Dr. Joćo B. V. Duarte

Belo Horizonte, Brazil

Since 1988, Dr. Joćo B. V. Duarte has been the partner of Dr. Peter Kux, and they have performed more than 7,000 ETS surgeries. Dr. Kux is a celebrated pioneer in the field who began performing the ETS surgical technique in 1947 and has been further developing ETS in Brazil since 1954. His technique is now being used by other ETS surgeons around the world. Based on their vast and long experience in this field, in recent years, Dr. Duarte and Dr. Kux have developed a successful revolutionary technique that almost eliminates the chance of occurrence of compensatory sweating. With their new technique, performed on an outpatient basis, they have treated palmar, axillar, and facial hyperhidrosis, with a chance to reduce plantar hyperhidrosis in 94% of the patients operated on, when it is associated with the other conditions. Facial Blushing, Complex Regional Pain Syndrome, and Vasomotor Rhinitis can also be treated successfully with this new method. Usually, patients are able to return to their normal activities the day after the surgery. You can now have surgery in Brazil by one of the world's most experienced ETS surgeons.
