sinus pilonidalis operation

Treatment procedure in the Proctology Practice Munich

From the decision to have an intervention to the end of the healing period

The basic concept of our treatment is an individual approach that fits the patient's findings and requirements. Nevertheless, in the many years that we have now been focusing on Pilonidal Sinus , some helpful standards have emerged. In the following, we would like to explain when which operation offers the greatest chances of recovery and how the course of treatment can be expected for the individual variants of sinus pilonidalis surgery.

Step 1: Diagnose pilonidal sinus

Our specialists take care of you personally

You have already been to the doctor and the diagnosis is certain? Then you can skip this step.

Otherwise, see our Symptoms page for what the typical symptoms are, and our Pictures page for what a Pilonidal Sinus looks like.

Step 2: Make request

You do not need a referral

The easiest way is to fill in our Contact form form and use the option to upload pictures. A specialist will check the information and create a treatment plan. You will receive three mails (check your SPAM folder if necessary!)

  • a general info mail
  • a link to an online questionnaire
  • a date proposal
  • Acute pain? Then sometimes you don't have much time and the abscess must first be relieved.

You have already decided to have the surgery with us? Then you can also Make an appointment directly. Nevertheless, it is useful to send us picture documentation and information about previous treatments in advance.

Step 3: Before the appointment / operation

This is important for a perfect treatment process
  • Pre-existing conditions: Please inform us of any significant illnesses (heart, lungs, blood clotting), intolerances and allergies.
  • Plan enough time for the Arrival. You will find us at Brienner Straße 13 on the 4th floor above Café Luitpold. The subway stops directly in front of the building, a parking garage is located behind the Luitpoldblock. Please expect intense city traffic. 
  • For the journey home, we do not recommend getting behind the wheel yourself. Circulatory reactions can never be completely ruled out. Immediately after treatment, you may also not be a focused participant in road traffic. It is therefore best to organize a driver or travel by public transport without changing trains too often.

With small fistula and favourable localisation

Simple sinusectomy

Often the wound can be closed by suturing

In the case of a type I A and some I B fistulas, sparing excision with wound closure by suturing can be successful, especially if the fistula is located in the upper third of the gluteal fold.

The standard for most fistulas

Pit picking and sinusectomy

Avoid large wound in the midline

The vast majority of fistulas that have not been operated on before are between 3 and 10 cm long and have a diameter of 0.5 cm to 1.5 cm. Especially in the middle and lower third of the gluteal fold, it is crucial to keep the wounds as small as possible in the midline.
