It is an abnormality that occurs in the gastrointestinal tract which causes fluids to seep through the lining of the tract to the skin and other surrounding organs.

Fistulas may have different causes, depending on the location and type. A gastrointestinal fistula usually arises due to complication of an infection, previous abdominal surgery or due to chronic diseases of the digestive system like Inflammatory bowel disease, cancer etc. A rectovaginal fistula may arise because of injury following childbirth or treatment in the pelvic area- in cases of cancer (radiation therapy) and due to other surgeries. 

An external fistula usually presents with pus discharge (such as discharge near the anus in case of anal fistula) accompanied by fever, pain in the abdomen, painful obstruction of the bowels and an altered white blood cell count. 

Patients with internal fistulas may experience bleeding from rectum, diarrhea, and show signs of malnutrition or dehydration due to impaired digestive functions. One must seek immediate medical professional help if he/she experiences any of the mentioned, to avoid any further complications.

The complications of a fistula may lead to obstruction of the bowels, incontinence (patient losing control of the bowels), low blood pressure, and reoccurrence of the fistula at some other location. As the severity increases, it may lead to sepsis (the most common), damage to the other organs involved, and ultimately death if left untreated.

In certain cases, a fistula may close but reappear in some other location. Therefore, one must seek medical care whenever they develop a fistula as it will not completely heal without proper treatment from a medical professional.

If a fistula is not treated for a long period of time it may lead to cancer. A fistula may also develop as a result of radiation that is received as a treatment in cases of cancer.

All Medfin’s doctors are trained in the latest, international standards of medical care. We work with doctors with a minimum of 9 years of surgical experience. All doctors are Medfin verified and are the best of the bunch with stellar reputation. We do not work with doctors who are just starting their careers. These doctors do not work exclusively with Medfin, but provide slots exclusively for Medfin patients. Costs of consultation and that of surgery/treatment are however, exclusive to Medfin and can be availed through Medfin only.

You may notice that the costs for certain surgeries are 50% - 60% lower on direct payment through Medfin when compared to the cost of the same surgery outside. This is because of Medfin’s asset light business model which helps bring down the cost without compromising on quality. Our asset light model means that we partner with top surgeons and hospitals, but we do not have to pay for these assets full time, but only when you require surgery. 

You are assured of top doctors practicing at top hospitals who will perform your surgery at our partner hospitals which are also some of the most technologically advanced medical facilities. 

We understand that this may be a difficult time and we will do everything we can to ensure that it is as hassle free as possible. If you decide to continue with Medfin, here is how we can help:

We will find you the right hospital based on your budget. Irrespective of the hospital, the surgeon you consulted will be the one performing your surgery.

Please note that irrespective of the hospital, the surgeon you consulted will be the one performing your surgery.
