HYPERHIDROSIS- HAND SWEATING
Perspiration is the body's natural method of cooling itself down during active periods or exposure to warm conditions. Severe hand sweating with a feeling of embarrassment is usually caused by an increased activity in the sympathetic nervous system; a system of nerves over which we have no control. Such excessive perspiration is not important for normal regulation and control of body temperature. These conditions can be cured by dividing or clamping the nerves which regulate sweating of the hands, armpit and face as well as facial blushing. The surgical cure for this affliction is known as ETS or Endoscopic Transthoracic Sympathectomy. Dr. Edelman has successfully located these specialized areas of the nervous system inside the chest cavity using a miniature camera and instrument. The nerve supply to the sweat glands is cut or clamped, preventing excessive sweating.The effect of the operation is immediate. Compensatory sweating occurs in all patients but only severe in 2% of patients.
Dr. Edelman has successfully treated thousands of patients using this technique.
