Dr. Sorger is THE BEST. I would highly recommend him to anyone. I couldn’t imagine my shoulder replacements going any better than they did. They feel great & my scars are minimal thanks to his amazing skills and intelligence. If you are choosing doctors, you would be crazy not to choose Dr. Sorger!
I’m 38 and was suffering from advanced arthritis in my right hip. After years of severe pain and being told I was too young for a hip replacement, I was referred to Dr. Sorger and within less than a year, I am beginning to get my life back. My anterior hip replacement went without incident. I feel amazing!!!
Dr. Sorger is a very kind and understanding doctor. I had hip replacement with him, and the work he did was great. The recovery was quick, very small amount of pain. He’s a wonderful doctor. The best!
