Life After Treatment

Over the course of our history, patients have had a lot to say about the Lung Institute and their life after treatment. For many, an improvement to their quality of life can seem impossible after years of gradual decline and ineffective medication. However, within six months of treatment our patients have seen inspiring improvements to their health and well-being; improvements that have fundamentally changed the way they view and live their lives.

For your peace of mind we invite you to take a look at the faces behind treatment, and the meaningful and life-changing effects treatment has had on the lives of our patients.
