DR SUDESHEN M NAIDOO

“Khalil Gibran stated the following: out of suffering have emerged the strongest souls; the most massive characters are seared with scars. His quote rings very true for me as I grew up in a family with a strong history of cancer and I personally witnessed the torment of those close to me. This inspired my passion for the healing power of science and technology which in turn cemented my pathway for becoming a Radiation Oncologist.”
