The author presents his left colectomy technique for diffuse diverticulosis of the left colon. He uses an oncological dissection technique with a vascular approach starting with the vein and then moving on to the inferior mesenteric artery. He continues the technique with the mobilization of the splenic flexure with a posterior medial approach which is followed by a mobilization of the sigmoid and the colorectal junction, and finally by a colorectal anastomosis.
