Great Little Rock surgeon

I recently had my cyst and three "puncta" or "pits" removed, along with associated scar tissue. I saw a general surgeon named Debra Cunningham at UAMS. She was very experienced in pilonidal cysts, and we opted to remove it in the outpatient surgical clinic within minutes after the consultation. It was done with a local, and while that made me nervous, everything was fine. She does not put you in a jackknife position, but lays you on a flat comfy table and covers you up except for the small area she is working on. She does the marsupialization and does not cut in the midline. We did opt to close the wound, though, and that took three layers of stitches so that no pockets were left that would allow fluid to start an infection. The numbing shot hurt, but she was very gentle and would massage the area after each shot and let me tell her when I was ready to continue the numbing process. She also said if I thought I just could not continue with the local shots, I could opt at any time to reschedule for the operating room where I could receive a sedation IV, etc. I opted to withstand the shots and after the first two, it got easier. I let this scare me more than I should have, considering how wonderful she is and how relatively easy the excision was. I'm very pleased.

Does anyone recommend any other Arkansas surgeons that will remove plinidal cyst in an outpatient surgical clinic? Dr. Cunningham no longer practices in Arkansas. I am looking to find a surgeon that does not cut in the midline and treats it more consevative before major surgery.

Hi--I was just wondering if you were able to find a good surgeon in Arkansas? I am looking for one for my husband and have no idea where to start. He is ready to move forward with surgery because of the pain.

I need an Arkansas surgeon too. I would hate to have to fly to Houston and fly back . Jesus . Let me know if you find one.
