What is Pilonidal Cyst Laser Surgery?

Laser surgery for pilonidal cyst involves using laser energy to obliterate the chronic cyst capsule lining deep within a pilonidal cyst. This procedure is designed to eradicate the cyst while minimizing scarring and post-operative discomfort. It’s a cutting-edge alternative to traditional surgical methods that involve general anesthesia, extensive cutting and stitching. This method is efficient and also less stressful for our patients, promising a quicker return to daily activities. Indeed, one of Dr. Kamrava’s patients played an 18-hole round of golf the next day, another a full competitive volley ball game within 48 hours, and another flew home to Portugal within 24 hours.

  • Are looking for a minimally invasive treatment option.

How is Laser Pilonidal Cyst Surgery Performed?

Dr. Allen Kamrava and our skilled team are experts in laser pilonidal cyst removal. Here’s a brief overview of how the procedure is conducted:

  • Preparation: The area around the cyst is shaved, cleaned and sterilized.
  • Anesthesia: Local anesthesia is administered for patient comfort.
  • Cyst Cleaning: The hair and debris within the cyst is removed fully
  • Laser Treatment: A laser fiber is inserted through a small incision, and laser energy is directed at the cyst capsule to burn it and allow the body to begin the natural healing process.

What to Expect Before and On the Day of Laser Pilonidal Cyst Surgery?

Before the procedure, Dr. Allen Kamrava will meet you for a comprehensive consultation – this can be performed in person, or virtually. During this time, we will go over your medical history, the nature of your condition, and the most effective treatment options for you. On the day of the surgery:

  1. Arrive at the clinic a bit early to complete any necessary paperwork.
  2. Dr. Kamrava will review the steps of the procedure with you, again and answer any questions
  3. The area of the pilonidal cyst will be shaved and numbed with local anesthetic.
  4. The laser surgery will then be performed. The entire procedure takes about 15-20 minutes.

What to Expect After Laser Pilonidal Cyst Surgery?

Most patients report that the pain after laser surgery is about a 4 out of 10 for a day or two, and very tolerable (worst reported has been 8 out of 10). The cyst will drain fluid after treatment for 2-3 weeks, and the small holes (between 2 – 5 mm in diameter) will heal between 1 – 2 months from procedure. Dr. Kamrava provides each patient with a custom home care kit for care and cleaning as it heals. Most patients return to their daily routines the next day, if not within a few days. We’ll also schedule follow-up appointments to monitor your healing process. Our team is always available for any questions or concerns during your recovery.
