Gastric Motility Clinic

St. Claire HealthCare's Gastric Motility clinic specializes in treating patients suffering from gastroparesis.

Gastroparesis is a stomach disorder in which food moves through the stomach too slowly. In a healthy digestive system, strong muscular contractions move food through the digestive tract. With gastroparesis the stomach muscles work poorly, or not at all, preventing the stomach from emptying properly.

Gastroparesis can be devastating. It can cause chronic nausea and vomiting and lead to malnutrition. Constant discomfort can disrupt school, work, relationships and your social life.

There is no cure, but there are therapies that improve symptoms and offer hope for a better quality of life.

If you feel stuffed, bloated, or experience frequent vomiting or abdominal discomfort after eating even a small amount of food, talk with your primary care provider or call 606.780.5500 to request a consultation with SCH’s Gastric Motility Clinic. No referral is needed.

The Gastric Motility Clinic is located on the 3rd floor of the St. Claire Medical Pavilion at 245 Flemingsburg Rd., in Morehead, KY.
