Lung Institute Nashville!
With COPD Awareness Month in full swing, we thought that we would look back at the opening of our latest facility in Nashville, Tennessee! With Nashville being a hub for medical technology, this was a prime location to expand our brand. After the current success of treating 400 patients at the clinic in Tampa, FL., the new expansion brings cellular therapys and innovative medicine to the Nashville area. Using cells from the patient’s own body, we treat lung diseases including pulmonary fibrosis and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), progressive diseases that causes difficulty breathing.
What Happened at the Opening!?!
The new center was marked by an official ribbon cutting ceremony with the LI medical staff, RMS corporate team, and members of the Nashville Chamber of Commerce. A special thanks to the Nashville community as well for the welcome! The show of support from the community and commissioners was a wonderful site to see! Here are some the images from the Grand Opening:
How are these Treatments Helping Patients?
We are all about sharing stories from our patients that have started to feel better after treatment Our standard is to provide the highest level of quality care with sensitivity, compassion and professionalism. Here are some of our patient testimonials and learn more about the individuals who have volunteered to share their story.
Al C.: Twelve years ago, Al C. was exposed to toxic fumes in the workplace and subsequently diagnosed with interstitial lung disease and bronchiectasis. Living in upstate New York and running his horse farm, these serious pulmonary conditions had a major effect on Al’s life. Seeking an alternative treatment to help with his symptoms, Al visited the Lung Institute for cellular therapy. After his treatment, Al is feeling better and getting back to his routine on the farm. “It takes me less time and oxygen to tend to my horse farm,” says Al.
Gary B: With every cellular therapy at the Lung Institute, Gary finds breathing without oxygen easier and easier. He went from not being able to breathe to going out to dinner without his oxygen, enjoying time with friends and even playing golf on championship courses once again.
Cellular therapy can be treated at the Lung Institute for certain lung diseases. If you or someone you love would like know more about treatment options, feel free to contact one of our patient care coordinators today or call (800) 729-3065 today.
