When should I consider hidradenitis surgery?
Hidradenitis, also called acne inversa, is a chronic, disabling skin condition characterized by painful lesions that swell up in areas of the body that rub together, such as in the underarms, the groin, between the thighs or between the butt cheeks. It is critical for patients to receive early diagnosis and treatment, so they can avoid some of the more unpleasant symptoms, such as scarring and discharge.
If symptoms cannot be controlled through less invasive methods such as diet or medication, then it may be time to consider a surgical intervention. Surgery can be used to drain infection from active lesions, cut away the affected skin to help control the origin of the bumps, or remove the entire compromised area, replacing it with a skin graft. State of the art treatments at our center involve microwave treatment with Miradry to control perspiration or Hyperhydrosis. Other advanced treatments for hidradenitis are laser treatment under the skin to limit perspiration.

It is hard to write a review for Dr. Sayah because nothing I write would do him justice and fully describe his great work. In addition to being very good at what he does and being meticulous, he is also a very nice and caring person. Further, he is very hardworking, sympathetic and attentive. It is very apparent that for him it is not about the business or money, but about patient satisfaction and beauty. I would not trust my face or body with anyone else but him. Another bonus is his office and professional and caring staff. I admire his work ethic, his great work and his commitment to his patients. I wish there were more doctors like Dr. Sayah.
Am I a good candidate for hidradenitis surgery?
Most healthy patients with realistic expectations make good candidates for hidradenitis surgery. Dr. Sayah will be able to give you a definitive answer based on a physical exam performed during your confidential consultation. Hidradenitis is staged into three levels of severity, with surgery being suggested most often for those with stage II or stage III hidradenitis, or for those suffering from chronic flare ups. Of course, the staging does not account for personal reactions to pain, or the impact of the disease on quality of life, so that is why a personal consultation with the doctor is so important.
What can I expect from my recovery?
After your surgery, Dr. Sayah will provide you with the necessary pain medications and will monitor your comfort levels in order to facilitate a seamless and stress-free recovery. Recuperation periods will differ for each client, but most find they can return to their normal routines within about a week.
What is the cost of hidradenitis treatment?
Costs for surgery will vary from individual to individual based on the number of areas treated. Most major insurance carriers will cover treatment for hidradenitis suppurativa surgery.
