RA Fischer's 'The Fischer'
vs. ETS Surgery
This surgical procedure is invasive, especially for axillary hyperhidrosis patients, where the surgeon may need to deflate your lung to sever the sympathetic nerve. Yes, you read that correctly - deflate your lung.
Now, let's think about how this compares to the non-invasive, at-home iontophoresis method.
COMPENSATORY SWEATING WITH ETS SURGERY
Consider this scenario: You seek medical help for excessive hand sweating and opt for ETS surgery. The outcome seems promising – your hands no longer sweat profusely. However, there’s an unexpected issue: compensatory sweating. This condition means that now you experience excessive sweating in other parts of your body.
Our Treatment Specialists at RA Fischer Co. have encountered numerous patients who regret their decision to undergo ETS surgery. In contrast, iontophoresis is non-surgical, with no serious side-effects and no compensatory sweating.
HOW DOES ETS SURGERY WORK?
ETS surgery entails a procedure aimed at disrupting the transmission of nerve signals from sympathetic ganglia, which send fibers to the sweat-producing areas.
Surgeons achieve this by either eliminating the ganglia or severing the sympathetic trunk, using techniques such as electrocautery or laser surgery.
Now compare this to RA Fischer Co.’s iontophoresis treatment, which simply requires placing your hands in two trays of water for 15-20 minutes. No surgeons, hospitals, or recovery required.
lifestyle impact and risks of ets surgery
Beyond the financial burden, let’s talk about the toll ETS surgery can take on your lifestyle.
Randy Choi, co-founder of the Thompson Tee, discusses his experience on his company’s website. He lists compensatory sweating (aka sweating in new places), psychological fatigue, skin problems, and slowed metabolism among the chief side-effects he experienced.
Many individuals who undergo ETS surgery often report experiencing significant and life-altering complications. Other than compensatory sweating, ETS surgery can change bodily functions such as:
The ETS procedure is surgery, which means it is inherently expensive. You may anticipate that your insurance will shoulder the expenses, but insurance providers will typically insist on exhausting every other available treatment option before considering surgery as a covered option.
