Bringing Hidradenitis Suppurativa Surgery to the Outpatient Clinic
Chris Sayed, MD

Surgery is a critical aspect of HS management often necessary to achieve maximal improvement in disease activity. This course will provide practical guidance for when to consider surgery and how to perform surgical procedures for HS in the outpatient clinic. Special consideration is given to surgical planning and local anesthesia for large areas affected by HS. Deroofing procedures will be covered with step-by-step guidance and discussion of expected recovery and healing. Options for local and staged excisions will also be reviewed. Whether starting small or hoping to expand into larger procedures, there will be practical pearls for providers with a wide range of experience.
