Dr. David Samadi and the Prostate Surgeries of the Future

Dr. David Samadi is one of the foremost surgeons of prostate cancer in the world. He is particularly enthusiastic about the uses of robotics in future surgeries. Samadi, who lives and works in New York, is the only surgeon who has performed a surgery using the SMART surgery technique via the da vinci robotic system. Samadi has said that the da vinci system is by far the most advanced tool for minimally invasive surgery. The current state of prostate surgery technology of any kind is a huge step up from the past traditional surgeries which required a large incision, usually resulted in lots of adverse side effects, and required much recovery time.

The now minimal incisions of the surgery mean the healing process will be much faster. Samadi says the new recuperation process now only takes one to three weeks. In addition (and most importantly to many) the da vinci system ensures that the nerves that control both the sexual system and the bladder are left whole and unharmed. He is a coveted speaker who speaks much as a valued member of both the American Urologic Association and the American Medical Association. He is also frequently invited to appear on Fox News.

So frequent, in fact, that it now takes place on a weekly basis. As a result, he is now considered a celebrity doctor. He is a huge encourager of testing for patients. He is especially so about the PSA (prostate specific antigen) test. These kinds of tests are conclusive proof about whether or not a patient requires prostate surgery. In his own practice, on average he will perform about 15 prostate surgeries a week. Because of his clear expertise in the field, he has become a very popular doctor. He has also become one of the highest-paid surgeons in the country. Samadi currently serves as the Chairman of Urology at Lenox Hill.
