GI Motility Program

GI motility refers to the progression of food, fluids and waste through the digestive tract. Motility problems include acid reflux, chronic constipation and incontinence.

Cedars-Sinai's GI Motility Program is unique among motility centers because it treats almost all GI motility problems. We focus on the diagnosis and treatment of these digestive tract problems. Our program offers the most advanced diagnosis and treatment methods and is recognized throughout the world for our latest research discoveries, which are already being used to help patients.
