Palmar hyperhidrosis is a disabling condition that manifests itself as excessive sweating of the hands. Although the exact cause is unknown, several medical and surgical therapies are available to treat it.

We believe that thoracoscopic sympathectomy is a safe and effective treatment for palmar hyperhidrosis.
