Why Choose Us for Hyperhidrosis Treatment?
The University of Chicago Medicine is one of the few medical centers in the country to perform needlescopic hyperhidrosis surgery. Because the needlescopic instruments are so slim, surgeons only need to make two incisions less than 1/8 inch in length. This results in extremely small post-surgical scars -- less than half the size of other ETS procedures. Most patients do not even need stitches after surgery.
Our thoracic surgery team includes nationally recognized experts who have had extensive experience in thoracoscopic techniques. They have performed many thoracoscopic sympathectomy procedures for hyperhidrosis with excellent results.
