Treatment

Doctors performing laser surgery for anal fistula

Diagnosis

Doctors usually diagnose an anal fistula by examining the area around the anus. To determine the depth and direction of the fistula tract, the doctor can produce drainage from the external opening. If fistula is not visible on the skin surface, additional tests like Anoscopy may be required. In this test, a special instrument is used to see inside your rectum and anus. To better define the fistula, the doctor may order an MRI or Ultrasound as well.

Procedure

In this technique, a laser energy radial emitting user probe is inserted into the fistulous tract which destroys the fistula epithelium and destroys the rest of the fistula channel/ tract. Laser technique is preferred over the open methods of anal fistula treatments due to:-

  • Faster relief and recovery
  • Quick and painless treatment
  • Resume normal activities within 24 hours
  • No diet restrictions
  • No repeated doctor visits
  • No daily dressings
  • Can be done in all age groups
  • Lesser risk involved
