A Fantastic Voyage: What I found out about my lungs, stem cells and the Lung Institute

As an aging female recreational smoker, that has recently accelerated to daily smoker status- the health and general condition of lungs is a fascinating topic for me. Coupled with an enlightening documentary recently watched on stem cells- it left me wondering what are the advancements and procedures concerning stem cells and lungs? After doing a little internet digging, I happened upon a lovely resource site that combines the best of worlds, lungs and stem cells.

Priding themselves on being the industry leaders and innovators is the Lung Institute. Stem cell therapy is indeed a radical and cutting-edge concept!. For the brain, stem cells can regenerate damaged or diseased areas. For the lungs, stem cells are used to prevent future damage, not necessarily replace or regrow any damaged areas. The prospects are not as clearly defined, however, advancements have been made. “There is currently no cure for COPD, but treatment options such as stem cell therapy can prevent more damage and improve the patient’s quality of life.” (2016, May 13) Retrieved from http://www.copdnewstoday.com

Looking at preventive results after lung treatment would be a better expectation then expecting a complete rebirth of brand-new healthy lungs. Consumers might be misled from what they hear from stories or have gathered from browsing various sites. COPD is chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, otherwise known as Bronchitis and Emphysema. Knowing where to start finding information is useful, deciding which websites are productive is another voyage.

Arriving at the Lung Institute website, the main landing page was noted to be clean, simple, and easy to navigate. Website speed was flawless and the connection secure. The Lung Institute boasts four locations: Baylor College of Medicine in Tampa, Nashville, Pittsburgh, Scottsdale, and Dallas. They have a team of three distinguished doctors and an extremely simple online information form request system. What is more amazing is the presence of a blog on their website! A blog allows the consumer to post a message to a public board, usually after completing a simple e-mail sign up process. Customer feedback is so crucial to the serious entrepreneur; patient feedback especially should be commonplace!

Companies who genuinely care about their customer’s experiences should have an actual dialog and offer open lines of communication, particularly post-transaction. It is delightful to read about happy patients and their glowing reviews and recommendations. Even more so, observing how a business responds to complaints also reflects their character. As an e-commerce seller, my biggest learning lesson is that there is always a percentage of the general public that has a complaint. Beware of any business that sets up a blog, then does not respond or provide detailed assistance for consumers. Kudos to the Lung Institute!
