Hi all!

I’ve had a pilonidal cyst for 3 years now and am scheduled to have the laser procedure in a few weeks! It’s minimally invasive which I like.

Has anyone gone through this procedure? If so, how was your experience, recovery, etc?

I know this is a fairly new treatment for pilonidal disease but I would greatly appreciate any information!

Dr. Govekar? He did mine at Rush October last year. Was great. Nearly painless! Couldn't be happier. Had mine over 15 years before he did it. Couldn't wait any longer. I was his first laser patient and so glad I did it. No signs of recurrence. I was back at work 3 days later and only that long because I have a pretty physical job on the locomotive at a steel mill. Took about 5-6 weeks for complete healing of the sinus after but no stitches and no real restrictions. I'm happy to answer any questions you have. I'll pm you my email address if you want to reach out. I recently sent him a list of my recommended supplies to have patients get for packing after (also doesn't hurt) and I'd be happy to send they to you too if you like.
