Cleft Lift Surgery

#1
Hey everyone, I'm planning on getting a surgery for my Pilonidal cyst. I've been reading some people's experience with this surgery and all of them haven't had any re-occurance in years, which really gets my hopes up. It just sucks that I have to deal with this type of disease but I try to stay positive. I currently live in Hawaii and don't know any surgeons who performs a cleft lift surgery. Anybody here knows of such doctor in Hawaii,?

It doesn't look like any previous members who have had the cleft lift are from Hawaii. You can probably contact Dr. Bascom's office and speak to Michele (or her email is mjones@nwsurgical.org). She'll probably be able to give you some names of drs who they've had inquires/training on the procedure. If they don't have anyone, make appts with some drs around your area. You can start with colon/rectal surgeons, go to general surgeons or even some plastic surgeons.

Where is Dr. Bascom located? Yes I'm seeing a general surgeon soon and following up on my family physician. I'll ask them if they know any doctors in Hawaii who performs the cleft lift.

Also have you had the cleft lift surgery done yourself?

Dr. T Bascom is located in Eugene, Oregon. His father is the surgeon who modified the Karydakis flap to make the (Bascom) Cleft Lift. Yes, I had the cleft lift and it was done by Dr. Bascom in Oregon. I live in the southern US and didn't have anyone in my city to do the surgery. I would have had to travel to a cleft lift dr anyways, so I contacted Dr. Bascom's office and went from there.
