About Sphincterotomy in Thailand

A sphincterotomy in Thailand is performed by highly skilled surgeons in advanced medical facilities equipped with state-of-the-art technology. The procedure is done under local anesthesia, spinal anesthesia, or general anesthesia, depending on the patient's condition and the surgeon's preference. The surgeon makes a small incision in the internal anal sphincter muscle, which reduces muscle tension and promotes healing of the fissure.

Preparing for Sphincterotomy in Thailand

Before undergoing a sphincterotomy in Thailand, patients need to undergo a thorough evaluation, which includes a physical examination, medical history review, and possibly an anoscopy to visualize the anal canal. Patients should choose a reputable hospital or surgeon with a proven track record and consider factors like language proficiency, facility reputation, and surgeon experience. Before the procedure, patients may be asked to follow specific dietary guidelines and avoid certain medications. Discuss any allergies or health concerns with your surgeon to ensure a safe and effective treatment.

Procedure Details & Recovery

The sphincterotomy procedure typically takes less than an hour. After the surgery, patients are monitored in the recovery room and then transferred to a regular hospital room. Most patients can go home on the same day or the next day. Recovery time varies depending on the patient's overall health and age, but most people can resume normal activities within a week. It's essential to follow post-surgery instructions, including dietary restrictions, wound care, and avoiding strenuous activities, to ensure a smooth recovery.

Costs of Sphincterotomy in Thailand
