Radiofrequent lateral sphincterotomy is a procedure done under general intravenous anesthesia due to extreme pain and sensitivity of the area.
It represents a partial incision of the inner anal sphincter, which leads to reduction of anal canal spasm. Stool passes through easily, with less irritation, enabling healing.
It is simultaneously possible, with fissurectomy, to remove hemorrhoids as well, if there is an indication.
By using a radiofrequent device, damage to surrounding tissue is reduced, and better precision is achieved. It shortens postoperative period and significantly reduces pain and bleeding.
