Diverticulosis

What is Diverticulosis?

Diverticulosis is an abnormal condition that affects the colon. It consists of small out-pouchings forming in the weak areas in the walls of the colon. These small pouches are called diverticuli. Many people may have diverticulosis but no symptoms or problems. Diverticulitis develops if these small pouches become inflamed or infected by bacteria that normally live in the colon. Surgeons at The Nebraska Medical Center use the latest in minimally invasive technology to treat Diverticulosis.
