Welcome to Neumark Surgery, a leading medical center specializing in helping individuals overcome excessive hand sweating. If you are dealing with sweaty palms, you understand the discomfort and inconvenience it can cause in different aspects of your life.

The Impact of Sweaty Palms

Sweaty palms, also known as palmar hyperhidrosis, can significantly impact a person's daily activities, social interactions, and self-confidence. Imagine being hesitant to shake hands, frequently needing to wipe your palms, or feeling anxious about leaving sweaty marks on paper or electronic devices. It can be frustrating and emotionally distressing.

Understanding Sweaty Palms

Sweaty palms are caused by overactive sweat glands in the hands. While sweating is a natural body mechanism to regulate temperature, excessive sweating in the palms can occur even when the body does not need to cool down. This condition can be hereditary or caused by various factors, including stress, anxiety, hormonal changes, or certain medical conditions.

Treatment Options

1. Non-Surgical Therapies

At Neumark Surgery, we offer a range of non-surgical therapies to help manage sweaty palms. These therapies provide effective and long-lasting results without the need for invasive procedures. Our skilled doctors will assess your condition and recommend the most suitable therapy for you.

a) Topical Treatments

Topical treatments are a popular choice for individuals seeking relief from sweaty palms. These treatments generally include antiperspirant creams or lotions specially formulated to reduce sweat production in the hands. They can be applied directly to the palms, offering temporary relief for several hours. Our doctors will provide guidance on the most effective topical treatments available.

b) Iontophoresis

Iontophoresis involves using a medical device to deliver a mild electrical current to the palms, effectively blocking the sweat glands. It is a safe and non-invasive procedure that typically requires multiple sessions for optimal results. Our experienced medical professionals will customize the treatment plan according to your specific needs.

2. Surgical Options

For severe cases of sweaty palms that do not respond to non-surgical therapies, our skilled plastic surgeons at Neumark Surgery offer surgical options. These procedures aim to permanently reduce excessive sweat production and provide long-lasting relief from sweaty palms.

a) Endoscopic Thoracic Sympathectomy (ETS)

ETS is a minimally invasive surgical procedure performed under general anesthesia. It involves interrupting the nerve signals responsible for excessive sweating. By targeting the sympathetic nerves in the chest, our surgeons can significantly reduce or eliminate palmar hyperhidrosis symptoms. ETS is a safe and effective treatment, but it should be considered when non-surgical options have been thoroughly explored.

b) Botox Injections

Botox injections have been found to be effective in temporarily blocking the signals that stimulate sweat production. This is achieved by injecting small amounts of Botox into the palms, which relaxes the muscles responsible for activating sweat glands. While this treatment is not permanent and requires repeat injections, it offers immediate relief for several months.
