What is Anal Fistula?
An anal fistula is an abnormal connection between the surface of the anal canal and the perianal skin. It is normally formed after a perianal abscess bursts or when an abscess is not treated properly. Anal fistula requires surgery most of the time and it can rarely heal by itself.
Surgery can be often challenging and pose at risk the anal sphincters and bowel control. Surgery techniques may vary, depending on the size, length and complexity of the fistula. Sometimes a long recovery time and several procedures are needed in order to achieve good results. To avoid those risks and minimise the recovery length, Mr Leo offers a range of new minimally invasive treatments for anal fistula including video-assisted fistula surgery.
