Dr. Sadowski is a staff gastroenterologist at the Royal Alexandra Hospital in Edmonton. His clinical interests are in gastrointestinal motility disorders and inflammatory bowel disease. He also serves as the Quality Lead for the Alberta Colorectal Cancer Screening Program.

Outside medicine, Dr. Sadowski is an avid canoeist – each spring he goes completely off the grid to paddle the rivers of Canada’s great north. He is interested in music and plays the piano and classical guitar. He normally has 4-5 books on the go at any one time in the areas of history (particularly WW2) and popular science.


See my podcast GI 101 (available on iTunes and YouTube - Gastro 101). This podcast covers common clinical problems in digestive disease with an emphasis on GI motility disorders.


Research interests:

  • diagnostic testing for esophageal motility disorders
  • quality outcomes in colorectal cancer screening
  • post - colonoscopy colon cancer
