Bronchial Thermoplasty - St. David's Georgetown Hospital

BT is a bronchoscopy based procedure that uses radiofrequency (RF) energy (or heat) to reduce the amount of excess airway smooth muscle (ASM) present in the airways and limit its ability to contract and narrow the airway. A complete BT treatment is performed in three outpatient procedure visits, each scheduled approximately three weeks apart.
