I am Dr.Iqbal Lohia from Jeddah, finished with 12 cases of cleft lift and am thankful for solving my surgical problem. All have healed and never midline problem. patient coming only once or twice for dressings. No dressing for 6 weeks after excision. Couple of patients having some wound infection at the rectal end ,but eventually healed without problem. At the end there is no cleft and patient even did not notice the same.
I have a request to obtain new DVD if possible. My address is
Medical Director and Surgeon,
Khalid Idriss Hospital,
P.O.B. 75, Jeddah 21411 (saudiArabia)
N.B. It will be nice if we can download from net as you are known to use advanced technology to educate other surgeon for solving their difficult problem (suggestion)........... Excellent suggestion. http://aboilonthebutt--pilonidal.blogspot.com/ I will try my blog. I am depending on you to comment by email. JUB

Performed my first lift last week and things are looking great! I hope
this is the answer my patients have been waiting for.
A question: What CPT do you use for "pit picking"?
Look forward to the video.
