women's healthAt University of Utah Health we understand that the gastroenterology health of women is unique. While the digestive tracks of men and women are essentially the same, issues related to hormonal fluctuations, pregnancy, and childbirth affect a woman’s digestive health. U of U Health's Gastroenterology Services has physicians and mid-levels focused on the specific needs of women and the best ways to treat them.

Treatment Areas

  • Pelvic floor disorders
  • Autoimmune / immune disorders of the GI tract
  • Functional disorders of the intestine

Our comprehensive team approach brings together experts in all areas of women’s GI health providing the best care possible.
