    Pristyn Care specialists will perform a brief diagnosis for pilonidal sinus, the best way is, to begin with, a physical examination.

    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 and discomforting skin condition that must be attended at the earliest in order to avoid the severe symptoms of infected pilonidal sinus.

    Pilonidal sinus can cause the following complications when left untreated or not treated properly:

    • The pilonidal cyst is highly prone to bacterial infections. When the cyst gets infected, it can turn into an abscess that can cause unbearable stinging pain. Such a condition can make it unimaginable to even sit or stand properly.
    • The infection of the cyst can spread to other parts of the body too. In serious cases, the infection may even enter the bloodstream and result in systemic infection or sepsis.
    • Recurring or prolonged pilonidal sinus increases the risk of a type of skin cancer called squamous cell carcinoma.
    • In rare severe cases, pilonidal sinus can even cause anal fistula. Anal fistula is an infected tunnel that occurs between the anus and the skin located around the anus and the rectum. Such a complicated case in which the pilonidal sinus results in fistula is known as pilonidal fistula-in-ano. So far, there are only 6 such cases reported of fistula-in-ano.

    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.
