Sweaty Palms

Suzanne Gomes, a 19-year-old college student in Mumbai, India, suffered from hyperhidrois or sweaty palms. Her case was severe; and, she desperately wanted to rid her hands of their never-ending dampness. Minor surgery has cured her of the problem, she says. She went to a P D Hinduja Hospital; and, in a 30-minute procedure, her hyperactive sweat glands were operated on. The laparoscopic surgery involved inserting a tool through a keyhole into the chest cavity where the nerves are located. It left a tiny scar and dry hands for a thankful Gomes.

Hi ,

Can I Know is this completly cured without any side effects.

I believe it was totally corrected; but, as with anything of this nature, I suggest you get two different medical opinions before considering having the procedure done.

Which Two different Medical Opinion?

Start with your GP. Ask him for help determining which specialist might be required for such a procedure; and, to recommend you to two different doctors for consultation. You might also try contacting the College of Physicians and Surgeons (or the equivalent where you live) asking for their advice.
