The Lung Institute provides stem cell treatment for major pulmonary conditions including chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD, https://lunginstitute.com/lung-diseases/copd/), Emphysema, Chronic Bronchitis, Pulmonary Fibrosis and Interstitial Lung Disease. Due to negative side effects associated with traditional treatment options that only address the symptoms rather than the progression of the disease, The Lung Institute created a therapeutic stem cell protocol to offer the option of healing. Their procedure is minimally invasive and has demonstrated effectiveness in its ability to ease symptoms and address progression of the disease.
They begin by drawing a small blood or bone marrow sample from the patient’s own body. Stem cells taken from the patient’s body are known as autologous stem cells. These cells use the body’s own natural healing ability. Stem cells are separated from the other cells in the sample and then reintroduced to the bloodstream. In the bloodstream, the stem cells enter the right chamber of the heart and then into the lungs. The stem cells are then collected naturally in the pulmonary trap where they may begin the healing process in the lungs. The Lung Institute’s clinical team works with the patient’s physician and pulmonologist and remains in contact with patients after treatment.
According to Cedars-Sinai, since 2013, over 3,000 patients have been treated with over 70 percent of those patients reporting and increase in their quality of life. Though not all patients qualify for bone marrow treatment, patients report a higher success rate using this regimen with significant improvement in the quality of life.
The lung Institute has five locations across the country to better serve patients:
Tampa, FL Pittsburg, PA Scottsdale, AZ
