Treatment

Diagnosis

Most often a gentle inspection of the anal region is required to see the cut or tear. If the Fistula is not visible on skin surface, additional test like Anoscopy might be prescribed. To better define the Fistula, the doctor may suggest an MRI or ultrasound as well.

Surgery

Diode laser is used to treat fistula at Pristyn Care. It is a day care procedure performed under general anesthesia in 30 minutes post which the patient can be discharged. Laser energy is delivered by radial fiber directly in the tissues to shrink the nodes from inside. Moreover, laser energy is used to reduce the blood supply nourishing the abnormal growth. Laser surgery prevents the occurrence or recurrence of a prolapse and seals the fistula. The laser procedure for anal fistula is a safe, relatively simple, minimally invasive, sphincter-saving procedure with a high chance of success.

In Our Doctor's Word

What-Dr. Sajeet Nayar-Say-About-Anal Fistula-Treatment

Dr. Sajeet Nayar

MBBS, MS - General Surgery

19 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. Infact, 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."
