Laser Surgery for fissure in ano

Although most anal fissures do not require surgery, chronic fissures are harder to treat and surgery may be the best option. The goal of surgery is to help the anal sphincter muscles relax which reduces pain and spasms, allowing the fissure to heal. Doctors usually perform a procedure called lateral internal sphincterotomy (LIS), which involves cutting a small portion of the anal sphincter muscle to reduce spasm and pain, and promote healing. Studies have found that for chronic fissure, surgery is much more effective than any medical treatment. Laser therapy for anal fissure is a simple, non-invasive and painless surgical procedure with a low rate of complications. It can be viewed as an effective treatment for patients with anal fissure.

Is laser surgery good for fistula?

Laser closure is a safe and effective treatment for transphinteric anal fistula. The fistula length is the only significant prognostic factor when closing anal fistulas exclusively with laser: shorter fistulas have a better outcome.
