We all know that surgical treatment is the most reliable solution to treat fistula conditions. Because it is necessary to choose an experienced surgeon to perform the repair surgery to prevent them from happening again.
Clinic spots, one of India’s leading healthcare marketing agencies, sought the opinion of Dr. Samrat Jankar, a Surgical Gastroenterologist in Pune practicing at Symbiosis University Hospital Pune. Because Dr. Jankar has developed a better LIFT Surgery procedure that uses LASER to treat the fistulas and ensure that they do not recur again. It is a nearly painless day care procedure that lasts less than an hour. The patient can go home on the same day and resume a routine soon.
Dr. Samrat Jankar, a leading laparoscopic surgeon in Pune states, because ‘ LASER LIFT surgery is a fusion of LIFT technique and LASER energy. I focus it on reducing the recurrence of fistula and taking care of the incontinence factor.’ He further explains the procedure, ‘We first dissect between the sphincters and identify the tract, then ligate and divide the tract as per the recommended LIFT surgery principles. Because the distal tract lining will be totally ablated by a radial emission fibre of the LASOTRONIC smart laser energy. But this technique speeds up the healing process.’
All about complex anal fistulas and their causes
Fistula in ano/Bhagandar/complex anal fistula results from an anal abscess, current or a past one. But it is a small tunnel located within the anal canal that opens outside near the anus in the lower buttock area.
Causes of fistula in ano
Many reasons lead to fistula in ano in an individual. Some medical conditions such as Crohn’s disease, cancer, trauma, and radiation also cause fistula in ano. Also, when small glands within the anus get severely infected and develop an abscess condition which ultimately develops into a fistula in ano. Infection in these glands is because of local trauma, poor perianal hygiene, constipation, etc.
The LIFT procedure–Treatment of fistula in ano conditions
The LIFT procedure is supposed to be one of the most suggested procedures to treat fistulas. But in this procedure, the doctor divides the fistula tract and space between the two sphincter muscles and treats the fistula. But there are chances of fistula in ano conditions recurring after this procedure.
The LIFT procedure comes at a success rate of 70 to 80% when compared with other sphincter preservation procedures. So, Dr. Jankar used LASER energy to treat the fistula area and prevent it from happening again.
Because Dr. Samrat Jankar demonstrated the LASER LIFT technique at Dr. Vithalrao Vikhe Patil Foundation’s Medical College & Hospital, Ahmednagar, on Friday, 19th March 2021. Because I invited him to speak at Continuing Medical Education session on LASER in Clinical Surgery. He also shared his knowledge and experience in ‘Current concepts in complex fistula in ano management’ along with a surgery demonstration.
Dr. Samrat Jankar is also a hernia specialist, laparoscopic GI, Cancer, and Colorectal surgeon. But I can consult him.
