The Center for hyperhidrosis at Columbia University was established in the early 1990s, and has been a leader in the field hyperhidrosis treating thousands of patients over the years. Our commitment to this disorder is evident in our team approach to hyperhidrosis. We ensure that patients are fully assessed to exclude secondary causes of hyperhidrosis, and have access to all possible medical therapies. We strongly believe that all medical therapies should be tried, before considering surgical approaches.


Dr. Lyall Gorenstein

Board-certified Thoracic surgeon and Director of the Center for Hyperhidrosis at Columbia University Medical Center. Dr. Gorenstein is an assistant professor of surgery at Columbia University Medical Center, and is the Director of Minimally Invasive Thoracic surgery. Dr. Gorenstein performs many complex video-assisted thoracic procedures aside from ETS. Being an experienced thoracic surgeon is advantageous when performing ETS, especially if unusual anatomy or adhesions from prior surgery is encountered. Dr. Gorenstein has contributed significantly to the field of hyperhidrosis, by advocating for medical therapies prior to considering ETS, and for being one of the first to perform ETS–T3, rather than multilevel sympathectomy for hyperhidrosis. He also believes in performing ETS in select patients with severe blushing.


Dr. Marc Grossman

Professor of Clinical Dermatology at Columbia University Medical Center, directs the non-surgical approaches to hyperhidrosis. Dr. Grossman is board-certified in both dermatology and internal medicine, and has experience with all methods of non-surgical therapy for palmar hyperhidrosis.
