As a board-certified gastroenterologist, Dr. Serge Sorser cares for patients with a wide range of conditions that affect digestive health.
Proper diagnosis of a digestive disorder is key to management, and Dr. Sorser works with patients suffering from many acute and chronic conditions including reflux and its sequelae (Barrett’s esophagus/esophageal cancer), colon polyps/colon cancer prevention, diseases of the pancreas and biliary system, and inflammatory bowel disease.
“I discuss multiple treatment options, including the risks and benefits of each, and include patients in the decision-making process” says Dr. Sorser, a member of multiple professional gastroenterology societies.
Fluent in English and Russian, Dr. Sorser has lived in metro Detroit for the past 20 years and is a big fan of all Michigan sports. He currently resides in Franklin with his wife and two children. He completed his residency in internal medicine and his fellowship in gastroenterology at Providence Hospital in Southfield. Dr. Sorser also completed a therapeutic endoscopy fellowship at St. Luke’s Hospital in Milwaukee, Wis., and is actively involved in the Providence GI fellowship and multiple research studies.
In addition to performing colonoscopies to help prevent colorectal cancer, Dr. Sorser performs upper endoscopies, endoscopic ultrasounds, enteral stenting, endoscopic suturing, and endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatographies (to treat diseases of the bile and pancreatic ducts).
“Some procedures provide preventive care, while others intervene when someone is critically ill,” he says. “Sometimes we’re able to reverse the disease process and instantly make the patient better, which is very gratifying.”
