    Dr. Buzad repaired my complicated diverticulitis, which had a fistula communicating with my bladder, Quite a mess on the CT scans, with significant infection and inflammation. He used the da Vinci robotic system, on which he is an expert, to perform a colectomy. Incision sizes were small, recovery relatively quick.No complications.It appears to a complete success. Dr. Buzad inspired my trust, was responsive to my concerns, is a good guy, and an exceptional communicator, encouraged my questions.
