Muscle-conserving laser treatment

 

Patients hoping that an anal fistula will get better by itself are likely to be disappointed.

 

Anal fistulas seldom heal up without surgery. Therefore surgical therapy is the treatment of choice. Inflammatory tissue consists of a mucosal tissue, in which bacteria often accumulate and cause the fistulas to reoccur (recurrence). This inflammatory tissue then has to be cut away as completely as possible.

 

If symptoms such as itching, soiling or oozing discoloration of the underwear of pus and blood and pain in the anus region occur after defecation, it is imperative that you have a proctologist check this out. He can also determine with certainty whether it is an anal fistula, anal abscess or hemorrhoids.
