Diagnosis

The best proctology experts at Pristyn Care in Mumbai can diagnose an anal fistula by physical examination of the area around the anus. A digital rectal exam may result in pus, that may be from the external opening. In some cases, fistula closes spontaneously and the drainage may not remain continuous. It can make the identification a bit difficult at the time of the office visit. If the fistula is not visible on the skin surface, additional tests like Anoscopy may be recommended. To diagnose fistula correctly, an expert may order an MRI or Ultrasound as well.

Procedure

The best treatment for an anal fistula is laser surgery. See, laser energy probe is inserted into the fistulous tract which ablates the fistula and rest of the fistulas tract.
