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 skin surface, additional tests like Anoscopy is done. 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.

Fistula is treated with laser at Pristyn Care by highly skilled and experienced doctors. They perform the surgeries that further reduces the extent of infection and evaluate the condition. There are a few surgery alternatives for which you need to consult a doctor. Once doctor finishes the procedure, they take back the laser probe and close the fistula. The method uses laser energy to destroy the fistula tract entirely. Laser treatment is useful in managing complex anal fistula as it involves many tracts. The laser beam penetrates infected tissues and thickens without touching. It is very minimal and supports healing.
