Boston Children's motility specialists have a virtually unmatched breadth of experience in treating motility concerns in children. Because their combined knowledge of these conditions runs so deep, other motility centers from across the country and around the world will often refer patients to our team.


Personalized care

Because each team member has many years of experience researching and treating various gastrointestinal motility disorders—often specializing in specific symptoms or treatments—Boston Children's Motility and Functional Gastrointestinal Disorders Center is able to offer a multidisciplinary and customized approach to treatment for all of our patients.

This personalized approach to treatment ensures that children in our care have the best outcomes possible.

Cutting edge treatment and research

At Boston Children's, treatment goes beyond the bedside. Each member of our Motility and Functional Gastrointestinal Disorders team is also an accomplished researcher who has spent years studying the many symptoms and treatments of motility disorders. As a result, patients are guaranteed access to the latest and most cutting-edge tests and treatments for motility disorders available.

Our ongoing studies include therapeutic trials for:

  • a trial of botulinum toxin for short-segment Hirschsprung's disease

  • the role of non-acid reflux in patients with GERD

  • the study of esophageal function

  • the treatment of gastrointestinal diseases, including constipation, gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) and abdominal pain
