Mayo Clinic doctors trained in women's reproductive disorders (gynecologists and urogynecologists) and urinary disorders (urologists) treat vaginal fistulas. Mayo Clinic doctors with special training in the treatment of colon and rectal problems (colorectal surgeons) also specialize in treating vaginal fistulas.
A vaginal fistula is an abnormal opening in your vagina that connects it to another organ such as your bladder or colon. Whatever the cause of your fistula, you may need to have it closed by a surgeon to restore your normal function.
