Jiri A.Konecny
DO
As a Thoracic and Cardiovascular surgeon, Dr. Jiri Konecny has been providing treatment and cure of excessive sweating  (hyperhidrosis) in Orange County in Santa Ana and San Jose, CA.  Recently, the Center has acquired the Harmonic Scalpel - a State-of-the-Art cutting instrument, which utilizes high-frequency ultrasonic energy (55,500 vibrations per second) to allow precise dissection of tissues at relatively low temperature, without damage to surrounding tissues (other nerves, etc). This instrument permits Sympathectomy at a higher level of the sympathetic chain, thus expanding the indications of this surgery to facial sweating and blushing in addition to hand and armpit sweating. Each patient has to be evaluated individually to determine if he/she is a  candidate for the ETS and what level of the sympathetic chain needs to be addressed. Dr. Konecny was awarded in 2004-2005 "America's Top Surgeons" by the Consumers Research Council of America.

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.
