Pilonidal Sinus

Pilonidal Sinus at Rivers Hospital

There are a number of surgical procedures to drain, remove and treat an infected pilonidal sinus cyst.

A pilonidal sinus, also known as a pilonidal cyst, pilonidal abscess and pilonidal disease, is a pimple-like sac filled with hair and skin debris that forms in the crease between your buttocks, near your tailbone.

Ramsay Health Care UK is proud to provide exceptional care across our network of hospitals, outpatient centres and specialist clinics.

We offer the latest and recommended techniques for pilonidal sinus surgery. We work alongside expert consultants who will guide and advise you on the best treatment option for your pilonidal abscess.

Ramsay offer convenient appointments without waiting so you can arrange your pilonidal sinus surgery as soon as possible to treat painful, bleeding and leaking discharge symptoms of a pilonidal sinus.

At Ramsay Health Care UK, the safety of our patients, staff and consultants is our absolute priority. All of our hospitals follow strict infection control and prevention protocols to minimise the risk of any infection, including COVID-19.
