If the fistula is small enough it may close on its own. If not it needs to be removed. If the entire tract is not removed it will just reform.

This can be corrected by a gynecologist, uro-gynecologist, or colo-rectal surgeon. Depending on the exact condition, it may require more than one of these specialists.
