Hyperhidrosis Treatments in Los Angeles

Hyperhidrosis is unique in that many of its effects are psychological and emotional. Excessive sweating can wreak havoc on your daily life. Shoes can fill up with sweat, t-shirts can be soaked, and game controllers could be left soggy after just a few minutes of video games — each could cause immense embarrassment. Treatment for excessive sweating will not only correct the biological problems but also the emotional aspects as well.

Hyperhidrosis treatment performed at La Peer Health Systems includes a minimally invasive surgery called Thoracoscopic Sympathectomy. The highly technical nature of the procedure requires advanced knowledge in minimally invasive thoracic surgery. For this reason, a thoracic surgeon is ideally equipped to perform hyperhidrosis surgery with the best results and the lowest risk of complications. At La Peer Health Systems, our thoracic surgeons are leading experts in their field and have even edited the internationally acclaimed medical textbook “Atlas of Minimally Invasive Thoracic Surgery (VATS).”


La Peer Health Systems employs renowned thoracic surgeon Dr. Ali Mahtabifard, leading expert in minimally invasive thoracic surgery and the comprehensive management of hyperhidrosis. If you suffer from excessive sweating that interferes with your daily activities, please contact our Los Angeles thoracic surgeons right away at (855) 360-9119.
