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

Causes:

  • Blockage in anal glands
  • Infection
  • Trauma
  • Crohn’s disease
  • Diverticulitis

Symptoms:

  • Pain
  • Bleeding
  • Swelling around anus
  • Painful bowel movements

Diagnosis:
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.

Symptoms

Treatment

Fistula

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
     

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ's) More information

How should I prepare for the surgery?

To prepare for surgery, take good care of your health and try to learn as much as you can about the procedure. Planning ahead can help ensure you have a successful procedure and heal faster with a smooth recovery. 

Do I need to take any medicine before my surgery?

Depending upon the procedure and the patient's health, our surgeons may recommend some patients to medications. However, these medications are prescribed after a thorough evaluation of their medical history and overall health. Therefore, you need to inform the doctor about your allergies and previous medical conditions in advance

How long will it take to recover?

Recovery time after the surgery may vary from one patient to another. Usually, it depends on several factors, such as the patient's age, the type of surgery and the adversity of the problem that is being addressed during the surgery. Therefore, it is important to talk to your doctor about the same prior to your surgery.
