Caption: “We found that patients with diverticulosis have a lower incidence of polyps overall and a tendency for less-advanced polyps,” says Ali Nawras, M.D., chief of Endoscopy Services, Division of Gastroenterology at Henry Ford Hospital, and lead author of the study. “These results suggest that for patients with diverticulosis, a less-aggressive surveillance regimen could be appropriate.”
