The Lung Institute Successfully Treats Lung Diseases

Lung diseases hinder patients from enjoying everyday life. It can make using the bathroom or even walking around the house hard as breathing is affected. Lung diseases such as pneumoconiosis, bronchiectasis, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), interstitial lung disease, emphysema, and chronic bronchitis are a hand full of diseases the Lung Institute treats.

They aim their treatments at the disease, slowing down the progression. This in turns calms the inflammation in the lungs alleviating symptoms. Older treatments treated the symptoms and not the disease and often left patients feeling the negative side effects that those treatments gave. But with stem cell therapy, it is a more natural approach as it takes from the patient’s stem cells and places them back into the body. This promotes the healing process on the diseased areas of the lung.

According to, stem cell therapy is not invasive and done over the course of a couple of days. With the venous treatment, an IV is placed and blood is taken. Venous treatment focuses on the hematopoietic stem cells, whereas bone marrow treatment focuses on hemapoietic and mesenchymal stem cells that is found in bone marrow. Once the blood is separated, it is then redelivered back into the body in the IV. Bone marrow treatment is a little more complex because it involves bone marrow aspiration. While both methods are successful, the bone marrow route holds a higher success rate because of the more concentrated forms of stem cells in the bone marrow. As the cells are separated, it is redelivered the same as the first method, via IV.

The physicians at The Lung Institute have over a century of medical knowledge, combined with a state of the art facility that opened their doors in the year 2013. Their main goal is the patients safety and well-being. The Lung Institute designed a successful treatment of stem cell therapy. They take each patients history into account and decide whether stem cell therapy will benefit them or not.

There success rate is over 70% and patients are seeing an improvement in their quality of life. Stem cell therapy is a more natural approach to treatment of chronic lung diseases. They take stem cells from the patient’s body and after the separation occurs, it is delivered back into the body.
