This video demonstrates a routine sigmoid colectomy for diverticular disease. The surgeon uses ultrasonic scissors to carry out a medial mobilization of mesenteric vessels and an endo-GIA stapler to divide the vessels. The pelvic nerves are spared and a local sigmoid resection is carried out and an EEA end-to-end anastomosis is made. The specimen is removed through a small transverse midline incision.
