Excessive armpit sweating affects 1.4% of the U.S. population, and can be extremely disabling. Affected individuals are restricted in occupation, dress, social activities, and the condition is disruptive in many aspects of daily living. Recent introduction of the Delfin Vapometer which reliably measures the rate of sweating has demonstrated the effectiveness of a minor surgical procedure that offers a reliable cure: Suction-assisted arthroscopic shaving. The procedure takes 1-2 hours, and general anesthesia is preferred. A small opening is made adjacent to the armpit, and skin is elevated. The sweat glands are then shaved away and suctioned with a specialized arthroscopic device. A drain and bandage are applied, but both are removed the day after surgery. Resolution of excessive sweating is instant, return to work averages four days, and post surgical Vapometer readings are performed 1-3 months afterward to measure effectiveness of the procedure. Relief should be permanent, and cost of the procedure, including anesthesia, surgery center, and post surgical care is about $6000.
