Diverticulosis and diverticulitis
We have had a long interest in the treatment on diverticulosis and diverticulitis. Two PhD students have published their theses. In those reports we have shown the long-term risk for patients with diverticulosis to develop colorectal cancer. We have also shown that no antibiotic treatment is necessary in the management of mild diverticulitis.
