Our Approach and Services

Women experience gastrointestinal issues at a rate two times higher than men, underscoring the need for care tailored to the female body and its unique physiology. Specific factors such as pregnancy, hormonal shifts, and the structure of the pelvic floor further emphasize the need for customized care.

At New York Gastroenterology Associates (NYGA), we have a dedicated team of gastroenterologists and dietitians who specialize in addressing the distinct needs of women. We collaborate with experts from diverse fields like gynecology, urology, surgery, pelvic floor physiotherapy, and mental health for comprehensive patient-focused care.

We treat the full spectrum of digestive problems that disproportionately or exclusively affect women, including:

  • Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS)
  • Pregnancy-related issues, including constipation, acid reflux, pelvic floor problems, and “morning sickness”
  • Gallstones or gallbladder disease, common during pregnancy, and weight fluctuations
  • Celiac disease
  • Constipation, often triggered by hormonal fluctuations, pregnancy, and diet
  • Pelvic floor disorders, including chronic bowel dysfunction, pelvic floor dysfunction, pelvic organ prolapse, and incontinence issues resulting from pregnancy, childbirth, and trauma
  • Inflammatory bowel disease (IBD): specialized approaches for patients with Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis related to fertility, pregnancy, and post-partum pelvic health
