Pittsburgh Lung Disease Clinic

The Lung Institute is Coming to Pittsburgh

The Lung Institute specializes in treating debilitating lung diseases including chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), emphysema, chronic bronchitis, interstitial lung disease, pulmonary fibrosis and bronchiectasis. The Lung Institute harnesses the natural healing capacity of stem cells to effectively treat lung disease. They have completed over 800 treatments to date, and are opening several clinics throughout the country. The Pittsburgh Lung Disease Clinic will open in July of 2015.

Stem Cell Therapy

Many lung disease sufferers have opted in for stem cell therapy to improve their quality of life. While stem cell therapy isn’t a cure for lung disease, it has improved many patients’ quality of life. 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 the blood or bone marrow, and reintroduces them back into the body, targeting the damaged lung tissue. Stem cell therapy has significantly improved many patients’ lives by allowing them to breathe easier and do the things that they enjoy in life.

How it Works

Once the desired volume of stem cells are available, they are harvested from the patient’s own blood or bone marrow. The stem cells are then processed and returned to the patient intravenously or through the use of a nebulizer. Once the cells are returned to the patient, they will begin to promote healing.


While stem cell therapy doesn’t cure lung disease, in most cases it significantly improves patients’ quality of life. Stem cell therapy has been used to treat various lung diseases, including COPD, emphysema, chronic bronchitis, interstitial lung disease, pulmonary fibrosis and bronchietasis. Many Pittsburgh residents suffer from occupational lung disease, and the Lung Institute looks forward to provide an alternative treatment option for these residents.
