Interstitial Lung Disease Treatment Pennsylvania

What is Interstitial Lung Disease?

Interstitial lung disease is an umbrella term used to categorize over 100 different types of pulmonary disorders that affect the absorption of oxygen into the lungs. It includes a diverse collection of illnesses with a variety of causes, treatments and prognoses. Individuals who suffer from interstitial lung disease often have difficulty breathing and moving from place to place due to a consistent feeling of shortness of breath. Disorders classified under interstitial lung disease are often characterized by scarring of the lung’s delicate tissues and a dry, pestering cough.

Stem Cell Therapy for Interstitial Lung Disease

Stem cell therapy harnesses the natural healing capabilities of the body’s stem cells. The stem cells are extracted from a person’s blood, fat for bone marrow, treated, and reintroduced into the body. The Lung Institute specializes in stem cell therapy for lung disease, and will be opening a clinic for interstitial lung disease treatment in Pennsylvania in July of 2015. They look forward to helping many lung disease sufferers in the Pittsburgh area.

Many lung disease sufferers have seen great results from stem cell therapy. Lung Institute patient, Gary W, talks about his experience with stem cell therapy. “I took care of myself all winter. I plowed my own driveway, but I always wore a mask, I don’t suck in the cold air. But regardless, I haven’t used oxygen in months. I have a portable oxygen unit that I had been using for a while, I can’t tell you long ago it’s been. But it has definitely made a difference. I’m very impressed and I recommend it to everybody.”

 The Lung Institute is Coming to Pennsylvania

The Lung Institute has completed over 800 treatments in the past two years, and is expanding rapidly. They are looking forward to opening a new clinic in Pittsburgh in July 2015.
