The Comparison of Surgery and Medicine on the Impact of Diverticulitis (COSMID) study aims to test if, from a patient’s perspective, partial colectomy is better than medical management for the treatment of quality of life (QoL)-limiting diverticulitis. We hypothesize that partial colectomy will be better than medical management with respect to patient-reported and patient-centered outcomes. A large-scale pragmatic, randomized trial is expected to result in better understanding of the best management of a common gastrointestinal, QoL-limiting condition in patients nationwide. Understanding which patient subgroups benefit from partial colectomy and which patient subgroups benefit from best medical management will improve patient choice and support a shift from practice variations dependent on provider preferences or precedent to clinical care that corresponds to selecting the right treatment for the right patient at the right time.
