    The diagnosis of Pilonidal sinus require a physical exam & doctor may ask few questions about the symptoms, what supplements or medications you take and from how long you had this problem.


    The treatment of Pilonidal Sinus depends on the nature and the type of cyst. You can easily find the best clinics, treatments, centres, and doctors in Hyderabad.

    At the early stage, preventive treatment can be done which mainly includes a healthy and hygienic lifestyle. You should not ignore any early symptoms. If you even notice a single symptom, visit a doctor as early as possible and get yourself examined.

    If you feel slight pain and irritation in the Sinus, doctors will prescribe you a broad spectrum antibiotic which is used to stop and prevent bacterial infections in the Sinus. However, this treatment may not heal the sinus, but it will give you relief from the discomfort caused by the infection.

    This procedure is applied when Pilonidal Sinus/Cysts get filled with mucus or pus. First of all, a local anesthetic will be given to you, then the doctor will open the cyst and will clean away hair, blood and pus present in the cyst. The doctor will pack the wound with a sterile dressing to get it healed. The wound usually heals in the time span of 4–10 weeks.

    In this treatment, the doctor will first give you a local anesthetic. Followed by injection of chemical compounds containing phenol which is used as an antiseptic. This procedure will have to be done several times or until the cyst gets hard and closed. However, Phenol injection treatment has a very high recurrence rate.

    Laser surgery is regarded as the most effective treatment for Pilonidal Sinus. In this least invasive treatment, a particular laser fiber is used to send high-intensity light energy into the Sinus which destroys the wound and collapses the infected tract. Before this, the patient is provided with local anesthesia to remove the pit and hair strands in the cyst. This is done through a small incision. In many cases, no incision is performed at all; the laser treatment alone is used to heal the cyst. Laser surgery treatment can also be carried out if there is more than one cyst or Sinus tract.

    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."

    According to certain reports and surveys, more than 1 million cases of Pilonidal Sinus are reported every year all over the country. Different age groups affected are:

    • Babies (0-2yrs) – very rare
    • Toddlers (3-5yrs) – rare
    • Children (6-13yrs) – rare
    • Teenager (14-19yrs) – rare
    • Young Adults (20-40yrs) – common
    • Adults (41-60yrs) – common
    • Senior (60+ yrs.) – common

    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.
