The Annual Neurogastroenterology Motility Conference will discuss the following practiuce gaps:

Management principles and best practices in refractory reflux disease. Physicians may not be aware of the management of newer diagnostic procedures such as postprandial manometry or endoflip for the evaluation of esophageal disorders and management strategies such as diaphragmatic breathing therapy for GERD.  Surgical management of reflux disease. Physicians may not be aware of newer consensus for the management of GERD and refractory GERD. Newer modalities such as Linx procedure or endoscopic TIF are available which are not widely available and only performed at specialized centers such as OSU.  Diagnosis and management of Gastroparesis.
