Sravanya Gavini, M.D., M.P.H.
Interim Medical Director of Gi Motility Programs
- Internal Medicine - Digestive and Liver Diseases
Sravanya Gavini, M.D., M.P.H., is an Associate Professor in the Department of Internal Medicine at UT Southwestern Medical Center, and a member of its Division of Digestive and Liver Diseases. She specializes in gastroenterology, especially motility disorders of the esophagus, and serves as medical director of the GI motility program.
Dr. Gavini earned her medical degree at the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine, where she also completed a residency in internal medicine. She then received advanced training in gastroenterology and GI motility through a fellowship at Brigham and Women’s Hospital and Harvard Medical School. During her fellowship, Dr. Gavini also performed clinical research on esophageal reflux in the lung transplant population and obtained her Master of Public Health degree.
Certified by the American Board of Internal Medicine, she joined the UT Southwestern faculty in 2015.
Dr. Gavini’s research and clinical interests are in gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD); extraintestinal manifestations of GERD, especially in patients undergoing lung transplant workup; eosinophilic esophagitis; Barrett’s esophagus; and esophageal motility disorders such as achalasia. She works closely with doctors evaluating patients for lung transplant and with surgeons evaluating patients for antireflux surgery or achalasia.
She is a member of multiple professional organizations, including the American Gastroenterological Association, the American Medical Association, the American Neurogastroenterology and Motility Society, the American Foregut Society. She is also a member of the American College of Gastroenterology and serves on their Patient Care Committee.
