“Pulmonary fibrosis is a debilitating disease that leaves sufferers with limited options,” said Lynne Flaherty, Director of Operations at Lung Institute. “At the Lung Institute, we’re not only providing innovative treatments for pulmonary fibrosis in Tampa that aid in the restoration of damaged lung tissues, we’re also striving to raise awareness about all the different types of lung diseases and available stem cell treatments for lung dise
