Dr. David Samadi is a board-certified urologic oncologist who is an expert in robotic prostate surgery. He performs laparoscopic and open traditional surgery at Lenox Hill Hospital. Dr. Samadi has a high reputation as Chief of Robotic Surgery and is dedicated to the early detection and diagnoses of prostate cancer. He uses the da Vinci system that is said to be more advantageous than any other form of treating prostate cancer. It can reduce the risk of complications during and after surgery, minimize scarring, and aid in quicker recovery times.
Robotic Assisted Laparoscopic Prostatectomy is a minimally invasive procedure to remove cancer in the prostate. Dr. David Samadi created his own technique Samadi Modified Advanced Robotic Technique or SMART, which combines radical prostatectomy skills with robotic surgery. Robotic surgery is so advanced that is done through remote control operation. The surgeon never touches the patient as the movements of the surgeon are translated through the sensitive fibers of the machine. The operation is performed remotely where the surgeon can be in a different hospital or state at the time of the surgery.
Dr. Samadi’s SMART technique drastically reduces pain, recovery time, and blood loss. It does not require having to cut the dorsal vein complex or open the endopelvic fascia. It allows him to perform surgery with excellent precision and removes the prostate gland without damaging the surrounding tissue. Any type of surgical procedure can be risky. When it comes to prostate cancer treatment, surgery is the most effective option. Cancer tumors can be removed without the side effects of radiation or chemotherapy. The da Vinci system greatly lowers the risk of infection during prostate surgery. The incisions that are made are less than two inches, making the wounds heal much faster. Dr. David Samadi is a compassionate surgeon who has performed over 7,000 robotic prostate surgeries.
