Dee Anna Glaser, M.D., Director
Excessive sweating beyond what is needed to control body temperature is called hyperhidrosis and affects nearly 3 percent of the population. Most commonly, excessive sweating occurs at focal areas such as the underarms, hands, feet, forehead or groin. This disorder can have a profound impact on daily life, making even simple tasks and interactions difficult.
Fortunately, there are a number of effective treatment options available. Evaluation by knowledgeable medical providers is an important step to managing the sweating problem. Dee Anna Glaser, M.D., and the team of professionals in the Hyperhidrosis Clinic can provide a thorough evaluation and discussion of treatment options that are best for your type of sweating disorder.
The SLUCare hyperhidrosis treatment team includes Rosemary King, PA-C, clinical research physicians and Jane Romano, R.N., as well as Carla Hendrickson, R.M.A., and Jayne Donner, R.M.A., who are iontophoresis technicians. Treatments include: a variety of topical over-the-counter and prescription medications; oral prescription medication that reduces sweating; iontophoresis treatment of the hands and feet (soaking the areas in a water bath with weak electric current); injections of botulinum toxin (Botox®) into the affected areas; surgical suction removal of underarm sweat glands; and microwave destruction of underarm sweat glands.
In addition, Dr. Glaser has focused on improving the understanding and treatment of sweating disorders, and regularly offers patients the option of participation in the latest hyperhidrosis clinical trials. A world-renowned expert in the treatment of hyperhidrosis, Dr. Glaser is the principal investigator of dozens of groundbreaking studies evaluating treatments for excessive sweating.
