VAAFT in USA?

Has anyone found any CRS in the USA that is doing VAAFT yet?

Hi LynnH I don't think so. I believe there is a CRS doing FiLac in LA, see news: Dr. Allen Kamrava, A Beverly Hills Colorectal Surgeon, Offers Clients Anal Fistula Laser Treatment.

This is similar to VAAFT. In Europe where I am based both are offered.
I will have the FiLac surgery most likely by the end of the month.

Thanks Fistulathens. I will look into the Filac procedure, and a trip to LA is do-able. Hope your surgery goes well!
