GI Motility Center
GI Motility Programs
Your digestive system is a miracle of muscles, valves, digestive juices and nutrient absorption.
The synchronized, wave-like movement of your digestive system’s muscles, which push food through the various parts of the system, is known as motility. Disturbances of gastrointestinal motility can cause a variety of symptoms, pain or discomfort and a loss of nutrient absorption.
The GI Motility Program at University of Florida provides referring physicians with complete tests of motility and gastro-intestinal functioning. The test summaries are available within 24 hours. Our comprehensive reports provide an analysis of motility tracings and expert comments.
