Hi DAWG,
 
Welcome to Healing Well!  Glad you've joined us.  Hopefully, another member will be by soon to share his/her personal experience with this procedure.  I've never had it done, and really wasn't familiar with it, but it sounds very promising to me.  It's good to know that it is an option.  Here's a link to a National Jewish Hospital (rated #1 respiratory hospital in the country by all accounts) that provides some information:
 
Good luck with the procedure!  Please stick around and let us know what it was like and how your recovery is doing.  We'll be with you in spirit!
 
Best wishes,
Denise

Hi DAWG,
 
I've thought about bronchial thermoplasty but don't think it is available in FL where I live.  I can't tolerate inhalational corticosteroids: sore throat and loss of voice even tho' I rinse meticulously after using inhaler.  How did your thermoplasty at end of Sept. go?  If I understand correctly, it takes a while for the benefits of thermoplasty to occur.
