Do you know Hyperhidrosis?


Surgery :

Minimally Access Surgery has revolutionized the treatment of sweaty palms. Endoscopic Thoracic Sympathectomy (ETS) is a minimally invasive procedure that allows key-hole access to the sympathetic chain that lies deep within the thorax (chest). The sympathetic chain is selectively blocked where it sends out nerve branches to the sweat glands in the palm. Special instruments are inserted into the chest through tiny holes with negligible scarring as compared to conventional opening of the chest. It has excellent results (more than 90%) which are usually permanent.

Any friends with sweaty palms & soles who underwent ETS surgery? Can you share pre-post surgery experience? Did the surgery cured? Any side-effects?
