Excessive feet sweating, otherwise known as Plantar Hyperhidrosis, is a common problem which often manifests itself in adolescence and sometimes early in childhood.
Plantar hyperhidrosis limits the kind of footwear worn – i.e. open sandals – and is often associated to fungal infections (onychomycosis, athlete’s foot), maceration of toes and an unpleasant odour known as bromhidrosis.
The surgical approach to plantar hyperhidrosis is the selective clamping of the lumbar sympathetic trunk. This procedure has emerged an excellent option as it is the most advanced and minimally invasive technique.
Yet it requires to be performed by highly experienced specialists. Dr. Davoli performs the lumbar clamping procedure with as high success rate as for upper body hyperhidrosis.
