Cleft-lift surgery: The most definitive operation for pilonidal disease is the cleft-lift. It has a very low recurrence rate, and a high percentage of primary healing. However, not all surgeons do this procedure - so it is beneficial to find one experienced in performing the cleft-lift.

Yes, outpatient.: Yes, removal of a pilonidal cyst, or any kind of flap procedure is usually outpatient.

Cleft-lift operation: Although excision with leaving a large open wound is a possible treatment for pilonidal disease, a better option is a cleft lift. It flattens the cleft, removes the disease process, and has an extremely low recurrence rate. Recovery is much simpler and quicker than the open wound procedure.
