Anal Fissure Treatment Specialists Atlanta

An anal fissure is a tear of the skin within the anal canal. Symptoms from fissures typically include discomfort and minor bleeding during and after bowel movements. Symptoms may be brief and last only a few days or may become chronic and last for weeks or even months if no treatment is sought. The treatment for anal fissures can range from topical ointments to surgery depending on the severity of symptoms and the response to treatment.
