Pilonidal Cyst Removal Procedure

Pilonidal cyst removal is a surgical procedure that treats a pilonidal cyst, which develops near the tailbone. This condition can cause pain, swelling, and infection due to debris and hair trapped in a small tract beneath the skin. During this procedure, the surgeon will make an incision to drain the cyst and clean out any infected tissue. Sometimes, the entire cyst may need to be surgically excised to prevent recurrence.

When is This Procedure Necessary?

Pilonidal cyst removal is typically considered medically necessary when the cyst becomes infected or causes severe pain, discomfort, or complications. Complications can include abscess formation, recurrent infections, and drainage of pus from the cyst. If conservative treatments such as antibiotics and warm compresses fail to alleviate symptoms or prevent recurrence, surgical removal of the cyst may be considered medically necessary.

What To Expect

Patients will be under local or general anesthesia to ensure their comfort throughout the procedure. The surgeon will make a small incision to drain the pus from the cyst to reduce any discomfort and inflammation. After the procedure, it is normal for patients to experience discomfort in the region of the incision.

Patients are advised to refrain from strenuous activities for several weeks to allow the surgical site to heal properly. The doctor may prescribe pain medications to help alleviate any discomfort during this time. Keeping the incision site clean and dry is important to prevent infection, which can prolong the recovery process. Patients may also be instructed to avoid sitting for extended periods to reduce pressure on the surgical area.
