The surgical closure of an Obstetric Fistula is the most effective way to treat this condition. Quality of life improves dramatically for the majority of women after successful fistula repair. Women are able to return to their normal lives; interact freely with their families and friends and lead a healthy married life.
About 80% to 90% of women with Vesico-vaginal Fistula can be cured by a simple vaginal surgery. The more complicated fistulas may require multiple attempts before continence is achieved.
As Healing Hands is a Proctology Clinic, we specialize in treating Recto-vaginal Fistulas. The Fistula is repaired in layers. Primary reconstruction is done. Sphincter repair is done. This is followed by vaginal wall repair. Finally, the rectal mucosa is repaired.
