Gastrointestinal Motility

Our dedication to research in GI motility ensures that our patients have access to the most advanced diagnostic technologies and innovative clinical therapies for these disorders.

Gastrointestinal (GI) motility refers to the movement of food from the mouth through the pharynx (throat), esophagus, stomach, small and large intestines, and out of the body.

Motility specialists identify and address conditions related to the body’s movement of food through the gastrointestinal system.
