More than 7 million Americans suffer from excessive sweating, a medical condition known as hyperhidrosis. Whether you've been living with hyperhidrosis for a short time or most of your life– and whether you've sought treatment elsewhere or you're considering a first consultation– help is available.
The Valley Hospital Hyperhidrosis Center offers a comprehensive program of treatment and support for patients who have excessive sweating disorders. Patients no longer need to suffer from the physically and socially isolating stigmas of hand sweating, facial blushing, body odor, or excessive underarm sweating.
The Valley Approach to Hyperhidrosis
At the Hyperhidrosis Center, we use a multidisciplinary approach to care. Our physicians are highly skilled in using today's most advanced medical and surgical treatment options for hyperhidrosis of the hands, face or armpits. Our medical staff includes board-certified thoracic surgeons with extensive expertise in thoracoscopic procedures, including endoscopic thoracic sympathectomy (ETS), and dermatologists who use medications and other methods to treat hyperhidrosis. And our nurses can answer questions and provide the support you need as you make the decision to seek treatment.
Hyperhidrosis Treatment Options
Depending on the area affected, the diagnosis and treatment of excessive sweating can vary. Treatment options include both conservative therapies as well as, in some cases, surgical intervention. Some examples of these treatment options include:
- Oral medications
- Topical treatments
- ETS surgery
- Botox injections
