January 2015


A New Year means new ways to treat lung disease in 2015! If you have been diagnosed with a chronic lung disease, then you know that it is taking a toll on how you feel every day. Stem cell therapy is proving to be a viable option in reducing the symptoms of lung disease and improving overall lung function. Make this New Year different and take your treatment into your own hands. From all of us at the Lung Institute, we wish you and your family a Happy New Year!

The Lung Institute is starting this New Year off with an expansion. We will be opening a new facility in Scottsdale, Arizona on Monday, February 9, 2015. The latest clinic will be located at 8377 East Hartford Drive, Suite 120, right in the heart of Scottsdale. The addition of this treatment center will create new jobs, benefit local businesses and booster the medical tourism industry of the Scottsdale area.

Is the New Year inspiring you to learn more about your treatment options for lung disease? We will be holding seminars this month in both Tampa and Nashville with Dr. Burton Feinerman to address how stem cell therapy is performed and how it can help improve your quality of life. You will have the opportunity to ask questions and to set up a free consultation. There will be refreshments, giveaways and exclusive specials for attendees towards treatment! Are you worried that you will not be able to attend a session but really want to get the information you need about your stem cell therapy options? Call us to see how you can log into a live broadcast of either session. Visit our page for more information.

Helping you to breathe easier,

Dr. James St. Louis

Chief Medical Officer

Lung Institute Coming to ScottsdaleFrom the blog: Here’s to the Power of Positive Thinking

“While I am not cured, I am also not sick. Thanks to Lucy, optimism and the Lung Institute, I am still going strong twelve years later. The power of positivity doesn’t lie in the ability to say three good things about yourself after you say something negative; no, the power of positivity lies in the opportunity to keep looking for new options. If I had given up that cold winter day twelve years ago, I never would have found the Lung Institute, I never would’ve gotten stem cell therapy, and most importantly, I never would have been alive today.”

National COPD Awareness MonthPatient Spotlight: Vickie

Vickie was diagnosed with COPD several years ago and was facing a downward spiral of breathing treatments and oxygen therapy. Eventually, her doctor told her that she would need to be placed on a lung transplant list. Once Vickie learned that the average life expectancy after a lung transplant is only 3 to 5 years, she decided to look for alternatives. That is when she discovered the Lung Institute and stem cell therapy for COPD. After traveling to Tampa for treatment, she began to notice changes in just two to three weeks. Months later, not only is she feeling better, but her lung function has improved as well.

Five Minutes with FeinermanThe Gift of Breath

The ability to breathe is something that many of us often take for granted. Having a lung condition can make this extremely difficult, but it especially rings true for one teenage girl, Varuni Persaud. This 17-year-old girl was born with trachea atresia, meaning she was born without a trachea. Over the course of her life, Varuni has lived with pneumonia, pulmonary hypertension and is now facing a lung transplant. For this happy and energetic teenager, waiting for new pair of lungs was not an option.
