and enjoy diverse hobbies, but all have two things in common: hope and strength.

“When I would walk the dog, I would have to stop to catch my breath. Now, I’m able to walk the whole way without stopping.” –Roger K.

Even though living with a chronic lung disease has many challenges, we’re proud of the progress our patients have made. Our patients have shared their stories with us to help raise awareness about chronic lung diseases and encourage others to find an alternative treatment option that could help them, too. Our patients continue to inspire us by living their lives. Join our celebration by celebrating the lives of the thousands of patients we’ve treated who are feeling better than ever.

“We have a beach pass that you have to walk down steps. I can do 480 steps. I was lucky if I could do 5 before.” –Tammi S.

Check out our video below to hear what our patients are saying:

“If you are skeptical, unsure about it, listen to my results. 19% lung capacity increased up to 33%. The sky is the limit.” –Fred M.

With 5 clinics nationwide in Tampa, FL; Scottsdale, AZ; Pittsburgh, PA; Nashville, TN; and Dallas, TX, we’ve been able to grow to help more people with chronic lung diseases thanks to the hope and strength of our courageous patients. With over 2,000 people treated, we look forward to helping many more people access the stem cell treatment they need.

“I wanted to walk across a soccer field to see my grandson play soccer, and I can.” –Becky D.

“I feel better! I walk around. I go to the stores and walk around. I don’t use the electric cart like I used to.” –Bernard W.

“My pulmonologist of 15 years told me that my lungs sound better now than he has ever heard them.” –Bill W.

With events, informational materials, blog articles and a caring staff, our patients always come first. We’re happy to answer your questions, so feel free to contact us at (800) 729-3065. Like our patients, you could see improvements to your lung health and overall quality of life, too, and we’re here to help every step of the way.

    I am so glad I had this treatment. It has only been three weeks, but I am walking, shopping, visiting so friends, going to church services, cleaning, and cooking, just to name a few. Before treatment I was very limited in what I could do. I am off Prednisone, and am working on getting off oxygen. I am using inhalers less frequently. My daughter is amazed because I can talk to her for more than two minutes before I was out of breath. This treatment beats lung transfer any day. Hopefully insurance companies will soon start paying for this.

    Hello, Monilal. If you or your brother would like to start a conversation about whether stem cell treatment is an option for him, please call us at (855) 313-1139. Our friendly patient coordinators will have a few initial questions about your brother’s medical history to determine whether he is a qualified candidate treatment. We wish you the best and hope to hear from you soon.

    Best Regards,
    The Lung Institute

    My elder brother is an ILD patient. He can’t pass a single moment without oxygen . Is stem cell therapy can improve this condition ?

    Dear Jan,

    First and foremost, we’re sorry to hear that treatment did not help your mother or her friend as hoped. While 82% of our patients saw an increase in quality of life after stem cell treatment, and 60% of those who took a pulmonary function test reported an increase in lung function, there is a percentage of patients who do not see the results expected. If you have any questions moving forward, please feel free to contact us at (855) 313-1149.

    Kind Regards,

    The Lung Institute

    Dear Ruth,

    Thanks for your comment and questions. Unfortunately, at this time, treatment is not covered by insurance. However, we are hopeful that it will be covered in the future. Keep in mind that the process of getting a treatment covered can take time. Because treatment cost varies depending on treatment type, it’s best to speak with one of our patient coordinators to have your questions answered. We would be happy to answer any questions you have about stem cell therapy, so feel free to contact us today to speak one-on-one with one of our patient coordinators by calling (855) 313-1149. We look forward to hearing from you soon.

    Best Regards,

    The Lung Institute
