    The diagnosis of anal fistula is usually done through a gentle visual inspection. However, some fistulas are not that easy to spot. In that scenario, the doctor will look for signs like oozing fluid or bleeding inside the anal canal. Most probably, the doctor will recommend some colon and rectal imaging tests such as X-ray, CT scan, colonoscopy to rule out the possibility of other medical conditions. As there are various types of anal fistula, the appropriate treatment method for anal fistula is chosen according to the type.


    Surgery is the only cure for anal fistula, but conventional surgical methods had many risks and complications. Due to this, Pristyn Care surgeons rely on advanced yet safe laser technology. In the procedure, a laser beam is used to ablate the fistula. The radial fiber emits laser energy at 360 degrees as it is gradually withdrawn from the external orifice. It is an anal sphincter-saving treatment whose success primarily depends on the efficacy of the tools and the surgeons. Once the fistula is drained and ablated, it is sealed properly without any stitches. The laser technology has minimal complications and it prevents the recurrence of anal fistula allowing it to heal faster than usual.

    In Our Doctor's Words

    What-Dr. Sanjeev Gupta-Say-About-Anal Fistula-Treatment

    Dr. Sanjeev Gupta

    MBBS, MS- General Surgeon

    25 Years Experience

    "Fistula, in general is very painful. You suffer a constant pain, irritation and smelly discharge around your anus. With time, not only your bowel movements but simple activities like sitting/ walking becomes difficult too. These days, I see not old but equally many men in middle and younger ages with similar symptoms. This is happening precisely because of today's inactive lifestyle, increasing dependence on junk food, stress and long sitting hours. The trend is dangerous. I highly encourage you have balanced, home cooked meal and walk at least thirty [30] minutes everyday. But, if a fistula has already formed, do not trust just home remedies/ OTC care. Meet a proctologist and seek proper guidance before it turns severe or risks forming infection or other anorectal diseases. Also, remember that while exercise and yoga can help in its prevention in the anorectal diseases, they will not help once the fistula has already formed. In fact, any excess movement/ or exercise during this time can cause friction, rupture, infection and way more pain than bearable. So, in my opinion, seek a proper medical attention at the earliest and let your doctor decide the best course of action."

    Get Treatment for All Types of Anal Fistula at Pristyn Care Coimbatore

    Proper treatment of anal fistula is necessary to get rid of the infection and alleviate the symptoms as soon as possible. Depending on the exact location, an anal fistula can be of four types:

    • Intersphincteric Fistula, which begins in between the space of internal and external sphincter muscles. Its external opening is very close to the anal opening.
    • Transsphincteric Fistula begins around the space of the internal and external sphincter or behind the anus. Then, it crosses the external sphincter and forms an opening one or two inches apart from the anal opening. This type of fistula appears in a U-shape or like a horseshoe having external openings on both sides of the anus.
    • Suprasphincteric Fistula is a type of fistula in which the tract begins from internal and sphincter muscles and turns upward near the puborectal muscle. It crosses the muscle and extends downward to the levator ani muscle. Finally, the tract opens closer to the anus.
    • Extrasphincteric Fistula is the most serious type of fistula. It begins at the rectum or sigmoid colon and passes the levator ani muscle directly. Its opening is also around the anus. It is usually caused by a diverticular abscess, appendiceal abscess, or Crohn’s disease.

    The treatment of anal fistula is a delicate procedure. Fortunately, the laser technology allows the surgeons to safely operate on the region with minimal risks and complications. Get in touch with Pristyn Care and find out how the laser surgery is carried out and what are its benefits.
