Treatment

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.

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."
