Care at 4 locations
The Neurointestinal and Motility Program (NIM) provides comprehensive diagnostic evaluation and treatment for patients suffering from complex motility disorders. These range from conditions such as achalasia, gastroparesis, pseudo-obstruction, and Hirschsprung’s disease to functional gastrointestinal disorders including cyclic vomiting syndrome, chronic nausea and abdominal pain, and chronic constipation. The NIM program is the only comprehensive pediatric motility program in the state of Illinois and one of only a few in the United States. It collaborates closely with a variety of departments throughout the institution to provide the most thorough and complete review of our patients.
The program is led by John E. Fortunato, Jr, MD, Neurointestinal & Motility Program Director and Attending Physician in the Division of Gastroenterology, Hepatology and Nutrition.
