Welcome to Newport Beach Hyperhidrosis Clinic

Endoscopic Thoracic Sympathectomy SurgeonsNewport Beach Hyperhidrosis Clinic has partnered with the surgeons of Raney Zusman Medical Group to provide surgical treatment for excessive sweating, a medical condition known as hyperhidrosis.

Hyperhidrosis is a common disorder affecting a large number of individuals.  A survey of 150,000 US households found the prevalence of hyperhidrosis to be around 2.8%.  The most common areas of excessive perspiration include sweaty palms, sweaty feet, sweaty hands, sweaty armpits, and sweating of the scalp or face. The condition often begins in adolescence but can occur in people of all ages, and often improves with age.

Hyperhidrosis occurs as a result of overactivity of the sympathetic nervous system, which controls sweating in the human body.  People with excessively sweaty palms, sweaty feet or facial blushing (hyperhidrosis) often seek treatment because the condition causes great distress and may impair quality of life causing numerous psychological, educational, and occupational problems.

The cause is unknown, but there seems to be a genetic tendency.  In one study, 49 of 58 patients receiving surgery for hyperhidrosis had a family member who also suffered from the disorder. People with excessively sweaty palms, sweaty feet or facial blushing often seek treatment because the condition causes great distress.  Hyperhidrosis may impair quality of life, causing numerous psychological, educational, and occupational problems.

Fortunately, there is are effective surgical and medical treatments for hyperhidrosis. The surgical treatment for hyperhidrosis is known as Endoscopic Thoracic Sympathectomy (ETS).  ETS is a proven surgical technique that disrupts the sympathetic chain and reduces or eliminates excessive hyperhidrosis of the hands, feet and facial blushing. (Surgical treatment for people with facial blushing only is not recommended by our physicians).  For more information, please see our section on results of surgery for excessive sweating.
