How it works:

Incision + Drainage of perianal abscess

Your surgeon will make an incision in the skin near the anus so the pus can drain. This eases the pressure and lets the tissues heal. This can be done in a healthcare provider's office. If you have a large or deep abscess, you may need to be in the hospital and possibly have surgery under general anesthesia. In the case of a deep abscess, a catheter may need to be inserted to ensure all the pus drains out and do not cause any further complications.
