Dejan Micic is a clinical gastroenterologist who specializes in the treatment of inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) and the management of gastrointestinal conditions that cause such nutritional disorders as short bowel syndrome and malabsorption syndrome (the inability to fully absorb necessary nutrients). He uses novel therapies to manage such infectious complications as Clostridium difficile colitis, a dangerous infection of the colon. His expertise in nutrition includes identifying malnutrition, providing nutrition education, and using alternative methods to introduce nutrients into the body, such as intravenous or intramuscular injections. He performs standard endoscopic procedures as well as those involving the small bowel. He also performs balloon-assisted enteroscopy, a procedure that is used to manage lesions or bleeding in the small bowel.
His research interests include predictive modeling of health care outcomes with respect to responses to therapy and hospitalizations, as well as translational research studies in IBD.
Micic earned an MD from the University of Wisconsin School of Medicine and Public Health, and completed his residency in internal medicine at the University of Michigan. He was chief gastroenterology fellow at the University of Chicago and also held a clinical nutrition fellowship at Northwestern University.
