Is surgery the only remedy for Anal Fistula? What are cause/cure/? How much time it takes to heal completely!

2 Doctors Answered
Dear Vikas , hi Warm welcome to I have evaluated your query thoroughly . * Anal fistula cure is surgery only ( medicines give primary relief only ) . * Cause is infection leading to discharging sinus formation from skin extending to various internal parts over the peri anal region . * Healing time depends upon the complexity of fistula . If simple , not much deep heals within 2-3 weeks ; If complex , compound with multiple internal extensions , tracks , may take even months to heal . Hope this will help you for sure . Wishing you fine recovery & happy Diwali . Regards dear take care .

If you r suffering from anal Fistula then Say no to surgery. Because it recurs in approx 20 percent of the cases after surgery. However ever this problem can be completely cured without any recurrence by graded ksharsutra therapy. A clinical trial conducted by Indian council of medical research has already proved that ksharsutra treatment is more convenient andmore effective as compared to surgery in the patients of anal Fistula.
