What is a Pilonidal Sinus?
Pilonidal sinus is a type of skin infection. Here, a small hole or cyst (fluid or pus-filled sac) develops in the skin in the cleft of the buttocks. A pilonidal sinus develops when hair in that area curls over and grows into the skin, resulting in an infection. It forms a tract that opens into the skin as a whole. Many times, it gets infected and leads to the formation of pus and blood, causing severe pain.
Pilonidal Sinus is an abnormal skin growth located at the tailbone that consists of hair and skin. The cyst is generally located near the tailbone and can get easily infected. Symptoms of an infected cyst involve pain, reddened skin, or drainage of pus or blood. The treatment for this condition includes drainage and surgical removal of the cyst.

This may vary on a case-to-case basis depending upon the procedure, complexities associated with the disease, institution, and geographical location.
If the cyst has been infected or is painful for the patient, the procedure is usually covered by insurance. The surgery will not be covered by insurance if the cyst removal is for cosmetic purposes.
The patient is taken to the recovery room after the surgery and is kept under observation for 45 minutes – 2 hours. The patient may have to stay for a longer period depending on the pilonidal surgery and how fast they wake from the anaesthesia.
