I am more confident, have less anxiety and can truly focus

Dr Reisfeld performed my endoscopic lumbar sympathectomy September 22, 2015. I am so ecstatic with the results!

1 week and 1 year post ELS surgery
As you can see in these photos the photo right after the operation shows some redness in the scar which is the normal process of scar formation. It is red due to the suture material. A year later you can see how the scar modulated/healed itself to an almost not noticeable state.

For as long as I can remember I had palmar and plantar hyperhidrosis. In 2001 I had ETS for my excessive hand sweating. The surgery was successful for my hands but didn’t do anything to remedy my excessive foot sweating. I resolved to try treatments that I had tried before without success i.e. Drysol, Robinal, and BOTOX® Cosmetic injections. I thought these treatments were my only options. Then I found Dr Reisfeld and read about his extensive experience with ELS and how patients were no longer having to alter their lives because of plantar hyperhidrosis. I was finally hopeful that there was something that could rid me of this embarrassing, life altering condition.

It has been a year since my surgery. I am no longer afraid of falling when I walk across a floor without socks. I do not have to take an extra pair of shoes with me when I leave the house because I will sweat through the first pair. I can sit in a meeting with confidence knowing that I can walk out without slipping in my shoes. I took my children do an amusement park this summer and actually wore sandals! I am more confident, have less anxiety and can truly focus better because the detriments of hyperhidrosis are not always in the back of my mind.

Thank you Dr. Reisfeld and everyone at The Center for Hyperhidrosis. You have truly changed my life for the better. I only wish that this would have been an option for me many years ago.

With sincere gratitude,

Kim Y
