Fistula

Overview

A fistula is a rectal condition in which an abnormal tunnel is formed between the anal canal and perianal skin. This causes the gastric fluids to seep in through the stomach lining or intestine and spread the infection. 

Most of the infections result in an abscess and have to be drained surgically. Therefore, one must immediately consult a doctor and opt for laser treatment to avoid any further complications.

 

Complications:

  • Recurrence
  • Faecal incontinence
  • Anal incontinence
  • Prolonged healing

Diagnosis & Treatment

Our doctors will ask about your symptoms, medical history and then examine the area around the anus. To determine the depth and direction of the fistula, they will also procure drainage from an external opening. 
For a better diagnosis, the doctor may recommend a CT Scan/MRI. If the fistula is not visible an anoscopy may be performed to treat anal fistula better without pain and lower recurrence rate.

Traditional procedures are quite painful and cause a lot of discomfort. Hence, surgery is performed to get rid of fistula while protecting the anal sphincter muscles. Our surgeons use special techniques to treat making the smallest incisions. 
With expertise in minimally invasive surgery, our doctors use an energy-emitting laser probe to destroy fistula epithelium and to clear the rest of the fistula tract.

Laser technique is preferred over traditional methods due to:

  • Faster relief 
  • Quick and painless treatment
  • Full recovery within 24 hours
