Pilonidal Cyst Disease (Cleft Lift Procedure)

Pilonidal cyst disease is a problem of the soft tissue around the gluteal cleft. Dr. Rosenberg, who has expertise in the management of soft issue, has accomplished complex reconstruction of all parts of the body and his had considerable success in the treatment of this disease.

Dr. Rosenberg first became interested in the management of pilonidal cyst disease after caring for a patient who underwent ten prior operations. The patient had months of packing an open wound, chronic drainage, and he still never healed. Excision of the cyst with packing an open wound is the least desirable treatment plan.

Dr Rosenberg developed a technique that is quite similar to the cleft lift procedure and is achieving a success rate of over 97%. This includes patients who have had multiple prior operations. Excision of the disease with closure results in quick healing, minimal recovery and decreased pain.

Dr. Rosenberg is passionate about meeting the needs of each patient and focusing on providing the best results possible rather than just the fastest.

If you suffer from pilonidal cyst disease and surgery has been recommended, surgical excision is performed in an operating room under general anesthesia. Patients can be back to a normal routine in approximately a week after surgery.
