Hard To Find A Surgeon Trained In G-POEM

I’m Paula. I was diagnosed with gastropresis in December of 2016. I’ve had Botox on my vagus nerve but that only helped temporarily. I’m seeing my GI doctor soon and we’re looking at either pyloroplasty or G-POEM as a next step. Hopefully it’s the G-POEM because that’s less invasive but I’m told it can be hard to find a surgeon trained in G-POEM. 
I’m a wife, married 31 years. I have two sons, ages 31 & 24.

About the author: Gastroparesis: Fighting For Change Admin

We created this website to provide the public with additional information regarding Gastroparesis. It is our goal to connect users with our Facebook advocacy group, “Gastroparesis: Fighting for Change.”

Our Gastroparesis: Fighting for Change Facebook group was formed to unite people with Gastroparesis and other digestive and motility disorders to work for change. It is not a typical GP support group, as we do not discuss personal medical issues. Rather, we established this as a place where members can discuss ideas regarding our mission, vision, goals, needs, services, and resources to work toward solutions. So if you want to make a difference for our GP community, we encourage you to share your ideas! Additionally, we need you to help us fight for changes in legislation! Also, you can help raise funds! Finally, you can help spread awareness! Please join our main group. We would love to have you!

You can find links to our Community Page and our Advocacy Group on our Resources Tab.

In order to accomplish our goals, we will be sharing many ways you can get involved on our Campaigns Tab.
