Do you sweat excessively? Hyperhidrosis has a solution

Why do I sweat too much? Is it a common problem? Hyperhidrosis or excessive sweating is a pathology in which a person has a sweating problem in some part of his body, normally in the palms of the hands, armpits, feet or face. Dr. Diego Gonzalez has solved the problem of excessive sweating of the presenter of La Resistencia, David Broncano.

Sweating hands is a fairly common problem that “happens” to some people when they are nervous. However, excessive sweating can cause insecurity to those who suffer from it. Excessive sweating, called hyperhidrosis, is a condition in which the patient sweats excessively in any situation. It usually affects the hands, feet, face or armpits on both sides of the body.

The well-known Spanish presenter David Broncano, who throughout his career has constantly joked about his hand sweating problem, has decided to undergo surgery by Dr. Diego González Rivas to correct this problem. In fact, recently the surgeon from A Coruña visited Broncano’s program, who asked him about the possible solution to his problem: “We operate on you in the morning, with a five-millimeter incision and without sleeping, and in the afternoon you leave with dry hands”. In response to the presenter’s doubts, the Doctor explained how it works: “it is a matter of clipping a nerve, and it is totally reversible, it is a very simple operation that all thoracic surgeons perform”, he added.

How is excessive sweating or hyperhidrosis treated?

The technique that Dr. Diego Gonzalez Rivas has performed to correct David Broncano’s hyperhidrosis problem is endoscopic thoracic sympathectomy. This surgery is performed to compress the sympathetic nerves -in charge of sweating- to solve the problem of excessive sweating in the desired area.

It is a surgery that lasts approximately ten minutes per side, and being minimally invasive allows the patient to return home the same day of the intervention.

How is endoscopic thoracic sympathectomy performed to treat hyperhidrosis?

Once anesthesia or sedation has been administered to the patient, the surgery will proceed. First, the surgeon will make a couple of incisions under the chest through which he can introduce the endoscope and the necessary material to perform the surgery. Subsequently, an endoscope equipped with a microscopic camera is introduced, which will allow the surgeon to observe the area through a monitor.

Once the area to be operated on is reached, the remaining tools are introduced through the other incisions, and the ganglion responsible for the hyperhidrosis is compressed with a titanium clip, which immediately solves the problem. Once completed, the incisions are closed with stitches.
