Detailed Answer:
Hi
Welcome to HCM!
I appreciate your concern towards the unresponsive treatments for Palmar hyperhidrosis.
The best option is to undergo ETS.
Well, endoscopic thoracic sympathectomy (ETS) OR video assisted thoracic surgery (VATS) is the treatment of choice and gold standard when all other methods like Iontophoresis, Injection Botulinum toxin failed to show any improvement.
It is done under general anesthesia and patient stays for 12 - 24 hours after surgery ( depends on individuals ).

Complications are minimum in the expert hands: these include compensatory sweating (induction of sweating in previously unaffected areas of the body), gustatory sweating, recurrence of hyperhidrosis (due to left behind nerve of Kuntz or aberrant nerves) , and the sequelae of general anesthetic drugs.

I hope your doubts have been clarified upto your satisfaction.
Should you need more information please feel free to send the queries.

Take care, wishing you best of your health.
