Pilonidal Disease


Pilonidal disease is a common ailment seen by colorectal and general surgeons all over the world. Despite the common nature of the disease, its treatment is associated with complications and recurrence. Many surgeons lack the awareness of some of the more modern flap based procedures that can lead to a lower recurrence rate. It is imperative to disseminate this information in a meaningful and easy to access forum, such that patient outcomes can be optimized. Various operative techniques can be reviewed and tips and tricks can be discussed. A question/ answer based portion will facilitate adequate attention to issues facing surgeons who treat this disease. A case based discussion will similarly assist with proper technique selection.
