Anal fissures are a common yet distressing disorder. They are a break in the lining of the anal canal and can lead to bleeding and pain when going to the toilet.
Many fissures may be managed successfully with ointments and medications to soften the stool. However, some cases will require further intervention if the fissure does not heal, or the medication is poorly tolerated. Mr Eugene Ong is able to discuss with you which procedure is most suitable for your fissure.
One of these procedures is injection of Botulinum Toxin (“Botox” for short) to the anal sphincter which is associated with minimal side effects, good outcomes and minimal risk of incontinence. It is especially suitable for women or patients with pre-existing seepage from the back passage.
