All complex procedures for diverticulitis are performed robotically at SGLA by Dr. Yosef Nasseri and Dr. Moshe Barnajian.
Also known as a bowel resection, this surgery involves the removal of the affected portion of the colon (usually the sigmoid colon). This procedure is typically recommended for individuals with severe diverticulitis, complications like abscesses or perforations, or frequent recurrences. The surgeon removes the affected section of the colon and then reconnects the healthy ends. Dr. Nasseri and Dr. Barnajian perform this through minimally invasive robotic surgery. Resection surgery can provide long-term relief, reduce the risk of future diverticulitis episodes, and prevent complications.
