Pilonidal Cyst Specialists
Pioneered by Dr. Nasseri & Dr. Barnajian
Cutting Edge Pilonidal Treatment
When you come to the Pilonidal Institute for treatment, we evaluate if there is an associated abscess (pocket of pus). If so, the area around the abscess is numbed in the office and the pus is drained under sterile conditions. Thereafter, the patient is given instructions about wound care and prescribed a course of antibiotics. He or she follows up within a week or two for evaluation of the wound and to discuss a more definitive treatment of the pilonidal disease as described below.
If an abscess is not present and patient is presenting with a noninfected pilonidal cyst and sinus tract, Dr Nasseri and Dr Barnajian describe in detail the importance of an elective outpatient procedure, whereby the pilonidal cyst and sinus are completely removed and the wound is reconstructed and closed in a cosmetically favored fashion. Their unique, cutting edge flap based technique utilized in this operation is further discussed below.
What is a Pilonidal Cyst?
A pilonidal cyst (sacrococcygeal fistula) is an abnormal pocket in the skin that usually locates itself above the buttocks near the tailbone. The cyst looks much like a pimple and commonly contains hair and skin debris. If the cyst becomes infected it can result in a really painful abscess that requires clinical attention.
