Unfortunately, 50% of the time rectal abscess will turn into a fistula. This will present as recurring abscesses and drainage. This can only be corrected with surgical therapy. We receive many referrals from other surgeons as they simply have not had the training to manage these. We manage these on nearly a daily basis in the clinic and operating room. We offer the most effective therapies available, including fistulotomy, LIFT procedure, Endorectal advancement flap, ACell application, and seton placement. Please do not hesitate to contact our office for details.
