The research interests of John K. DiBaise, M.D., relate to the diagnosis and treatment of gastrointestinal motility and nutrition-related disorders.
Dr. DiBaise focuses on the:
- Clinical utility of tests used in the diagnosis of motility disorders and the treatment of gastroparesis, chronic intestinal pseudo-obstruction, irritable bowel syndrome, and short bowel syndrome
- Role of gut microbes in the pathogenesis and treatment of gastrointestinal disorders and obesity
- Pathogenesis of weight loss that occurs in patients with Parkinson's disease
Significance to patient care
Dr. DiBaise's research aims to improve the tools used to evaluate disorders of gut motility and better understand the role that gut microbes play in the success or failure of surgical weight loss procedures, such as gastric bypass, in obese individuals.
