Bronchial Thermoplasty (BT) Program

The OSU Asthma Center is now approved to begin our bronchial thermoplasty (BT) program. BT is an FDA-approved procedure that applies thermal energy to the airways of patients with severe asthma. BT has been shown to improve symptoms, reduce emergency department visits, and reduce asthma flares in severe asthmatics. BT is approved for carefully selected patients at least 18 years old with severe persistent asthma. Not all patients will be candidates for BT. If you are a patient interested in being evaluated for BT at The OSU Asthma Center or want to refer a patient for evaluation, please call 614-293-4925 to arrange an evaluation.
