Gastroparesis literally means paralyzed stomach. It is one of the most severe and complicated gastric motility disorders. Approximately 5 million Americans, including children, suffer from gastroparesis. In some instances, it appears for a brief time and goes away on it’s own or improves with treatment. Many cases are refractory and do not respond well to treatment.
