Pilonidal Sinus Surgery Cost


What Is Pilonidal Sinus Surgery?

A pilonidal sinus (PNS) is a small space in the skin that occurs in the sacrococcygeal region at the top end of the buttocks. It is a chronic skin infection resulting in cysts, abscesses, and severe pain. A pilonidal cyst gives out pus, blood, and a foul odour; it contains an ingrown hair follicle, dead skin cells, and dirt.

Pilonidal sinus disease is common in men and young adults. It is common in individuals who have very little physical activity in their everyday lives (such as cab drivers), are overweight, or have an existing skin injury.

How To Prepare For Pilonidal Sinus Surgery?

  1. The pilonidal sinus operative procedure does not require an overnight hospital stay, and you will be discharged on the same day.
  2. No significant preparation is required for this surgery, but you need to do specific surgical tests to know your general health.
  3. Wear loose and comfortable clothes because tight-fitting clothes will hurt you after the operation.
  4. If you take any other drugs or supplements or have any health problems, let your doctor know about it.

How Is Pilonidal Sinus Surgery Done?

  1. If you are experiencing recurrent PNS infection or more than one sinus tract, your doctor will recommend a surgical procedure.
  2. Your surgeon will inject a local or general anaesthetic, depending on the operation. First, the surgeon will make an incision to expose the lesion and clean all the pus and debris. Once the surgery is over, the wounds will be sewn shut by the doctor.
  3. After the operation, your surgeon will explain the precautions you need to take to change the dressings and will advise shaving the site when required to prevent hair growth into the wound.

Pilonidal Sinus Surgery Techniques

There are two different operative methods to treat PNS:

  • Wide excision of pilonidal sinus - It involves excising out the skin section containing the sinus, leaving the wound open and closing it with a dressing. With this method, the recurrence of sinus infection is less, but the operative wound will take a prolonged time to heal.
  • Excision and primary closure of a pilonidal sinus - It involves excising the damaged skin and closing the wound with stitches. The wound will heal quickly with this method, but the recurrence will be more significant.
