FLORIDA surgeon help please!

#1
Hi, I am almost 6 months out from my first pilonidal excision. Unfortunately the surgeon seemed to miss part of the cyst which is tunneling and draining through a little bit of an open wound I still have. I'm looking for a Florida recommendation for a surgeon to do my second surgery as I really don't want a third! Currently I am in SWFL, but am willing to drive. I have also looked into going to dr. sternberg or dr. immerman as they seem to be the masters, but would like to stay in state.

Thank you!!

I am a South Florida resident and searched high and low within the state...to no avail. I also researched every surgeon in the USA that is considered an expert on pilonidal disease. I just returned from having a cleft lift by Dr. Immerman in Wisconsin. I could go on and on about what a great experience I had... every step of the way.
Go to one of the masters...if you are looking for a successful outcome once and for all! Dr. Immerman was absolutely awesome!

Thanks for the reply!
How long after the surgery did you stay in Wisconsin? Did you stay until he took the drain out or is that something you had taken care of back in Florida?

Surgery was on July 1st. The follow up appointment and drain removal was one week later on July 8th. Sometimes, the drain may be removed sooner. I chose to have Dr. Immerman do it. We flew home the following day. If you are able to stay, I would highly recommend it.

I traveled from Jacksonville, FL to have my cleft lift done with Dr. Immerman. As soon as you meet him and his staff, you know you made the right decision. By far the best hospital experience I've ever had!

Totally agree!! Worth the trip to know you are in the hands of an expert!

How long did you spend in Wisconsin? I've heard of people staying just a couple of days to up to a week post-op to see Dr. Immerman.

I had my surgery on Friday and flew out on Tuesday. Wasn't bad at all! I had my local doctor remove the drain when it was time.
