Abdominal Pain and Motility, and Pelvic Floor Disorders

The disorders that are covered in this core can be complex, as they may involve the gastrointestinal tract, genitourinary tract and/or the pelvic musculoskeletal system. Therefore, a multidisciplinary evaluation is important. This core combines the expertise of colorectal and gastrointestinal surgeons, gastroenterologists, gynecologist, urologists, therapists, psychologists and primary care physicians. For most patients, medical treatment or biofeedback is successful. For those patients who require surgery, minimally invasive and laparoscopic techniques are often utilized.
