Dr. Sadi received his medical degree from the University of Baghdad/Iraq. With a passion for surgery, Dr. Sadi went on to attend and conduct research at Georgetown University and Georgetown University Hospital Center/Lombardi Cancer Center. He completed his residency in general surgery at Medstar Georgetown University-Washington Hospital Center. During his training he learned more about the obesity epidemic saw first-hand how morbidly obese patients could benefit from an improved quality of life. Dr. Sadi was drawn to robotic surgery and its positive outcomes for bariatric and general surgery patients.

Dr. Sadi went on to receive further training in minimally invasive robotic bariatric and advanced GI surgery through a one-year fellowship with the Albany Medical Center, during which time he performed more than 300 robotic procedures. He also received robust training in robotic incisional hernia repair and advanced abdominal wall reconstruction, including the novel approach of enhanced view totally-extra-peritoneal eTEP procedure for incisional hernia repair. This advanced minimally invasive approach repairs the abdominal wall with a shorter hospital stay compared to open hernia repair.
