Pilonidal Sinus looks like a boil on the skin. It is mostly found in the obese men and women having a hairy body. Pilonidal sinus occurs at the crack of the buttocks just near the tail bone in 80% of the patients while 20% of the patients can have a pilonidal cyst in the armpit or at both the places. In Pilonidal Sinus the body hair start to grow inwards and form a bundle of hair inside the skin. This causes pus formation and the pus starts to come out of the opening which looks like a small hole on the skin. The patients normally visit a physician or an orthopaedician who prescribe antibiotics for the same. Sometimes the antibiotics are able to dry up the pus but the problem is not eradicated as the hair bundles inside the skin remain intact. When the patient visits a surgeon the correct diagnosis is made and the surgeon prescribes an open surgery which requires bed rest for several weeks. Since most of the patients are either studying or working, it is not possible for them to take time off for such an extended period. They then start looking for better options for the treatment of pilonidal sinus. Our doctors in Gurgaon have developed a special surgical technique which doesn't require any bed rest and the surgery can be done under local anaesthesia.
In pilonidal sinus surgery the surgeon has to remove the hair follicles trapped inside the sinus channel and also destroy the inner surface of the channel so that scarring followed by healing takes place and the channel is closed so that recurrence does not take place. No dressing is required for Laser Surgery as there is no incision given.
Most of the General Surgeons would give a long incision to cut open the sinus channel and then remove the hair follicles and scrap the walls of the channel. After this they would not put stitches to close the wound and simply do dressing on the wound. With the passage of time the wound slowly fills up and regular dressing has to be done. In this procedure the recovery time may extend to several months.
In Laser Surgery for Pilonidal Sinus the Laser Energy is emitted to burn the internal walls of the sinus tract so that scarring takes place and ultimately the healing process makes the walls of the channel to collapse and close the channel tract.
The hair follicles accumulated inside the pilonidal sinus are cleaned using gauge piece during the surgery and then the laser energy is used. We are using a combination procedure of Vatsyayann Technique and Laser Technique which makes the procedure much more safer and the chances of recurrence are greatly reduced. The technique used by Ayurvedic doctors called Ksharsutra is a very slow technique as the medicated thread has to be kept in the sinus tract for 6-7 days and the same thing has to be repeated 5-6 times. This means that the complete treatment takes close to 2 months. In the Laser Surgery for Pilonidal Sinus our surgeons at Gurgaon would finish the procedure in less than 30 mintues and the patient goes home within 2 hours. No bed rest is required and the patient can commence normal routine from the day of the surgery itself.
