In brief: Options

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 to consensus: http://goo.Gl/voqx5.

In brief: Find experienced MD

In a city, there is usually a doctor who has an interest in, and many patients with, excessively sweaty hands and feet.
That specialist can try various treatments with a patient to see what works best. Drysol (strong antiperspirant), beta-blocker medications, Botox injections, and galvanic stimulation (electricity) are some options. Some specialized surgeons cut the nerve that causes hand sweating.
