Essential for the human body to function properly, stem cells serve as the foundation for life. Self-replicating and renewable, stem cells are instrumental in tissue creation throughout the body.
The Lung Institute is an innovator in pulmonary stem cell therapy. Based in Tampa, Florida, the Lung Institute is the leading institution for stem cell research. Patients throughout the United States and around the world come to the Lung Institute for this miraculous therapy. Patient testimonials show stem cell therapy is effective in promoting healing.
For pulmonary diseases, the Lung Institute extracts autologous stem cells from a patient’s body. The autologous stem cells can come from either the patient’s own blood or bone marrow.Stem cell treatment involves three stages:
- To harvest stem cells, removal of a minute bone marrow or blood specimen
- Stem cell specimens separation from each other
- Concentrated stem cells injected back into the bloodstream
The concentrated stems, once in the bloodstream, circulate throughout the body but tend to pool in the lungs. This collection of stem cells starts to rehabilitate and restore lung tissue.
