Fissurectomy is a surgical procedure that involves the removal of an anal fissure, which is a tear in the lining of the anus. This condition can cause pain, discomfort, and bleeding.
The symptoms of an anal fissure can include:
- Pain during bowel movements
- Blood in the stool
- Itching or burning around the anus
Fissurectomy is the most common surgical option for treating an anal fissure. During the procedure, the surgeon removes the fissure and any scar tissue that may have formed.
