Training Program


Anal fistula surgery is a challenge for most surgeons especially when the fistula is recurrent or complex. Since there are many options available for treating fistulas, the surgeon is further confused about taking the right approach. Recurrence & Incontinence constantly hang over the surgeon’s head while deciding the surgery.  Dr. Parvez Sheikh is a renowned Colorectal Surgeon known nationally and internationally for his wide experience and expertise in dealing with complex anal fistulas. He has a very high success rate especially in high & complex fistulas. He has been training surgeons across the country in the art of doing successful fistula surgeries.

Since there is an overwhelming demand from surgeons for conducting a structured training program in anal fistula surgeries, Dr Sheikh has now started a training course in Anal Fistula Surgery for General and Colo-rectal surgeons, to enable them to improve their skills in the management of anal fistulas. The course will consist of both online & offline teaching. It will take the surgeon through the basics of anatomy, pathogenesis, clinical examination & approach to the disease. There will be detailed discussions on surgical procedures as practiced by him. There will also be a problem solving session which will consist of answering queries from the participants &  will also provide solutions to their difficult cases. There will be a small group of surgeons enrolled in each batch to enable one to one interaction with Dr. Sheikh personally. The lectures will be held over the weekend for the convenience of the practicing surgeons.
