Excessive Sweating Causes
When perspiration in the armpits is excessive, the condition is often a debilitating disorder that can affect one’s work and life professionally as well as personally. Self esteem is affected, causing the person to feel isolated and withdrawn.
This excessive sweating can be controlled by prescription antiperspirants, pills, neuromodulator injections, scraping of the glands or excision of the affected skin. The procedures are well tolerated as they are performed under local anesthesia. 90% improvement of axillary sweating can be expected. For patients with hand sweating, the most effective and curative procedure is Endoscopic Thoracic Sympathectomy. This outpatient procedure is done under general anesthesia, and it involves dividing the hyperactive nerve, responsible for inappropriate excessive sweating.
Our surgery center specializes in the minimally invasive control of hyperhidrosis. The doctors and our staff are highly qualified, dedicated, and caring professionals who consider it a privilege to provide medical care.
