Surgical treatment of anal incontinence and recto-vaginal fistulas
Bowel incontinence can vary in severity from passing a small amount of feces when breaking wind to total loss of bowel control. It is common among women as a possible complication of pregnancy. Though not serious, sometimes surgery is the only option when other treatments have failed to treat an underlying condition.
Most people need surgery to close or repair a rectovaginal fistula.
