Interstitial Lung Disease Treatment in Pittsburgh
The Lung Institute is coming to PA
The Lung Institute specializes in treating debilitating lung diseases like interstitial lung disease using cellular therapy. 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.
Many interstitial lung disease sufferers have experienced an improved quality of live after undergoing cellular therapy. One Lung Institute patient, Arnold M., reported on a recent trip to his pulmonologist. “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 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.”
So how does the process work? The minimally invasive outpatient procedure typically takes three days. The cells are extracted from the patient’s blood, fat or bone marrow, treated, and then reintroduced into the body. Cells naturally act as our body’s system to promote healing, so by reintroducing them into the body directly into the areas that need it, we’re essentially speeding up the body’s natural healing process. When we use cells from our own bodies, we also eliminate the possibility of the body rejecting the cells.
