A number of GI issues are caused by motility disorders. Some of the more common include:

  • Fecal incontinence
  • Functional bowel disorders, irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), functional or non-ulcer dyspepsia (NUD)
  • Gastroparesis (slow gastric emptying) that can be associated with symptoms of gastroesophageal reflux, nausea, vomiting and anorexia
  • Difficult constipation due to either slow transit or disorders of evacuation
  • Pseudo-obstruction (disorders of gastric and intestinal motility) that can be associated with all of the above in addition to distension, bloating, abdominal pain, undernutrition, weight loss and constipation
  • Undiagnosed diarrheal syndromes

Though some of these conditions do not have well-defined causes or specific therapies, our highly focused therapeutic approaches, which have been evaluated critically by Mayo Clinic, can provide people relief from signs and symptoms.
