    What you need to know about Cervical Sympathectomy in South Korea

    Sweating Hands

    Sweating in the hands, face, scalp, and arm is controlled by a sympathetic nerve, which can be found in your upper chest and lower neck. A cervical sympathectomy is a procedure to treat problems along the sympathetic nerve. You may need to undergo this procedure if you have hyperhidrosis, facial blushing, some chronic pain conditions, and Raynaud phenomenon. 

    What does a Cervical Sympathectomy Procedure Involve?

    During cervical sympathectomy, you will be given a general anesthetic so you will be asleep throughout the procedure. Your surgeon starts by making several incisions on one side of your chest below the underarm to insert a tube containing a camera as well as a tiny surgical tool. Using this tiny surgical tool, your doctor will cut or clamp the sympathetic nerve at the right spot, depending on your exact condition.

    How Long Should I Stay in South Korea for a Cervical Sympathectomy Procedure?

    You are required to stay in the hospital for one to two days, but you may need to stay in South Korea for about a week. During your stay in the country, you need to attend a follow-up checkup where your surgeon will check your overall condition.

    Cervical sympathectomy is a generally safe procedure with a high success rate. However, it is important that you talk to your doctor about the side effects and risks of the procedure before your surgery. The side effects and risks may include bleeding, pain, infection, more sweating in other parts of the body, collapsed lung, pneumonia, stroke or heart attack during the procedure, the need of a breathing machine for an extended period, injuries to nerves and blood vessels, burning sensation, Horner’s syndrome, weakness in the arms, and surgery did not relieve the problem.

    Are there Alternatives to Cervical Sympathectomy Procedures in South Korea?

If you have hyperhidrosis, you may opt for a procedure called microwave therapy or sweat gland removal. For the Raynaud phenomenon (Raynaud’s disease), your doctor may suggest medications (calcium channel blockers and vasodilators) or chemical injection. 

    What Should You Expect Before and After the Procedure

    Before cervical sympathectomy, you may experience a disease that causes you to sweat a lot, or some areas of your body feel numb and cold in response to stress or cold temperature. After the procedure, your symptoms should be relieved and you may be cured of this condition.
