Laser Fistulotomy

Laser fistulotomy is a minimally invasive surgical procedure used to treat anal fistulas. It involves the use of a laser to create a small opening in the skin near the anal canal to access the fistula tract. The laser is then used to vaporize the tissue along the tract, effectively closing off the fistula and promoting healing.

Distal Laser Proximal Ligation(DLPL)

Distal Laser Proximal Ligation (DLPL) is a minimally invasive surgical technique used to treat anal fistulas, a condition in which an abnormal passage forms between the anus or rectum and the skin around it. DLPL involves the use of a laser to destroy the lining of the fistula tract, followed by ligation (tying off) of the internal opening of the fistula.
