Endoscopic Sympathectomy

Endoscopic Sympathectomy is a highly effective treatment which stops patients from sweating profusely. These patients sweat to such a degree that it is affecting them negatively in their day-to-day life.  The procedure uses a small electric current, passed through a node attached to a catheter, to damage the nerves in the thorax which are sympathetic to, or have an impact on, the patient’s capacity to continue to sweat.
