​Severe asthma and bronchial thermoplasty Q&A with Dr. Kyle Hogarth

It’s officially spring and the flowers are beginning to bloom. Although the change of seasons is welcome, especially in the Midwest, it brings about a whole new set of problems for those with asthma.

“Are you controlling your asthma, or is your asthma controlling you?” asks Dr. Hogarth, MD, associate professor of medicine who is director of bronchoscopy and minimally invasive diagnostics at the University of Chicago Medicine.

To help asthmatics figure out the answer to that question, Hogarth discussed the effects of asthma, what makes asthma severe and potential treatment options, including his specialty of bronchial thermoplasty during a recent Facebook Live.
