Description

Join UF Health Wellness University for a seminar — you can choose to attend in person or online via Zoom. No matter how you choose to attend, registration is required.

Your colon is generally smooth, which helps it easily absorb water and nutrients and allow the rest to pass through on the digestive journey. Over time, small pockets, called diverticula, can form in your colon. For most people, they don’t cause any problems. For some, they may cause changes in bowel movements or pain.

Diverticulitis occurs when fecal matter becomes trapped in these diverticula and causes inflammation and infection. Some people will continue to experience diverticulitis attacks, which may eventually require surgery. Learn more about managing and treating diverticulitis including a minimally invasive robotic–assisted procedure that can eliminate this condition with smaller incisions and a faster recovery time.

Let us know below if you plan to attend in person or online via Zoom by
