Treatment

Diagnosis

To get properly diagnosed, it is important that you consult an expert fistula doctor in Mysore. The doctor will first perform a physical examination to check the tract and other symptoms of anal fistula. In some cases, the fistula can be easily spotted when the fluid or blood is draining from it. In other cases, there is a possibility that the tract will heal shortly and there won’t be oozing in the anal region. In such a scenario, the doctor will perform either a colonoscopy or X-ray to identify the fistula and also check if the fistula is branched.

The doctor will recommend the most appropriate treatment method only after an accurate diagnosis.

Procedure

A fistula doesn’t heal on its own and it can’t be cured using medications as well. The best treatment method for this disease is undergoing anal fistula surgery also known as fistulotomy. There are various techniques available to close the fistula tract effectively. But laser fistula surgery is the most efficient technique. It involves using a laser probe that is inserted into the fistula tract until it reaches the other end. The laser probe is extracted gradually while it emits heat energy and ablates the fistula tract.

The entire procedure is safe, quick, painless, and takes only about 30-45 minutes to complete. It is a minimally invasive surgery, hence, the recovery is also short. You can get in touch with Pristyn Care and undergo fistula laser surgery in Mysore under the care of expert doctors.

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."

The traditional procedure requires an incision to drain, clean, and remove the fistula tract. Moreover, it has a higher risk of bleeding, infection, and bowel incontinence especially if the fistula is located near the anal sphincter.

In contrast with the open surgical procedure, laser surgery is a much safer option and has the following benefits:

  • Non-invasive surgery means there won’t be any cuts, stitches, or scars
