Dr Cadili Specialty:

He began his career as a general specialist and he didn’t feel the urge to specialize at that time. He kept postponing his choice of speciality for a couple of years to be sure to choose the right one for him, he also took the time to seek counsel of others. After a long deliberation, Dr Cadili chose to specialize in Surgical Critical Care/Acute Care Surgery. It wasn’t an easy decision for him since he loved General Surgery so much, but he felt that he was needed there and that he could make a difference. It is with his specialty finally chosen that he started doing his work and researches that would change the medical industry.
