Bronchial Thermoplasty for Asthma

We offer this very specialist treatment for patients with severe asthma on the maximum medical treatment.

Patients require a detailed assessment to check if they are suitable for the treatment. The treatment involves heating up the airways with a special catheter during a bronchoscopy to selectively reduce smooth muscle in the airways. Reducing the smooth muscle may reduce the amount of spasm in the airways and hence improve asthma control and symptoms. Patients usually require three separate treatments.
