Expert, personalized and reliable care for pilonidal disease

Home: Welcome


Dear Patients:

Pilonidal disease is a very common condition and if not managed correctly can be  disabling.

I have been taking care of patients with complex pilonidal disease since 2007. During this time, I developed a passion for helping patients with this condition.


Most recently I served as a pediatric surgeon and director of the Pilonidal Center at WakeMed Health and Hospitals in Raleigh, NC. Although academic medicine and research were exciting, I discovered that patient care is where my passion lies and helping patients and their families provides me with the greatest satisfaction.

During these years of clinical experience, I realized that

  • Pilonidal specialists are much needed but there are only very few centers in the country governed by rigid hospital policies and insurance contracts with no direct, personalized care for patients.

  • There is a high healthcare cost associated with practices within hospitals and several boundaries that limit patients' access to specialized care.

  • Most patients with pilonidal disease can be managed in a time efficient and affordable way with great results if managed by a specialized center outside the hospital setting.

Therefore I decided to start a specialized practice to provide exceptional, affordable and convenient care to patients with pilonidal disease from all over the US. My goal is to be a dedicated adviser for you and your loved ones – so you can make the best decision regarding your condition.

George Wadie, MD, FACS, FAAP

Doctor and Patient

Why Us

  • Dr. Wadie has been performing the Cleft Lift procedure for more than 13 years helping hundreds of patients.

  • Our success rate with the cleft lift is over 98% even for extensive disease. 

  • We offer a less invasive procedure called “Pit Picking” for patients who are good candidates for it.

  • We evaluate every patient individually to come up with a personalized treatment plan that fits your needs.

  • We offer a very unique system to accommodate patients who live outside the Raleigh area and even out of state. 

  • Not all “cleft lifts” are the same. We have seen many failed cleft-lifts performed by other surgeons that do not look anything like the procedure Dr Wadie performs.

  • The first procedure you get is always the best procedure to achieve cure.

We are here to help you and provide you and your loved ones with the best chance to cure Pilonidal Disease.
