Yehuda Ringel, MD

Clinical Interests: Neurogastroenterology and Motility - the wide spectrum of disorders related to abnormal gastrointestinal function including: upper GI disorders (e.g., functional dyspepsia, nausea, vomiting, and gastroparesis), lower GI disorders (chronic constipation, diarrhea and IBS) and generalized functional and motility disorders (e.g., abdominal bloating, functional abdominal pain, and chronic intestinal pseudo-obstruction).

Academic Interests: Dr. Ringel's research interests relate to the brain-gut axis; specifically the interaction between environmental (e.g., diet, infection), physiological and psychosocial factors and their contribution to the clinical presentation and outcome of functional GI and motility disorders. He is currently investigating the role of the intestinal microbiome and immune function in the etiopathogenesis of irritable bowel syndrome (IBS). Other areas of activities include the design, evaluation and conduct of translational and clinical trials evaluating new drugs, dietary and food supplements, and new approaches for diagnosis and treatment of patients with these disorders.
