Treatment of Fistula By Dr. Narendra Chopde:

Types of Fistula Treatment:

  • Fistulotomy:- The most common type of surgery for anal fistulas is a fistulotomy. This involves cutting along the whole length of the fistula to open it up so it heals as a flat scar. A fistulotomy is the most effective treatment for many anal fistulas, although it’s usually done in simple fistula where the risk of incontinence is less. This procedure is not suitable in complex fistula and in cases where the risk of incontinence is considered too high, sphincter preserving procedures are recommended. Dr. Narendra Chopde Fistula Specialist Surgeon in Pune uses a LASER as an adjunct to Fistulectomy to minimize the risk of damage to the sphincter muscle. Thus, with the added advantage of Laser, the chances of post-operative pain will be negligible.
  • Ligation of the intersphincteric Fistula Tract (LIFT): The ligation of the intersphincteric fistula tract (LIFT) procedure is the best treatment for fistulas that pass through the anal sphincter muscles, where a fistulotomy would be too risky. This is a Highly efficient procedure with almost no recurrences or incontinence. Dr. Narendra Chopade, a well-known colorectal surgeon in Pune, specializes in complex fistula surgery.
  • Fistula-tract Laser Closure (FiLaC): The FILAC (fistula-tract laser closure) technique aims to gently ablate the fistula tract without injuring the sphincter muscle. The procedure uses the Leonardo laser. With the patient under general anesthesia, the procedure is completed in 30 to 40 minutes.
  • VAAFT: This technique is minimally invasive and is a sphincter-sparing technique for treating complex fistulas. A video telescope helps our expert fistula surgeons see inside the fistula tract. A polar electrode for the internal pathway. During this process, it is connected to a high-frequency generator. Also, fistula brushes and forceps are used to clean the tract and clean out granulation tissue.
  • FISTULA PLUG: The fistula plug is a 100% synthetic bio-absorbable scaffold. This plug is placed in the fistula tract. Over time cells from the body migrate into the scaffold and new tissue is generated as the body gradually absorbs the plug material, leaving no permanent material in the body.
