About Bronchial Thermoplasty

Hear from Patients about their experience with BT

  1. “The impact BT had for me is quite dramatic. I have overall better asthma control. Having struggled my whole life, almost daily, with severe asthma, so to  finally be living a life that is not centered on my asthma control is amazing.” Read More.... -Mark

  2. "I would have BT again in a heartbeat! I still have severe asthma but now that it is in better control it does not hold me back. I am constantly on the go now. I have a career and travel for work and pleasure all the time. ” Read More.... -Krystal

  3. “It has now been over a year since I had BT and I have been doing amazing. I have only been on Prednisone for one 5-day burst when I caught the flu. This is a stark contrast to years prior where I would need Prednisone bursts on a regular basis to treat severe asthma attacks. My health and asthma-related quality of life have improved greatly.” Read More.... -David

  4. “The procedures went pretty smoothly for me. Now it’s been over two years. I am golfing more and better yet, I can walk the courses now! I am missing less work. Haven’t had any ER visits. I’ve only needed one burst of steroids for a severe flare up in the past two years. Before BT, I needed one per month!” Read More.... -Julie
