Overview and Indications

Endoscopic Sympathectomy is a minimally invasive procedure that treats conditions caused by the destruction of portions of the sympathetic nerve trunk, such as heavy sweating in the palms, face, underarms and feet. It can also be used to treat heavy blushing and chronic pain conditions. In this procedure, the surgeon clamps or cuts the sympathetic nerve chain, which runs along a person’s spine.
