Many ask: “why should I travel to Los Angeles to see Doctor Rafael Reisfeld?”

Doctor Reisfeld

When it comes to this important life changing procedure, you want to be in the hands of someone among the world’s leading hyperhidrosis surgeons. Dr. Reisfeld has performed more ETS procedures than any other doctor in the United States. He has dedicated his entire practice to hyperhidrosis, pioneering new techniques, and advancing critical research.

He is the only known surgeon in the world to be an expert at all three major procedures (Hands, Feet, Armpits). This gives him unparalleled expertise in performing these surgeries for each patient. Dr. Reisfeld has authored numerous peer reviewed medical hyperhidrosis papers, the most recent in 2013. He has been featured in newspapers, magazines, and television reports such as CBS, Fox News, Newsweek, and others nationwide.

Dr. Reisfeld takes the time to speak with each and every patient before the surgery instead of staff or personnel who are not experts in this field. We encourage you to contact our office, and take the first step to stopping excessive sweating and start living!

Dr. Rafael Reisfeld is a Board-Certified surgeon, member of the American College of Surgeons, diplomat of the American Board of Surgery, and known worldwide as one of the very best doctors in the field of hyperhidrosis. From the beginning of his involvement with hyperhidrosis, Dr. Reisfeld approached it in a very methodical and compassionate way to help those affected with this condition. Procedures are done at the world class Khalili Center in Bevery Hills, Ca.

At times Dr. Reisfeld gets calls from around the world about sympathectomies done by inexperienced surgeons. It behooves patients to be very thorough and careful about who they choose to do their surgery. Experience and knowledge should be key factors. Unfortunately, in the United States, patients are directed to go to a surgeon in their medical insurance “network.” Those surgeons are not always are familiar with the problem, and as a result, unexpected and or unfortunate life changing results can occur.

We think it is important to understand that the field of the surgical treatment for hyperhidrosis has undergone major changes and improvements over the last two decades. Even though this condition afflicts between 1 and 2 percent of the world’s population, it still remains a very little known subject to the majority of the medical community and patients alike. There is a lot of misinformation out there, making it hard for the average person suffering from hyperhidrosis to get the right advice.
