Sphincterotomy

Sphincterotomy at Renacres Hospital

Lateral internal sphincterotomy is an operation to treat anal fissures. An anal fissure is a tear in the lining of the skin lining your anus, inside your back passage.

Ramsay Health Care UK recognises that an anal fissure is a common condition that causes a lot of pain. If alternative treatments have not worked, then surgery will be the best option for you.

Our surgeons are available to discuss the best treatment options for your anal fissure. We have convenient and flexible appointments at times and hospital locations to suit you, so we can arrange swift treatment without waiting and relieve your pain as soon as possible. We regularly perform the gold standard anal fissure treatment, called lateral internal sphincterotomy, at our hospitals.

We have strict protocols in place to keep you safe when visiting one of our Ramsay Health Care hospitals.
