    Surgeons performing pilonidal sinus on patient



    A specialist will diagnose a pilonidal sinus by a physical examination. A pilonidal cyst looks such as a lump, swelling, or abscess at the cleft of the buttocks. It is a draining or bleeding area (sinus). The location of the cyst at the top of the buttocks, and sometimes blood tests may be required for diagnosis. There is no need for imaging tests in cases of pilonidal sinus.


    An infected pilonidal sinus can be very uncomfortable and painful. Though non-medical treatment like draining or using home medicines may help, they may not be able to remove the cyst completely.

    Thus, doctors often recommend laser pilonidal sinus surgery. During the surgery, the laser fiber is used to open the cyst and drain it properly. After the cyst is cleaned, the laser is used to ablate the sinus tract during extraction, thereby closing the opening. It is then left to heal naturally as there won’t be any opening left to stitch.

    The entire surgery will be painless and scarless. You won’t require hospitalization and go back home on the same day.

    In Our Doctor's Words

    What-Dr. Pankaj Sareen-Say-About-Pilonidal Sinus-Treatment

    Dr. Pankaj Sareen

    MBBS, MS - General Surgery

    20 Years Experience

    "Pilonidal Sinus is a fairly common condition among people. It usually happens because of improper hygiene, physical inactivity, and long sitting hours. Once formed, it will keep recurring and oozing of pus, debris and at times- hair particles. This is why, a proper cleaning and removal through a catheter is the only final solution. I suggest you seek a good general surgeon/ proctologist at the earliest or the pain only severes and you risk forming other anorectal diseases such as infections and anal fistula."

    Why is Pilonidal Sinus Treatment Necessary?

    Pilonidal sinus is a painful skin condition that cannot be left untreated for a long time as it can have serious repercussions. If proper and timely medical attention is not given, the symptoms can aggravate and make the patients’ life miserable. Not only this, but pilonidal sinus can also result in a number of complications including:

    • The cyst on the buttocks is prone to microbial attack. When this happens, the cyst can get infected and over time, turn into an abscess.
    • The infection present in the cyst can travel to other parts of the body as well. In severe cases, the infection may travel through the bloodstream and cause systemic infection or sepsis.
    • Pilonidal sinus is known to increase the risk of a type of skin cancer, squamous cell carcinoma.
    • Pilonidal sinus can even result in anal fistula in a very rare and serious case. Anal fistula is an infected passage that forms between the anus and the skin located around the anus and the rectum. Such a complicated condition in which the pilonidal sinus causes fistula is called as pilonidal fistula-in-ano. One of the recent studies reflect that only 6 such cases have been reported till now.

    As it may be clear, pilonidal sinus can turn quite serious and therefore, timely medical care becomes necessary. So, it is better to get in touch with a doctor as soon as the initial symptoms of pilonidal sinus start to show.

    Different surgical treatments for pilonidal sinus

    Here are the different surgical treatments for pilonidal sinus treatment:

    • Laser pilonidal sinus treatment- Laser surgery for pilonidal sinus is the most effective treatment for pilonidal sinus. During the procedure, the proctologist uses a high-intensity laser beam to close off the sinus tract. The doctor removes the entire pit of the pilonidal sinus so that the infection does not recur. It is an easier and higher precision procedure to perform as compared to the earlier mentioned types of open surgery. The treatment procedure requires only one day of dressing as there are no wounds left behind to heal. The laser energy also promotes the faster healing of the site of the surgery. Thus, it takes a very short time to completely recover from laser surgery for the pilonidal sinus.
    • Incision and drainage- Incision and drainage is an open surgical procedure recommended mostly when the cyst becomes infected. It is performed with local anesthesia to make the affected area numb. The surgeon makes an incision in the cyst to drain the infectious fluid and pus. The doctor packs the hole with gauze and leaves it open to heal. It can take up to 4-6 weeks to heal the cyst completely.
    • Pilonidal cystectomy- Pilonidal cystectomy is the surgical removal of the entire pilonidal cyst. The treatment is performed after administering general/regional anesthesia. The surgeon makes a cut to remove the affected skin along with underlying hair follicles, tissues, and dead cells. If required, the doctor packs the area with surgical gauze. In cases where the infection is severe, the doctor places a tube to drain the fluid from the cyst. The tube is removed when the entire fluid is drained from the cyst.

    Are there any risks and complications involved during pilonidal sinus surgery?

    If performed under the guidance and supervision of a trained proctologist, surgical treatment for pilonidal sinus will not cause any risks or complications. But, like any other surgery, there might be some complications, although not severe. Some of them are:

    • Trauma and bleeding to the site – If the surgery is not performed efficiently, there can be a chance of the anal tissues getting injured. Trauma and injury to the anal tissues can even lead to bleeding. If the surgery is performed by an experienced surgeon, the chances of any injury can be cut down drastically.
    • Infection – Like any other surgery, infection is a common side effect/ complication in case of pilonidal sinus surgery too. Infection can lead to nausea and vomiting in the person. Infection, however, is not a very serious problem and can be treated with medicines. The chances of infection in case of open surgery is much higher than in laser surgery.
    • Squamous cell carcinoma – A type of skin cancer that occurs due to uncontrolled growth of the squamous cells. The condition is not very common but not unheard of. To prevent such complications, it is extremely important that the surgery is performed by an experienced and trained surgeon.
