About 2% of the population in our country suffer from severe sweating of the hands, armpits, feet or face. The disorder typically affects teenagers or young adults, who do not have any other medical problems. When conservative treatment fails,
ETS (endoscopic thoracic sympathectomy) can offer long-lasting cure. The minimally invasive procedure is performed by thoracoscopy and the sympathetic nerve clipped bilaterally. Prof. Bischof introduced the clipping technique in Austria and is one of the leading surgeons in the world treating patients with hyperhidrosis and facial blushing.
He recently served as president of the International Society of Sympathetic Surgeons (ISSS).
