Interstitial Lung Disease Treatment Centers
The Lung Institute is a network of interstitial lung disease treatment centers that offers adults an alternative approach to care. The first cellular therapy center in the world to focus exclusively on lung disease, the Lung Institute helps eligible patients find relief from their symptoms through autologous cell therapy – a relatively painless outpatient procedure that leverages the patients’ own cells to promote natural healing.
Interstitial lung disease actually describes several conditions that cause progressive and irreversible scarring in the lung tissue that surrounds the air sacs. There are a variety of factors that can lead to this form of lung disease, including occupational hazards like prolonged exposure to coal and silica dust, and autoimmune conditions such as sarcoidosis and scleroderma. Shortness of breath and a persistent dry cough are the primary symptoms of interstitial lung disease, although noticeable symptoms may not be present initially.
The compassionate team at the Lung Institute is devoted to helping patients with interstitial lung disease breathe easier and participate more in the activities they enjoy. While there is not yet a cure for interstitial lung disease, cellular therapy at the Lung Institute may help reduce lung inflammation, slow symptom progression, improve lung function and enhance overall quality of life. In fact, more than 80 percent of patients report an improvement in quality of life following treatment at the Lung Institute.
