Bronchial Thermoplasty (BT) is an exciting new treatment for patients with severe persistent asthma that is not well controlled with conventional treatments. BT is a minimally invasive bronchoscopic procedure designed to reduce airway smooth muscle thereby decreasing the frequency and severity of asthma attacks.
Dr. J.D. Hinze and Dr. Kenneth Perret are currently performing BT at Seton Medical Center. More information regarding BT is available at www.btforasthma.com.
