Center for GI and Motility Disorders


The Center for GI and Motility Disorders is a state-of-the-art facility offering specialized diagnostic services and treatments that help patients gain control over their digestive disorders. Located on Manhattan's Upper West Side, the Center for GI and Motility Disorders is one of only three GI Motility labs in New York City registered by the American Neurogastroenterology and Motility Society.

At the Center for GI and Motility Disorders, leading experts from Mount Sinai St. Luke's and Mount Sinai Roosevelt perform cutting-edge gastrointestinal therapies focused on the esophagus, stomach, small intestine, large intestine, and pelvic floor regions. They also work closely with the physicians of UMPA at The Esplanade to address specific GI Motility disorders prevalent in geriatric populations, including IBS, difficulty swallowing, and slow or fast gastric emptying.

Understanding and treating GI Motility disorders begins with proper diagnosis. At the Center for GI and Motility Disorders, dedicated attention is placed on muscle contraction monitoring, nerve function analysis, and transit rate measurements. Patients receive treatments not available at many other institutions. These treatments, including anorectal biofeedback therapy for evacuation disorders and sacral neuromodulation for bowel incontinence, are designed to improve overall quality of life.

Appointments with providers at the Center for GI and Motility Disorders are available throughout the week. For more information or to make an appointment, please call 212-523-CARE (2273).
