In brief: Curable

Diverticulitis can usually be treated medically (with antibiotics), but when there are complications or recurring episodes surgery may be indicated, in which case the disease can be cured with an operation to remove the diseased portion of the colon (usually the sigmoid colon) and this can usually be done laparoscopically.
