Pydonidal?? (spelling???)
My neice was born with a hole at the bottom of her spine. She is now a teenager and this has not closed. What does the operation involve to close this?

Prue, they remove the pilonidal cyst in total and then close the wound. As long as it doesn’t communicate with the spinal column, there is nothing to it. Good luck.
