Hemorrhoids or piles are a very common problem found these days. But still many people don't talk about it and suffer in pain and do not even seek any medical advice. S.S hospital treats most of the patients on an outpatient basis without making them go through any surgery by using modern techniques.
A small channel that can develop between the end of the rectum/anal canal and the skin near the anus is called an anal fistula. Patients experience pain and bleeding while passing the stools. Hard and dry bowel movements can cause an anal fistula. Surgery is performed by a specialist to assess the depth and extent of the fistula tract for managing the anal fistula.
There are two types of fistula treatments:
Minimally Invasive Fistula Treatment (MAFT): This is a laparoscopic technique that is minimally invasive.
Fistulotomy/Fistulectomy: The skin and muscle over the tunnel are cut open, converting it into an open groove in fistulotomy through which most fistulas are treated. This way fistula tract gets healed inside out.
