- tiny and nearly no visible scar (5mm)

Endoscopic pilonidal sinus treatment is the most common treatment for pilonidal sinus.



Traditional surgical treatment of pilonidal sinus requires a long incision in the mid buttocks groove, with the asportation of all the tissue down to the bone and closure. The result is a long and painful wound that can get easily open and/or become infected during the post-operative course due to its peculiar position.

At Dr. Rami Hamed Center, we are proud to offer – first in the UAE – a minimally invasive treatment for pilonidal sinus called EPSiT.  

Endoscopic Pilonidal Sinus Treatment (EPSiT)

This is a very innovative method - performed only with a tiny 5 mm incision on the sinus itself, with no ugly scars and painful wound medications performed in a Day Care setting

After the incision is made, a fistuloscope (Meinero fistuloscope) is gently inserted. This allows the surgeon to directly see and treat all sinus tracts. The sinus is destroyed with the coagulation performed with a monopolar electrode and then debris is gently removed with a micro-brush.




The result is a tiny 5 mm incision, without any post-operative pain, and the immediate possibility to resume daily activities like walking, showering, and even sport.

This technique is specially designed for professional football players and other sports competitors needing to resume daily activity as soon as possible but gives a huge advantage to all patients whether athlete or not, therefore avoiding the long postoperative course of the traditional techniques and the ugly scar.

There is no need of paying any particular attention, except for a twice-a-day washing with a saline solution of the small incision.

Esthetic results are excellent already after 7-10 days. with a Low Recurrence rate and absolutely no pain.
