    For the DFW area...

    Just wanted to give a heads up for a surgeon to AVOID if you want a more personal experience. Ronney Stadler did my surgery out of Texas Methodist HEB. When I went to go see him for my consultation, he gave me very little time--I was literally in and out, just long enough for him to explain to me my different surgery options and set up a surgery date. He talked to me for about 5 minutes before my actual surgery yesterday, and then afterwards for about just as long when I was recovering from anesthesia--and I don't remember a word of it, of course. Also, he neglected to write down or give my husband or I ANY aftercare instructions. My nurse in recovery had to have him paged to call her and give her instructions on how/when to change my dressings, when to come back for my check in appointment, when I could bathe, etc.

    As far as I can tell, he did an excellent job on the surgery (I'm in the medical field), and was professional, but NOT very personable or warm. Quick, to the chase and obviously wanting to be in and out with as little interaction as possible.

    Yup... it's been over a year and I'm very happy with how things went.

    I keep meaning to post a picture, but I wouldn't say the outcome was aesthetically "perfect". The scar is visible and there is a small bump at the top, next to a small depression. But no one sees it but my wife and if I try really hard, me. :) I would think about recommending a different surgeon for a young girl who wears bikini's all the time. For anyone else, I see no reason to look elsewhere.

    I'm not saying I'd go somewhere else, but in that case I'd think about it and ask around. I still recommend Dr. Lambert, and never regretted having this done for a second!

    Robert

    Wondering what type of surgery you had? I am quite new to all this and have no idea where to start with finding a Dr in the Lubbock area.

    Any recommendations for a surgeon in Houston Tx? Please help.

    Hi my name is Tom... I'm 19 and
    I have a pilonidal cyst which comes on and off and have been really considering surgery. Also what procedure is usually done for the first time ? I've never had it lanced, I poped it on my own, and got antibiotics and cream already twice , but it keeps coming back so I think surgery is my best option. Has anyone hear had this done before in Houston and know a good surgeon to recommend me to ?

    Thanks

    Hi! I am doing great. I had one more abscess pop up in a different location a few months after the first procedure. Dr. Snyder performed the same unroofing procedure on that one, and I have not had any problems since. It's been about three years now. :) I hear that Dr. Albo also is a very good surgeon, so I'm sure you will be in good hands either way. Ask a lot of questions, and don't be afraid to get a second opinion if you don't feel entirely comfortable. Best of luck!

    Tom, my son is 19, he is having his surgery nov.7. The surgeon is going to core out three small holes where it began. Then remove the abcess/cyst. He believes by doing this procedure the abcess will finally heal for good!

    I am looking for someone in Austin / Round Rock / Pflugerville areas. Any suggestions, good experiences, etc?

    If I keep having recurrences, or if they get worse and or unbearable, I most likely will want to go the Cleft Lift route. I have not needed surgery or any invasive procedures yet, but I want to be prepared.

    Thanks everyone! Happy Healing!

    Could I also possibly ask a few questions? I had my first lancing a few days ago and I'm pretty anxious about this whole ordeal. I love in Midlpthian and I think Dr. Lambert is the closest cleft lift surgeon to me and just wanted to talk with someone who has seen him before.

    Have you healed up or had any other PC reasons to go back to Dr Snyder? Do you still recommend him?

    I too had a pc. Also used dr snyder in houston. Said i would be sore a couple days bit would return to everyday activities within 2 or 3 days. I drive 3 hours home from outpatient surgery at hospital to go to my kids baseball games. Did nothing the second day. Returned to work the 3rd day. No problems. No pain. Simple dressing changes. He leaves it open but doesnt want you to pack it. Just keep guaze between skin edges so outside of wound doesnt heal before inside. My imcision about about 3 to 4 inches long and about 1.5 inches deep. Ita been 3.5 weeks and im almost healed. Another week, maybe 2 since it in am area that is constantly movimg and hard for edges to line up. Highly reccomend him

    Dr. Michael Morris, General Surgery
    Surgical Associates
    22710 Professional Dr. #204
    936-441-1010

    Dr. Morris did my recent open wound excision surgery on my horribly huge (bigger than a golf ball), abscessed, infected cyst. He was knowledgeable and friendly. He explained the need for and details of my procedure and got me scheduled for the next morning due to the urgency and danger of my situation turning septic. His staff is friendly, capable and helpful. The surgery went well, with no complications at Kingwood Medical Center. Post operative care was awesome! My follow-up care has been very good as well. Can't say enough good things about Dr. Morris, his staff and KMC.
