Hi... I am new to this forum. I had an open excision with secondary healing procedure done last year in October. It healed about 5-6 months later with significant discomfort. However, last week, the wound opened up again with drainage and I am quite sure that my ordeal with this problem is not yet over. After reading all the positive feedback on Bascom's Cleft Lift procedure.

I'll really appreciate it if someone can give me contacts of any surgeons who perform the cleft lift operation in India.

PS: I stay in New Delhi

Hi Siddy, first off I hope you aren't in a lot of pain.
I've had 4 surgeries and repeated recurrence of pilonidal cysts so I know how upsetting it must be for you to have this happen again so soon after your surgery.

I will call my doctor in Mumbai and check if he does this surgery. He did something similar for me but I didn't bother to ask him exactly what he did at the time. I'll get back to you soon.

In the meantime try not to sit for long periods of time, avoid slouching and keep the area free of hair. Hope you're feeling better!

@ KankRB... Thanks for replying!

I am not in pain... Actually, i had this cyst for 2+ years before I got the first surgery done. It was just a nuisance thing for me and I was never in any pain. But mate, the secondary healing process was the worst thing I have ever experienced - purely because of the debilitating effect it had. I love working out and am quite an outgoing person. My life suffered for those 6-7 months. Now, I am not at all in favor of getting another open excision done. I have heard a lot of positive stuff about cleft lift on this forum and given the elimination of the problem + low recovery times, I think it may just be the thing I was praying for.

Getting any surgery done in Mumbai is actually quite convenient for me. I have a close relative there. Please let me know if your surgeon does this kind of a procedure. I believe a modified Karydakis is also a similar procedure.

Hey Siddy,
I'll be meeting the surgeon who operated on me tomorrow. I'll ask him exactly which procedures he does for pilonidal and let you know tomorrow night.

I've had an open exicision done as well as closed surgery, can't say which I'd pick. I'd shown my reports to a doctor in the states as well and she said she'd have prefered to do an open exicision so I guess there's no righr or wrong as such. Probably it depends more on what works for you.

Hi Sunny,
I'm sorry for the delay in replying.

Dr. Mehli Nazir
+91 98 20 59 40 09 mobile & +91 22 2368 0506. It would be better to call his clinic first to see when its a good time for him to talk, or send him a text message if he doesn't take your call on his mobile.
He's located at Kemps Corner in Mumbai.

Dr. Nazir has been my surgeon for the past 5 or so years now. I asked him about the cleft lift and he said he does perform it. So you can have a word with him.

Hi,

I might have to come from Canada to see Dr Nazir as I need a speedy solution to my chronic pilonidal cyst. The doctor here wants to do an excision with open healing and I do not know how me and my family (2 young kids) will be able to take the toll of the healing post such a surgery.

Did Dr Nazir perform the cleft lift procedure on you? Was it (I hope it was) successful?

Hi i am Siddhant from Mumbai,

This is just an informative post and in no way am I advertising or marketing for my doctors. I am a resident of Mahim, Mumbai, India. I got operated in Aug'17 for my first pilonidal sinus at a hospital in Dadar, Mumbai, India. Unfortunately the operation or post operative conditions weren't suitable and the wound started leaking by mid-October. The first operation was closed surgery with excision without a drain.
Since then i started reading on the Internet and came to know about this disease in depth. Read about the accuracy and recurrence rates of various surgeries. This forum has been a huge support and helped me. I read about the Bascom's procedure, flap surgeries, cleft lift operations, laser treatment. I waited for 1 month and co-ordinated with my previous doctor but the wound had no signs of healing completely. At that time i was pretty sure i was going to need another operation. But this time I was going to research extensively and then consult the respective doctor.
Now i just wonder how come my pilonidal recurrence took place just after few months? Many users having done the Closed surgery complain of recurrence after years.
I came across multiple doctors in India who perform the cleft lift. Luckily i got a doc in mumbai itself. Read about him on various sites, as after 1 failed operation i knew how irritating it is to be immobile for a week, missing my college lectures and restricted exercises.

This forum helped me with finalising the doctor to get my operation done in Mumbai itself. There were three patients with the same doctor-

KankRB = https://www.pilonidal.org/xfforums/index.php?members/kankrb.5040/

The doctor is Dr. Mehli Nazir. He has his clinic at Kemp's Corner in South Mumbai and is also available at multiple hospitals in that area. He travels a lot for seminars and also performs surgeries in UK (according to sumit). Luckily i got my appointment with Dr. Nazir in December and got operated at Breach Candy Hospital in January'18. I am now healing well after one month post operation. Got my post operative MRI and there is no sign of infection and doctor said everything is good.
Nazir is one of the best doctors i have met.
This post is just to help any people in Mumbai or near Mumbai to be aware of this surgeon who performs Clift Lift. As during my 1st operation many deep tissues were removed, he performed a modified Bascom's procedure on me. He will check the patient and will study your MRI and will perform the most suitable operation and will customise it according to your body parameters. He gets to see many patients with recurrences. So my post will help you all by avoiding closed and open surgeries at the first instance and get yourself the best surgery possible. Rather than doing multiple operations go for the correct and optimal at the first time itself. It is more difficult for the Dr. to operate on recurrent patients than first timers.
I was unfortunate to have a pilonidal recurrence but now i hope for a full and quick recovery. Just want to get out of this ASAP. Also hope for good health of all the pilonidal sufferers and users on this forum, it has been very helpful.
I am also instructed to undergo laser hair removal as i have thick and quick hair growth. I am doing laser treatment at Lilavati Hospital, Bandra under Dr. Chetan Oberoi.
I haven't gone into much details but just kept this post short and informative as possible.

These are the doctor's details, you can call or message him on his mobile number. If you need any referral, you may mention my name :

Hi Siddharth,
I have been dealing with this decease since 14 months. Can you please share me your email id and contact details so that I can talk to you in detail. I don't have a recurrence according to the MRI as my surgeon said. But pinhole and discharge oftenly occurs and I have to check with it.
Awaiting for your reply
Thanks
