Laser Pilonidal Sinus surgery (Laser Pilonidoplasty Treatment)

Pilonidal cysts are itchy and often very painful, and typically occur between the ages of 15 and 35. Although usually found near the coccyx, the condition can also affect the navel, armpit or genital region though these locations are much rarer.
One proposed cause of pilonidal cysts is ingrown hair. Excessive sitting is thought to predispose people to the condition, as sitting increases pressure on the coccygeal region. Trauma is not believed to cause a pilonidal cyst; however, such an event may result in inflammation of an existing cyst. Some researchers have proposed that pilonidal cysts may be caused by a congenital pilonidal dimple. Excessive sweating can also contribute to the formation of a pilonidal cyst, moisture can fill a stretched hair follicle, which helps create a low-oxygen environment that promotes the growth of anaerobic bacteria, often found in pilonidal cysts. The presence of bacteria and low oxygen levels hamper wound healing and exacerbate a forming pilonidal cyst. If there is infection, treatment is generally by incision and drainage just off the midline.
The evidence for elective treatment of pilonidal sinus disease is poor.The most commonly performed surgery is for the pilonidal sinus complex to be surgically excised with the wound often left open to heal. Post-surgical wound packing may be necessary, and packing typically must be replaced daily for 4 to 8 weeks.
Surgeons can also excise the sinus and repair with a reconstructive flap technique, such as a “cleft lift” procedure or Z-plasty, usually done under general anesthetic.

LPP ( Laser Pilonidoplasty ) is a minimally invasive procedure done using the Laser. In LPP, a small cut is made on the skin and all the pus is drained out. The entire sinus tract is then sealed with the laser fibre.

• This is an Advanced Procedure for the treatment of Pilonidal Sinus.
• The main advantage of LPP is faster recovery with negligible pain.
• Patient is discharged within 24 hours and can return to routine work by the 5th day.
• No need of dressings
• Wound healing occurs in about 6-8 weeks and thus recovery is much faster as compared to conventional wide excision and even other most of flap surgeries.
• Recurrence rate is negligible.
