NEW ASTHMA RX

Dr. Robert J. Brueck MD FACS, a Fort Myers Board Certified plastic surgeon, uses this blog to provide information and news about skin health, plastic surgery and other health matters.

Asthma is something we all know about.

More than 22 million Americans suffer from it.

It usually is treated with medications. Now there is a SURGICAL procedure developed to treat asthma. It is called bronchial thermoplasty.

The procedure uses radio frequency waves to shrink the smooth muscle cells that cause the airways to narrow and create a "suffocating" feeling. This procedure is offered in 30 centers around the country. The procedure consists of 3 separate treatments.
