In brief: Yes

Thorascopic sympathectomy for hyperhidrosis can be very effective.

In brief: Performed this surge

I used to perform bilateral thoracoscopic sympathectomies for palmar hyperhidrosis (also for excessive facial blushing and facial sweating) .
.. Yes, successful ... Most common side-effect is compensatory sweating on the trunk, usually acceptable ... Occasionally unacceptable, and can be reversed with nerve graft.
