Diverticular Disease

Colon and rectal surgeons at the University of Chicago Medicine are experts in the surgical treatment of complex diverticular disease.

In most cases of diverticulitis, patients do not need surgical intervention. However, in more complicated cases, our surgeons may perform resections to help manage the condition.

In any case that patients are referred to our care, we work closely with the patient’s primary care physicians as well as colleagues in gastroenterology and nutrition to help facilitate the best outcome possible.
