Pilonidal Cyst Removal - Your Surgery and Recovery at Home (Fraser Health) [English] Permalink Public

You have a pilonidal cyst near your tailbone, just above your buttocks, that needs to be drained and removed. The surgeon cuts around the cyst and removes it along with surrounding tissue. The surgery usually takes about 1 hour. You usually go home the same day. This depends on your health before surgery and your recovery. Replaces catalogue #265500 (English) Colour
