Anal Fissure

Anal fissures are the result of small tears or cuts in the anus lining, causing painful symptoms like bleeding during bowel movements, skin tags near the tear, and a burning sensation in the anal area. This condition is becoming increasingly common across age groups and can worsen if left untreated. While lifestyle and dietary changes can often help with early-stage fissures, severe cases may require surgical intervention, with laser surgery being a highly effective option.

Types of anal fissure:

  • Acute anal fissure
  • Chronic anal fissure



Various surgical and non-surgical approaches exist for treating anal fissures. At Pilot Heal, we recommend laser surgery due to its exceptional benefits. Laser fissure surgery is the preferred and safest method, offering advantages such as minimal bleeding, no incisions, and no lasting scars. The procedure is outlined below:
  • Proctoscopy
  • Anoscopy
  • Digital rectal exam
  • Sigmoidoscopy
  • Colonoscopy

Procedure :
Preliminary Evaluation: Our skilled nursing staff conducts a thorough assessment of vital signs, including blood pressure, heart rate, respiratory rate, and oxygen levels.

Anesthesia Administration: You will receive either local or general anesthesia to numb the surgical area for your comfort.

Laser Application:  A specialized laser fiber emitting high-energy CO2 laser beams is used. These precise beams target the anal fissures, promoting effective and speedy healing.

Recovery Phase: After laser treatment, you'll be taken to the recovery room for careful post-operative monitoring.
Pilot Heal's fissure specialists excel in managing anal fissures while minimizing infection risks. For the safest and most advanced laser fissure surgery, we encourage you to seek consultation and treatment at Pilot Heal.
