Treatment

Diagnosis

Anal fissures often heal within 8 weeks. If it doesn’t, then the doctor will ask for your medical history and the symptoms. Often the doctor can see the tear clearly without any tests. If it is not visible, a physical or rectal examination is recommended of the area around the anus for accurate diagnosis. The rectal examination is done through an anoscope. It is inserted in the rectum to inspect the anal canal and see the tear clearly. The tests are usually recommended after the doctor reviews your medical history and suspects that there may be an underlying condition.

Procedure

The treatment of anal fissure is possible with minimal intervention and non-surgical methods at the earlier stages. However, if the condition has advanced, the doctor will suggest surgery to cure the fissure. At Pristyn Care, we use the advanced laser technology to treat the condition. It is a high-precision technique that allows the surgeons to remove the damaged muscles, if needed, without affecting the anal sphincter function. It’ll improve the blood flow in the anal region and promote rapid healing of the fissure. Get in touch with Pristyn Care doctors in Kanpur and undergo laser surgery by the hands of trained and experienced surgeons.

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."
