Hyperhidrosis means excessive sweating. This usually affects the palms of the hands, axillae, and soles of the feet.

Interventions we offer:

If this condition affects one’s daily life, and other, conservative treatments have failed, then we may recommend surgical intervention:

  • Thoracic sympathectomy

    This procedure involves the cutting of the upper thoracic sympathetic chain. After surgery, there is a possibility of developing compensatory hyperhidrosis; this means that by fixing excessive sweating on one body part, sweating may instead occur on another body part.
