Anal sphincter damage is often a consequence of childbirth or prior pelvic surgery. Anal sphincteroplasty reattaches the damaged ends of the internal and external anal sphincter muscles to repair the disruption in the muscles. This will restore the normal shape and function of the anal sphincter muscle complex, thereby restoring fecal continence. This surgery has been performed for decades and is the most common surgery used to treat fecal incontinence. Success rates overall are high but infection is the most common complication of this surgery.  Other risks of the surgery include bleeding, failure and pain.
