A very common and often, in my opinion, over-treated condition. We are very conservative in our approach in accordance with the latest ASCRS practice parameters. Many surgeons will inappropriately operate for mild diverticulitis. Our clinic will discuss with you the cause and treatment options. The majority of patients referred for surgical resection are successfully managed non-operatively.
If surgery is needed, you need to fully understand the operative plan. We offer both open and minimally invasive techniques. Robotic resection allows for quicker recovery and is our preferred technique.
