First evaluation: If hyperhydrosis, surgery can be quite successful for appropriate candidates. While done often by experienced thoracic surgeons (vats), it is chest surgery (major surgery). There are risks and benefits. Appropriate candidates should be selected. This link may help: http://goo.Gl/rsl68 this link to consensus: http://goo.Gl/isann.

First and most important is appropriate discussion with family physician. This will enable proper diagnosis and determination of best treatment. If indicated, this will allow appropriate referral to qualified thoracic surgeon to perform surgical cure. There are risks and benefits. I encourage individuals to review web links above.

See doctor: You may have hyperhidrosis which can affect both hands and feet. This is excess sympathetic nervous function. This can be corrected by thoracoscopic sympathectomy. First see a neurologist to be assessed to see if you are a candidate for procedure.
