Women’s GI Health Care

At Midwest Endoscopy Center, we understand that female GI care (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 can affect a woman’s digestive health. Midwest Endoscopy Center has physicians and staff focused on the specific needs of women and the best ways to treat them.

Areas of focus include GI pelvic floor disorders, autoimmune/immune disorders of the GI tract, and functional disorders of the intestines. Our comprehensive, team approach brings together experts who provide the best care possible in all areas of women’s GI health.

Comprehensive, collaborative care by women and for women.

Midwest Endoscopy Center also has female physicians, Dr. Sushama Gundlapalli and Dr. Shivani Kiriluk, and staff who cater to the specific physical and cultural needs of our female patients. We treat women for all major diseases and conditions of the intestine and liver, including:
