Anal Fistula Treatment
It is always advised to seek a fistula specialist and get treated on time to avoid further complications like fecal incontinence, anal infections, and improper function of anal sphincter muscles.
Fistula doctors at our hospitals suggest laser fistula surgery, LIFT procedure, and advanced flap procedure to eliminate simple or complex anal fistulas. In most cases, we perform laser fistula operation to treat anal pain, swelling around the anus, and anal irritation caused by an anal fistula.
How is laser surgery for anal fistula performed?
– General or local anesthesia is given to the patient.
– Once the patient falls asleep or the surgical area is numbed, a flexible fiber-optic probe is inserted into the external opening of the fistula.
– Once the probe reaches the start of the tract, the laser is activated.
– Now, the laser is slowly withdrawn to destroy the inflammatory tissues of the fistula.
– Over a period, the fistula tract contracts and heals.

Our Patients Review
I had piles for quite some time and the condition didn’t improve after trying many home remedies. When I consulted Dr. Pankaj, I was stressed after knowing that I needed surgical treatment. Fortunately, the doctor briefed me before the procedure and told me that there won’t be any cuts or stitches as they use laser technology. I trusted my doctor and had the surgery the next day. There were no cuts, stitches, or scars involved in the surgery. Now I am recuperating well and don’t feel any pain during bowel movements thanks to Dr. Pankaj.
