The Latest in Hyperhidrosis and Facial Blushing

Every two years the International Society of Sympathectomy Surgeons comes together

They comprise of a group of clinicians predominantly surgeons, from all over the world. They come together every second year to discuss “what’s new” in the management of hyperhidrosis, facial blushing and all matters relating to Sympathectomy procedures. This year’s meeting was held in the city of Santiago, Chile, a breathtakingly beautiful city at the foot of the Andes.

Over 100 enthusiastic registrants were present to share ideas and discuss recent advances. The important role sympathectomy plays in treating hyperhidrosis and facial blushing was confirmed.

Various opinions in relation to the technique ie ablation or clipping of the ganglia, and the precise level of intervention made for excellent and fruitful discussions, yet again there was no consensus.

I found a presentation on laparoscopic lumbar sympathectomy for plantar hyperhidrosis most interesting, and a technique which is safe, effective and certainly has merit with regard to reducing hospital stay and recovery period. My colleague in Los Angeles has considerable experience and expertise in this procedure, and I intend incorporating this into my practice.

There were two interesting presentations on the surgical treatment of compensatory hyperhidrosis, undoubtedly the most feared complication of sympathectomy. What a major advance if this adverse event could be eliminated. Papers were presented on alternative treatments for hyperhidrosis. It confirmed the pre-eminent role miraDry has in managing axillary hyperhidrosis and showed how we, at North Western Vascular are at the cutting edge of hyperhidrosis management. I enjoyed the interaction with my international colleagues and learnt much from this conference.

I was driving home this morning feeling unimaginably happy. Choosing to have surgery was the best decision I’ve ever made. The first time I met you, I was overcome by how completely you understood what I was going through. I think what you do is unbelievably selfless and amazing. You have literally changed my life.

It isn’t even these major things that I am most grateful for. It is the much simpler things – going out to dinner without feelings of stress and anxiety, holding hands, getting my nails done… Read More

Before this operation, I wore gloves to job interviews, I skipped church to avoid the peace-be-with-yous as the thought of shaking someone’s hand made me cringe and my tops and dresses were always black to avoid stains from under my arms. This operation has changed my life forever, it has built my confidence up and has allowed me to take up new hobbies like dancing.

I just wanted to say a massive thank you to Mr Roger Bell and his team for allowing me to live my life sweat free… Read more
