Gastrointestinal (GI) motility refers to the movement of food from the mouth through the pharynx (throat),
small and large intestines and out of the body.
The GI system is responsible for digestion. The moment you even look at food, your body starts this complicated process.
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.
Our team works closely with the minimally invasive and robot-assisted surgery teams to treat disorders of the esophagus.
There are several types of motility disorders that can occur in the stomach, such as gastroparesis and dumping syndrome.
We help treat symptoms commonly associated with intestinal motility disorders such as bloating, nausea, abdominal discomfort, weight loss, and diarrhea.
Pelvic Floor Motility
Our specialists provide comprehensive evaluation and care for pelvic floor disorders, such as fecal incontinence and constipation.
GI Motility Physicians
Motility specialists identify and address conditions related to the body’s movement of food through the gastrointestinal system. Our gastrointestinal (GI) motility and physiology program is led by
Ravinder Mittal, MD and
David C. Kunkel, MD.
The specialists in the GI motility and physiology program are involved in research studies to improve the detection and treatment of motility disorders.
