Uncontrollable severe "Facial Sweating" is a physical condition caused by over-activity in the so-called sympathetic nervous system, a system made up of nerves over which we have no control. These uncontrollable nerves may become especially active during important activities and contact with other people.
The operation, called ETS (Endoscopic Transthoracic Sympathicotomy), is performed under general anesthesia and interrupts the nervous over-activity of the sweat glands.
Complications from ETS have been extremely rare (see Frequently Asked Questions). The main indication for this procedure has been hand sweat, but the operation has turned out to be effective for facial sweating in many patients as well.
If conservative treatments have failed in persons with disabling facial sweating, ETS might be an option for your hyperhidrosis treatment.
