In brief: Depends on the cause

Fistulae caused by crohn's disease can be treated with medications such as remcade.
Others often require surgery or occasionally can be treated by injection with fibrin glue.

In brief: Depends

What fistula are you referring to.
There can be a fistula in the abdomen or in the peri anal area. Abdominal fistulas are lot more complex to treat. Anal fistulas are of several types and treatment ranges from a simple division of a fistula tract to having a colostomy or a drain and requiring multiple procedures.
