What is Pilonidal Sinus?
An abnormal skin growth with a small hole or tunnel in the skin, usually at the top of the cleft between the buttocks at the tailbone that contains hair and skin.
Who gets pilonidal sinus?
Pilonidal sinuses are most common in men than women and most often occurs in young adults and are rarely seen in children or people over 40 years old. Obesity and stiff body hair make people more prone to pilonidal sinus disease.
Factors increasing the risk of developing a pilonidal Sinus:
Spending lots of time sitting down
a previous injury to the skin
frequent irritation of the skin
a family history of the condition.
If the sinus becomes infected, this will cause pain and swelling, and an abscess full of pus will develop. This can happen very quickly, over a few days. It can also be a long-term problem that keeps coming back.
Symptoms of Pilonidal Sinus
Symptoms can vary from very mild to severe in these diseases. The symptoms may include:
· Small dimple
· Large painful mass
· Clear, cloudy or bloody fluid drainage from the sinus affected area
· If infected, the area becomes red and tender and the drainage smells foul
· If infected, may have fever, nausea and feel ill
Treatment of Pilonidal Sinus
If you have no symptoms of pilonidal sinus then you will normally be advised to shave the affected area, to keep the area clean, and to dry well after washing.

Rectal Prolapse Surgery in Pune
What is Rectal Prolapse?
Rectal prolapse is a condition in which the rectum (the last part of the large intestine) loses the normal attachments that keep it fixed inside the body, allowing it to slide out through the anal opening, turning it “inside out.” Rectal prolapse affects mostly adults, but women ages 50 and older have six times the risk as men. It can be embarrassing and often has a negative effect on a patient’s quality of life. Although not always required, the most effective treatment for rectal prolapse is surgery.
Causes of Rectal Prolapse
While a number of factors are thought to be linked to rectal prolapse, there is no clear cut “cause.” An estimated 30% to 67% of patients have chronic constipation (infrequent stools or severe straining) and an additional 15% have diarrhea. In the past, this condition was assumed to be linked to giving birth multiple times by vaginal delivery. However, as many as 35% of patients with rectal prolapse never gave birth and it can occur in men.
Symptoms of Rectal Prolapse
A common question is whether hemorrhoids and rectal prolapse are the same. Bleeding and/or tissue that protrudes from the rectum are common symptoms of both, but there is a major difference. Rectal prolapse involves an entire segment of the bowel located higher up within the body. Hemorrhoids only involve the inner layer of the bowel near the anal opening. Rectal prolapse can lead to fecal incontinence (not being able to fully control gas or bowel movements).
Treatment of Rectal Prolapse
Although constipation and straining play a role in this condition, correcting this may not improve an existing rectal prolapse. There are several methods used to surgically repair rectal prolapse. Your colon and rectal surgeon will make the decision about what surgery to use based on your age, physical condition, the extent of prolapse, and the results of tests. Options include removing part of the rectum or pulling the rectum back up and anchoring it. Sometimes mesh is used to reinforce the rectum.
Surgical approaches include:
Abdominal repair through traditional surgery (open approach)
