St. John’s Riverside Hospital is one of the first to introduce Bronchial Thermoplasty (BT) as a safely performed same day procedure.  The bronchial tubes are composed of muscle tissue which expand and contract in a normal manner. When a patient suffers with asthma, the tubes cannot readily expand which makes the breathing labored.

chronic long term use. Read More
