Excessive Sweating - Hyperhidrosis
This website is brought to you by Doctor Rafael Reisfeld, MD, FACS who is one of the worlds most dedicated, experienced and prominent leaders in Hyperhidrosis today.
Excessive Sweating also known as hyperhidrosis is a condition that affects aproximately 1% - 2% of the world population. This condition can present itself in the form of sweaty palms, hands, armpits, face, feet and or blushing. Hyperhidrosis can adversely affect people in their every day to day lives both socially and functionally. Fortunately due to advances in medicine there is a permanent surgical solution to hyperhidrosis known as ETS (Endoscopic Thoracic Sympathectomy) being practiced by Dr.Reisfeld in Los Angeles. The surgical procedure takes about 45 minutes and is done on an outpatient basis allowing most patients to walk out of the medical center within 2 hours of the operation.
We work hard to keep this site updated on a weekly basis with new information. It is our goal to help, inform, and educate everyone about the condition. Advances as well as new information regarding hyperhidrosis are being made all the time and we will try to relay this information via the web site. Have a look at the frequently asked questions section for in depth answers to frequent and interesting questions.
Over the years Dr. Reisfeld became a leading world expert in the treatment of hyperhidrosis. He is continually engaged in very active practice which includes not only the operations but a steady follow-up as well as comparing results with other leading surgeons around the world.
