Jefferson Health

Diverticular Disease

Diverticular disease is often difficult to diagnose since its symptoms are similar to that of other digestive diseases. Jefferson physicians have the necessary expertise to accurately diagnose and effectively treat diverticular disease. We combine the expertise of Jefferson specialists including gastroenterologists, colorectal surgeons, nutritionists and others to provide personalized care through a multifaceted approach that may include nutritional therapy and medication.

Our experienced surgeons can also provide solutions for patients with severe cases of diverticular disease who do not respond to medication, such as surgically removing a diseased portion of the colon.
