Treatment

Diagnosis

When you consult with Pristyn Care’s fistula doctor in Vizag, he/she will gather information about your medical history first. Then the doctor physically examines the fistula to look for signs like oozing or fluid drainage in the fistula.

If necessary, the doctor will recommend tests like X-ray or colonoscopy for accurate diagnosis.

Surgery

At Pristyn Care, our doctors perform laser fistula in surgery in Vizag to resolve the problem completely. The surgery involves draining and cleaning the fistula tract. After cleaning, the laser probe is inserted into the tract. Then the probe is extracted slowly while it emits energy that ablates the tract. Thus, the fistula tract is closed off permanently. The surgery takes about 30-45 minutes to complete and done on an outpatient basis. The recovery period is also shorter than other conventional surgical procedures used for fistula treatment.

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."

Why should you not leave fistula untreated?

Leaving anorectal diseases, like anal fistula untreated is never a good idea. Over time, the problem will get worse and you will have to suffer from unbearable pain and discomfort. In some cases, anal fistula can also lead to complications, such as:

  • Infection- Anal fistula tract usually drains consistently and increase the risk of infection spreading to the entire colon or intestines.
  • Sepsis- This complication can arise when the bacterial infection present in the anal fistula is not treated on time. The infection spreads to the gastrointestinal tract and when the body releases chemicals to fight the infection, those chemicals trigger changes in the organ system. Sepsis will cause symptoms like fever, rapid breathing, abnormal heart rate, rashes, etc. and result in organ damage or death.
  • Perforation- Once the anal fistula infection reaches the colon and intestinal wall, it can lead to perforation. The weak part of the colon or intestinal wall will rupture due to the infection and the intestinal fluid and content will start leaking in the abdominal cavity.
  • Peritonitis- It is one of the worse complications of leaving anal fistula untreated. The bacterial infection gives rise to inflammation in the abdominal membrane lining and may lead to shock, organ failure, or death.

As soon as you notice the symptoms of anal fistula, it is suggested that you contact Pristyn Care and get proper treatment under our care of our specialists in Visakhapatnam.
