Diverticulosis

Most often found in the lower part of your large intestine, diverticula are small, bulging pouches in the lining. These seldom may cause problems, unless one or more bulges becomes inflamed or infected.

We offer a comprehensive team of specialists skilled in diagnosing and treating digestive disorders. Our modern treatment techniques to manage digestive disease provide the care that you deserve.

Treatments for Diverticulosis

Depending on the severity of your diverticulitis, you may be able to be treated at home through antibiotics, liquid diet or over the counter pain reliever. If your diverticulitis is more severe, your treatment may include surgery. Your treatment plan will be individualized to accommodate your needs and frequency of care.

Colonoscopy

After symptoms are under control, your doctor may recommend a colonoscopy to determine if there's a larger problem causing your symptoms, like irritable bowel or colon cancer.

Diet and Nutrition Counseling

Our dietitians will work with your doctor to get your diet to cooperate with your condition. We will help identify trigger foods to avoid while helping you enjoy meals.
