Anal fissure surgery
Anal fissure surgery at our Centre is an uncomplicated and effective solution for avoiding pain, bleeding, and discomfort.
Before recommending the most suitable treatment, we will carry out an examination of the anus and, if possible, a rectoscopy examination.
Treatment: we treat the anal fissure with bath procedures, medication, apply a so-called etiologic treatment method – nitric oxide donor therapy and botulinum toxin injections.
When these methods fail or the disease is too persistent, surgery is recommended.
After the surgery: Usually the patient can start light physical activity – drive or work on a computer – just several days after the surgery. Full physical capacity is regained within 1-2 weeks, depending on the type of surgery.
Do not postpone treatment! Early diagnosis of pain and bleeding cause may help to avoid serious diseases, including cancer.

Frequently asked questionsgery
The causes of anal fissure are not fully known. Frequently it is constipation (hard stools) or some component in the stools traumatises the perianal area by moving in the anal canal. An anal fissure is a liner ulcer in the anal canal. Usually it occurs in the middle of the dorsal anal area. Since this zone is poorly fed with blood, the fissure’s healing is complicated. In addition, there is a psychological discomfort, the patient, fear of pain, delays defaecation, the stool becomes harder, and the hard stool traumatises the anal canal again. Eventually, when the disease is untreated, the internal anal sphincter tonus changes – it stays in a constant hyper-tonus status. Due to long-lasting inflammation, a skin fold forms above the fissure. Rarely, the urination function may be also disturbed.
An anal fissure may be caused by specific conditions such as Crohn’s disease, leukemia, sexually transmitted infectious diseases, rectum cancer.
Complications are rare, though there can be some bleeding, hematoma, or paraproctitis. Also, after a lateral sphincterotomy, minor dysfunctions of the anal sphincter might occur.
