Neuromodulation for GI Disorders

7:00 - 8:00 AM Friday, Jan. 13

The management of gastrointestinal disorders can present a challenge to even the most experienced clinicians. Peripheral neurostimulation may offer relief for patients suffering from a variety of gastrointestinal symptoms. This session will review the rationale and evidence behind the use of peripheral neuromodulation in the management of gastrointestinal disorders, including fecal incontinence, low anterior resection syndrome, anorectal pain, and gastroparesis.

Learning Objectives

Upon completion of this educational activity, participants should be able to:

  • Review the evidence that supports the use of peripheral neuromodulation for gastrointestinal disorders.
  • Identify specific peripheral targets for the treatment of gastrointestinal symptoms.
  • Review appropriate patient selection and procedural approaches to optimize treatment success.
