In cooperation with other centers where surgery for hyperhidrosis is performed, we continue to analyze surgical outcomes to further improve the results of surgery. Dr. Gorenstein not only performs surgery for hyperhidrosis, but is well recognized as a leader in the field of Video Assisted Thoracic Surgery, and is the director of Minimally Invasive Thoracic Surgery at Columbia University Medical Center.
At the Center for Hyperhidrosis at Columbia University Medical Center, located in New York City, we have developed a multidisciplinary approach to the management of hyperhidrosis. Surgery very effectively eliminates hyperhidrosis, but there may be some unavoidable side effects. We believe that non-surgical methods to control hyperhidrosis should be tried before considering surgery. For that reason, our team includes not only Board Certified Thoracic Surgeons who specialize in minimally invasive thoracic surgery, but also Board Certified Dermatologists who are regarded amongst the best doctors in New York. Employing a team approach that offers both medical and surgical treatments, we believe all patients can obtain relief from symptoms.
There are many non-surgical alternatives to treat patients with hyperhidrosis. At the Center for Hyperhidrosis at Columbia University Medical Center, a team approach is used to evaluate and treat all patients with hyperhidrosis in New York and beyond. Under the guidance of a board certified dermatologist, a trial of topical remedies may be recommended if they have not yet been tried.
“I almost traveled to California to have ETS. I was so relieved to find ETS was available in New York at Columbia University Medical Center. The entire staff was very professional and caring from my first evaluation right through the entire procedure.”
“I no longer worry about meeting people. This procedure has dramatically changed my life. I have no regrets, and given the choice I would certainly do it again.”
“I have mild compensatory sweating, but that sure beats what I was like before surgery. I strongly recommend this to people with severe hand sweating.”
