Dr. Venkatesan's Care Philosophy

I am a general gastroenterologist with a research interest in gastrointestinal disorders in women. I am especially interested in cyclic vomiting syndrome which is a chronic disorder characterized by recurrent episodes of vomiting which often can go under diagnosed. I have a special clinic for this at Froedtert with a multidisciplinary approach to this problem. In addition, I have an interest in the impact of GI disorders on various phases in a womens lifepuberty, pregnancy and menopause.
