Diverticular Disease

If you are one of the 50% of middle-aged Americans who have diverticulosis, chances are you will not require an operation. Our goal is to help patients manage this condition in non-surgical ways—as well as to be ready with state-of-the-art treatments if surgery does become necessary.

Adapting to Every Patient’s Needs

Even though diverticular disease is extremely common, there are a wide range of ways to address it. Our practitioners are specialists in multiple treatment options, and ensure that we find the least-invasive, safest and most sustainable option for you.

What to Expect

  • A history is taken and an examination is performed to ensure you have a correct diagnosis
  • Available records will be reviewed. It may be necessary to gather additional information or obtain further studies to investigate your situation further
  • A mild case of diverticulitis can often be managed at home with oral antibiotics and a modified diet
  • A severe case of diverticulitis may require hospitalization with intravenous antibiotics and no food or fluid by mouth
