An anal fistula is a tiny tunnel that links an infected gland inside the anus to an opening on the anal skin. It usually develops in between the end of the bowel and anus’ skin.
According to proctologists at House of Doctors (HOD), various small glands inside the anus which produce mucus can get blocked leading to an infection. Nearly 60% of these turn into an anal fistula. Our proctologists suggest pus formation in the tissues is a usual occurrence. Even when the pus drains away, it leaves a small channel behind.
Leading surgeons at HOD explain that anal fistulas can cause disturbing symptoms like discomfort, pain and skin irritation etc. In most cases, our ano-rectal experts recommend fistula surgery.

Expert medical professionals at House of Doctors explain that there are 4 different types of fistulas. These include -
1. Intersphincteric fistula:
2. Transsphincteric fistula:
3. Suprasphincteric fistula:
4. Extrasphincteric fistula:
Surgeons at HOD take great advantage of their deep experience with Endo-Laser tools to treat fistula with a simplified procedure without cuts or avoiding the harms of conventional surgery. This helps in keeping the sphincter muscle intact at all times.
In laser treatment, our surgeons insert a tiny Laser fibre through the external fistula opening. It is then cauterized to close it from within. Our experienced proctologists use file-C Anal Fistula Track Laser Ablation.
Our experts might also use Fistuloscope (a tiny cannula with a camera) which allows them to laser the entire track of the fistula. This technique is known as Laser Assisted VAAFT procedure or LA-VAAFT. Additionally, proctologists at HOD make use of advanced procedures to confirm the complete closure of the fistula opening.
