In brief: Usually

Most anal fistulas are easy to cure, some are very difficult.
There are many options for the treatment of anal fistulae, depending on the anatomy of the fistula. See a colorectal surgeon.

In brief: Yes

Proper surgery should eventually resolve anal fistulas, but occassionally patients have as yet undiagnosed diseases that may be contributing to there formation.
