What to Expect During Your GI Pregnancy Clinic Appointment
The GI Pregnancy Clinic at UW Health in Madison, Wisconsin is a clinic dedicated to the treatment of gastrointestinal disorders in pregnancy.
New Patient Appointments
New patient appointments last about 40 minutes and follow-up visits are approximately 20 to 30 minutes long.
Testing in the form of blood work, stool studies and radiologic exams will be ordered when necessary. Routine laboratory studies can generally be completed at the UW Health West Clinic. Patients may also require endoscopic examination or other forms of testing. This will be determined on a case-by-case basis.
Frequency of Visits
Patients may require follow-up for their condition during pregnancy. For patients who are already followed by a gastroenterologist, we will work closely with that provider to ensure seemless care during pregnancy. After the pregnancy, patients will generally return to their prior provider.
Patients who do not have their own gastroenterologist and who require continued services after pregnancy-related issues have resolved will have the opportunity to transition into the UW Health general gastroenterology clinic.
