There's a surgeon called Weithmeyer in New West who very good. His office is located on Columbia street across from the Royal victoria Hospital , about 2 blocks further down, He has pinkish colored Awning over the front of his building.

I had the best doctor ever in Vancouver, British Columbia. His name was Dr. Nagy and he's on the 800 or 900 block of West Broadway.

I had my cyst for 18 years and it was really big and he did an excellent excellent job, although it took me 3 months to heal, can you believe I had NO pain. He's got a special trick he uses which he'll tell you more about should you see him.

Ottawa, Ontario - Colorectal Surgeon

My family doctor agreed to reffer me to a new colorectal surgeon. Does anyone in Ottawa, Ontario or Hull, Quebec in Canada want to recommend the name of a surgeon? ACTUALLY, I do have a friend in Windsor, Ontario. So if you know of any good surgeons over there, please, it would be so much appreciated!

Hey guys, I'm so relieved to find this site. I have had many annoying drainage surgeries due to my pilonidal disease. Im going to have another in the nect couple weeks. I have had Dr. Creedon preform one of my surgeries in the past. My personal experience is to try your hardest to get a colorectal surgeon. I am trying to do that now. I wish there was more options for people living with this in BC. Unfortunatly the doctors don't take this disease seriously. I am fed up of the doctors not providing me with proper care. I had my first surgery in squamish and the doctor stuck frrezing right into my abbsess, and then pushed on it. OH My god the pain! I then had a major infection and was hospitalized the next day. I want to have the final surgery after I heal from this one. Does anyone had a successful exsision surgery? Has anyone had reoccurances after the surgery? Skin Graphing? ect. Please let me know.

Hi there, just make sure they put you out for an excision. They try to save money on everything, especially your comfort. If they wrap an oxygen sensor to your thigh prior to your excision and your still awake" RUN FOR THE HILLS" and refuse to have it done this way.

Dr. Ron Monghan

He's a general surgeon but he see's 3 of these cases a day, and said that excisions and flaps are barbaric, he opts for a more conservative pit picking and cyst removal method... He's in Ottawa beside the Riverside Hospital...

Dr. Onotera (Winnipeg, MB)

My surgery was on July 11th and I am almost healed! I am very impressed with how Dr. Onotera (St. Boniface Clinic) has handled my surgery and post-op (including making sure the wound care nurses did as they were told haha :D)

I found out today that he is in Arnprior on Fridays, which is very good news for me, since I live in Renfrew, which is about 20 mins from Arnprior. I have an appointment to see him next Friday afternoon, I will be sure to let you guys know what he says.
Plus, one of my friends in Arnprior has her birthday next Friday, so this gives me an excuse to go visit her.[:8)]

Great news Nachos! Hopefully all goes well for you on Friday.

I love Renfrew btw. I went to school at Carleton and used to love going to Renfrew to play the golf course there. Beautiful place and great way to start my trips over to Algonquinn Park. ;)

I'm glad you found this guy of good use, he was my only saving grace except he didn't do the operation and now its back :-(

Has anyone actually talked to Dr. Monoghan??? When i went armed with the bascome technique he laughed at me and told me he was well aware of it.... any more info??

I have an appointment with this guy next Wednesday, I went to him last year but he told me i wasn't a candidate for an operation. My doctor now told me i have no choice but to get operated so I hope Dr. Monoghan is familiar with the bascome proceedure as I will travel to oregon and pay big bucks to get it, if anyone has actually had surgery from this doctor please drop me a line. Thank You!

I went to see Doctor Monoghan this afternoon (just got home a few minutes ago). This guy definately knows what he is talking about [^^]. He didn't suggest the Cleft Lift, but instead suggested I consider wide exision with open healing.

I'm still not sure if I want to do this, however, as I am looking for a full time job at the moment and will be starting college in the fall. My other option seems to be lancing and pit picking. Even though it rarely is successful, I think I may go for that, simply because it is less invasive.

Your thoughts?

I also told Dr Monoghan about all the praise he gets here and elsewhere on the interwebs.

Sorry for the delay in getting you a reply... Dr Bascom mentioned this surgeon to me:

Oliver Martinet
CHUS - Fleurimont3001, 12ème Avenue NordSherbrooke (Qc)J1H 5N4Canada
AFAIK, that is the closest to Montreal for a surgeon who has gotten the thumbs up from Dr Bascom. These are the other two names he gave me (For the Ontario region):

Dr. Ron Monoghan
Ottawa,
Canada

Peter Masiakos
Massachusetts General Hospital
55 Fruit Street, WRN 11
Boston
MA
617-726-8839

I personally went to see Dr Monoghan. If you are willing to make the drive to the Ottawa area, I would definately suggest him (check the Ottawa Ontario thread in this forum for more Monoghan praising).

Thanks

I read the thread about dr.monoghan however it didnt really mention any successful surgeries or much else for that matter. I would like to go see him. I am scheduled (when there an open slot) for surgery with dr.vasilefsky but she freaks me out (cold and bitter woman) and she doesnt soun like she knows as much dr.monoghan.

Dr. Monoghan

I also went to see Ron Monoghan, and he flat out told me to do the open surgery as it has the least re-occurance rate. He stated he does 2 of these a week and in 3 years only 1 re-Occurance..

In my opinion every doctor is different so get a few opinions.
