Surgery for Sweating-Mayo Clinic

November 18, 2008

It's one thing to work up a good sweat while exercising. But when you're at work, school or a social gathering, you don't want to be dripping wet. With a condition called hyperhidrosis, you may not have a choice. Your hands or arm pits can sweat so badly that you avoid contact with people. It can be frustrating and embarassing. But doctors at Mayo Clinic say a minimally invasive outpatient surgery can stop the sweating.
