Pilonidal disease refers to a condition in which pilonidal cysts or abscesses routinely form in the cleft between the buttocks. Pilonidal disease can be caused by a combination of anatomical and lifestyle factors, and the team at NYBG Colorectal can help you address your issues and find an end to your discomfort.
Treating Pilonidal Disease
The treatment for your pilonidal issues will depend on a variety of factors. Addressing the issue early on enables us to perform a simple, in-office removal procedure during which Dr. Nandra can drain the cyst, which gives it the opportunity to heal on its own, from the inside out.
If you have recurring pilonidal disease, a procedure like the Bascom procedure can be used to eliminate the presence of the cleft between your buttocks. This will prevent the issue from recurring again in the future.
