I'd it better to see a proctologist or a colorectal surgeon for a fissure fistula?

Yes: Both should be experts in managing this issue. Ask your primary who has the expertise locally in the area. A gastroenterologist can also refer you to the proper doc. You may require testing by a gastroenterologist to see if there is an underlying cause of the problems. Good luck.

Inter hemispheric fissure of the brain ? I suppose this is a better picture to use than the alternative.
