Anal Abscess

North American spine laser spine surgery

Abscesses do occur around the anal area as well. They are associated with significant pain and distress to the patient. Other signs of infection such as fever, chills, may be noted. When they occur, a drainage procedure is usually recommended to facilitate healing and provide rapid comfort to the patient. Depending on the extent of the infection, the drainage can be performed in the office setting, ER, or in the operating room.
