If the coccyx fistula is treated with pit-picking or by sclerosing the fistula ducts with the FilaC laser, the results are quite good, but both options are not the best solution. For this reason, Dr. Hofer has further developed the laser method and created a procedure with which 90 percent of a coccyx fistula can be healed.
Treatment of the coccyx fistula without surgery: peeling of the fistula ducts
The proctological practice of Dr. Hofer in Munich has many years of experience in the treatment of coccyx fistulas by means of peeling. As with pit-picking, a minimally small wound is created, over which the fistula tracts are completely removed. This procedure offers the great advantage that almost all coccyx fistulae can be healed.
