Axillary hyperhidrosis surgery treats excessive sweating, particularly in the armpit.
What is axillary hyperhidrosis surgery?
Axillary hyperhidrosis surgery is a minimally-invasive arthroscopic procedure that treats patients who experience severe, excessive sweating, primarily in the armpit area.
What to expect with axillary hyperhidrosis surgery
Axillary hyperhidrosis surgery requires general anesthesia. This means the patient is unconscious for the duration of the procedure.
The surgeon first makes a small incision in the armpit. A small surgical tool called an arthroscopic shaver blade is then inserted to perform the procedure.
