What Are The Procedures Used By Dr. Ajay Chauhan?

Fistulectomy/Fistulotomy with or without Seton placement is the standard treatment for fistula in ano and is the only method with promising resuts and high success rates. Seton is used if required to save the anal sphincter along with fistula surgery.

Minimal invasive methods like fistula plugs, VAFT etc. have very high failure rates.
