A motility disorder, which inhibits the movement of food, liquid and waste through your digestive system, can cause pain, bloating, diarrhea, constipation and a wide range of other uncomfortable symptoms. Motility disorders can involve any part of the gastrointestinal (GI) tract including the esophagus, stomach, small intestines and colon.
Neurogastroenterologists at California Pacific Medical Center use advanced motility testing to measure the function of the digestive tract and make an accurate diagnosis. For example, we offer wireless motility capsule technology (SmartPill™), which measures transit times through the stomach, small bowel and colon, as well as contractions throughout the GI tract, to help diagnose disorders. Our goal is to help you gain control over your symptoms and improve your daily life.
