HYPERHIDROSIS Endoscopic Thoracic Sympathectomy for Hand Sweating, Axillary Sweating, Facial Sweating and Facial Blushing is offered at the Center. This operation is performed as an outpatient procedure, under complete anesthesia, with minimal pain and immediate results. Dr. Edelman has performed over 1000 procedures. Dr. Edelman was trained by Dr. Ivo Tarfusser, one of the innovators of the Swedish Technique. Clamps are used to interrupt the nerve impulses of the ganglion that controls the sweating, but cutting the nerves is offered as an alternative. Success is greater than 98%. Complications are uncommon. Compensatory Sweating continues to be the most common side effect of this procedure. Contact Dr. Edelman by E-mail or call for a consultation if you have palmar sweating, facial or axillary sweating.
