Anal fissure surgery may be needed in cases where conservative treatments have failed to provide relief or if the fissure is chronic and not healing on its own. Here are some reasons why anal fissure surgery may be necessary:

  • Persistent or Chronic Fissure: If the anal fissure persists despite conservative treatments, surgery may be considered. Chronic fissures are often more resistant to healing, and surgical intervention may be required to promote proper healing.
  • Severe Pain: Anal fissures can cause significant pain, especially during bowel movements. If the pain is severe and affects the quality of life.
  • Recurrent Fissures: Some individuals may experience recurring anal fissures, even after attempts to heal the initial fissure.
  • Non-healing Fissure: In some cases, an anal fissure may fail to heal on its own due to various reasons such as poor blood supply to the area or the presence of underlying conditions. Surgery can help remove scar tissue, improve blood flow, and promote healing of the fissure.

There are several types of anal surgeries performed to address various conditions and concerns. The specific procedure recommended will depend on the individual's condition, symptoms, and the surgeon's assessment and expertise. Here are some common types of anal surgery:

  • Haemorrhoidectomy: This surgical procedure involves the removal of haemorrhoids, which are swollen blood vessels in the anal area. It is typically used for more severe or recurrent cases of haemorrhoids that do not respond to conservative treatments.
  • Anal Fistulotomy: This surgery is performed to treat anal fistulas, which are abnormal tunnels that form between the anus and the surrounding skin. During a fistulotomy, the surgeon opens the fistula tract, removes any infected tissue, and allows it to heal from the inside out.
  • Anal Abscess Drainage: An anal abscess is a painful collection of pus that forms near the anus. To treat an anal abscess, a surgical procedure is performed to drain the abscess and alleviate the associated pain and infection.
  • Anal Sphincterotomy: This procedure involves the partial division or incision of the internal anal sphincter muscle. It is commonly used to treat anal fissures by reducing pressure on the fissure and promoting healing.
  • Anal Polypectomy: Anal polyps are abnormal growths in the lining of the anal canal. During an anal polypectomy, these polyps are surgically removed to prevent complications and rule out any potential malignancy.
  • Anal Stenosis Surgery: Anal stenosis refers to the narrowing of the anal canal, which can lead to difficulties with bowel movements. Surgical interventions, such as anal dilatation or anal advancement flaps, may be performed to widen the anal canal and improve bowel function.
  • Anal Wart Excision: Anal warts, caused by certain strains of the human papillomavirus (HPV), may require surgical removal if they are large, numerous, or causing symptoms.
