Treatment

Diagnosis

Proctology experts at Pristyn Care  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. So, by far, Laser techniques are preferred over the traditional methods of Anal Fistula treatments. It offers a lot of advantages like the time of treatment is lesser, the complete procedure is done in less than 90 minutes. It also provides faster relief and recovery. This is considered quick and painless treatment and enables a patient to return to normal activities within 24 hours. In addition, laser treatment of anal fistula ends your dependence on medications. It does not require daily dressings as it is a minimally invasive surgical treatment for anal fistula.

In Our Doctor's Word

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."
