What is Fistula Surgery?

It repairs an abnormal tunnel that connects organs, used for Anal Fistulas in Dubai. The surgeon performs it by either using a seton for drainage or cutting open the fistula for long-term and proper healing, with pain relief. Yet, most candidates opt for a less invasive laser treatment to achieve a convenient healing process. Surgeons use these techniques to improve the quality of life for individuals affected by such infections.

What is the Aim of the Treatment?

Whether using a Surgical or Laser Treatment, the primary aim of this technique is the complete healing of the abnormalities. Surgeons focus on the affected area and perform a precise incision to seal it. This procedure aims to ease the pain, discomfort, and drainage associated. The experts use an incision, laser, or a seton for drainage. It facilitates the complete healing process over time.

Results of Laser Fistula Surgery:

By sealing the tunnel either through a laser, a fistulotomy, or using a drainage device, success rates tend to be around 80-90%. Recovery is typically swift, with patients returning to their regular activities within a week or two. After undergoing the treatment, which addresses abnormal connections between organs, most patients experience significant improvement within a couple of weeks.

Ideal Candidates:

The ideal candidates are those who meet the criteria mentioned below:

  • A doctor examines and confirms your diagnosis of the condition.

Laser Treatment:

  • Fistula and Transanal laser closure are two similar and minimally invasive approaches. They use a laser fiber inserted into the anal area.
  • The Laser heats and closes the region inside out, without having to do any major incisions.

Surgical Approach:

  • The problem-causing pain location will be properly cleaned before starting the treatment.
  • The surgeon will then carefully cut open the region entirely, for internal and external healing.
  • A rubber-like material or small thread is inserted into the affected area to ensure a complete seal and drainage.
  • In complex cases, surgeons usually go for advanced methods by using grafts, plugs, or flaps for effective results.
  • Lastly, the region will be left exposed to ensure a proper healing process. However, a tiny drain or sutures may be considered depending on how severe the condition is.
