FiLaC – minimal-invasive Laser therapy
The modern laser procedure FiLaC is a form of therapy carried out in The Beta Klinik. It is straightforward and used in cases of acute infections of the coccygeal fistula. The treatment only takes a few minutes and allows patients to be symptom free in their everyday life within a very short time.
Whilst under anaesthetic, a laser probe is introduced into the infected opening of the fistula right through to the abscess cavity. Only a small incision in the skin is necessary to position the probe as large incisions in the buttocks area are not needed. The low number of cuts is cosmetically attractive and the rapid healing of the wound greatly enhanced. Long periods of lying down and complicated caring of the wound are done away with as the minimally invasive laser therapy allows for absolute precision in the interior of the fistula.
Once the strobe has been placed, the surgeon releases the laser energy which obliterates the infected tissue from the inside. Diseased tissue and remnant hair are destroyed. The probability of fresh infection is extremely rare. While the energy is still activated, the surgeon slowly extracts the flexible probe and at the same time destroys the fistula tract.
The minimal-invasive laser therapy can take place as same day surgery, and is both painless and cosmetically very interesting. There are no unpleasant scars afterwards and the healing period is very quick lasting only a few days.
