I'm currently trying to find relief from my cyst. I saw Dr. Richard Saleeby, MD today and he pretty much said he couldn't do anything and that I should reach out to Duke or UNC hospitals. I'm a bit bummed about this, but glad I've found this list of potential doctors. I'm also looking into any homeopathic ways to cure it as well.

I used Rex Express Cary and had my first IND (Incision and Drain) for my first pilonidal ever on Monday of this week. Saturday was significant pain, Sunday was excruciating, and Monday was beyond what I would wish on my worst enemy. By Tuesday I felt better, and Wednesday I was able to work without any problem.

Stay away from the homeopathic crap - smearing your rump with a mix of various foods isn't going to help anything. Get a real doctor. The one I saw at Rex was very helpful (Dr. Jefferson I believe) and kind, and suffered a pilonidal of his own when younger which probably lead to his empathetic bed manner. The nurses are wonderful and helpful - I can't recommend Rex enough.


I don't want to ever go through this again - I'm looking into scheduling my pit-picking (probably with Dr. Sankar Adusumilli given the previous post recommendation) for over the winter holiday. Good luck!

Hey Sasha, I know this was posted a very long ago but I'm currently looking at cleft lift options in NC. I dont see Dr. Byrnett on the PDF list, but see you have him here as a recommendation. He is one of the only doctors in the area, along with Dr. Wadie (Not in my insurance). Do you have any references Dr. Byrnett for pilonidal? Have you read any success stories? He's one of the only doctors in this area that accepts my insurance but I wanted to feel better before choosing who to see about a possible cleft lift..Any advice helps! Thank you

Over time the original list has been updated as patients reported back that some doctors were not doing Cleft Lift after all. It appears that Byrnett was one that received the information but did not adopt the procedure so he was removed from the list.

Looking for MD in North Carolina

Does anyone have any info on physicians in North Carolina?
Please check Dr George Wadie in Raleigh, NC. After extensive research I found him and he did both my sons surgeries. He is specialized in the cleft lift surgery and the results were amazing. My 2 kids are back to normal after so many years of suffering and several failed surgeries. He is an amazing surgeon and if you live in NC the trip to Raleigh is worth it. Make sure you ask for him specifically as he has other partners in his group who do not do the cleft lift. He trained with Dr Bascom

I live in Western North Carolina (Asheville), and am looking for a surgeon for my son. He had a very unsuccessful open flap pilonidal surgery last summer, and is in bad shape. His first surgery was done by Rexx Surgical Specialists in Cary, NC. We drove 4 hours and stayed in a hotel for weeks, yet the procedure failed. Dr. Paul Park was awful .. he botched the surgery from the start.

Just looking for a referral by someone who has a compassionate surgeon. I understand that many pilonidal surgeries fail, but my experience has been horrendous.

Thanks in advance.

Sasha,
Please check Dr George Wadie in Raleigh. He did my 2 sons surgeries and their lives have changed since then. They both had several years of pain, failed surgeries, packing, bleeding and missed time at school and work. They were back to normal few days after the surgery by Dr Wadie. I recommend him highly. I did extensive research on this and I think he is the best. Make sure you ask for him specifically as he has partners in his group who do not do the cleft lift

I highly recommend Dr. Wadie also! I had my surgery on Friday and just got the drain removed today (Wednesday). He and his team have been great to work with.

Dr. Douglas Rosen with Charlotte Colon And Rectal. He performed a beautiful looking cleft lift on my daughter. An excellent doctor with a great bedside manner and an all around great guy. Contact phone listed on the USA surgeon database on this site (look under 'find a doctor')

thank you this was very helpful. I just made an apt with him. I've been searching the internet for hours but this really helps. thanks
