What is a Fistula?

What are the different traditional procedures to treat fistula?

There are several procedures that involve cutting through the anal region to seal the fistula. Some of the procedures are:

  • Fistulotomy: The entire length of the fistula is cut and opened so that it heals like a cut

  • Seton Technique: A cut is made in the anal region and a surgical thread is placed in the fistula to help it to drain out slowly and heal on its own

  • Flap Procedure: A cut is made in the fistula through which it is drained. A flap is used to cover the fistula to help it heal. The flap is made of tissue taken from a healthy part of the rectum.

  • LIFT procedure: The fistula is cut and sealed at both ends and the rest of it is kept open to heal


How many days does it take to recover from traditional surgery?

It takes 2-4 days to recover from traditional surgery for fistula.
