What is Hyperhidrosis?
Hyperhidrosis is a hereditary condition caused by an overactive sympathetic nervous system that affects about 7.8 million Americans. Symptoms include excessive sweating from armpits, palms, face & head and feet.
Excessive sweating can be solved by using a mini-endoscopic sympathectomy (ETS). During this procedure, the surgeon attempts to interrupt the transmission of nerve signals to the sweat glands. The physicians at Colorado Cardiovascular Surgical Associates perform ETS and are available for consultation.
- ETS is the only procedure available that provides a permanent solution to excessive hand sweating (palmar hyperhidrosis).
- The procedure is proven to be safe and effective.
- This procedure has a 98-99% success rate.
