Robotic prostatectomy is a radical prostatectomy that is also known as Robotic Assisted Laparoscopic Prostatectomy (RALP). It is a minimally invasive prostate removal and cancer treatment surgery. Dr. Samadi developed his signature SMART (Samadi Modified Advanced Robotic Technique) Prostate Surgery, which incorporates oncologic principles, combines it with open radical prostatectomy skills and builds upon it with a robotic surgery approach.
SMART is a revolutionary and advanced prostate cancer surgery and prostate cancer treatment method, which drastically reduces blood loss, pain, hospital stay, recovery time and the side effects of other types of prostate cancer treatments. The SMART Technique is also known as bloodless prostate surgery. The SMART Technique does not require opening the endopelvic fascia or cutting the dorsal vein complex. This results in no sutures and less damage to the neurovascular bundle.
Dr. Samadi is able to enter into the patient through a few small "keyhole" entrances and handle the SMART robotic surgery with very tiny and precise instruments that allow him to perform the surgery with great precision and remove the patient's prostate gland without doing any harm to surrounding tissue. The patient is left with only a few small marks on his abdomen - none of the scars normally associated with prostate cancer treatment and surgery.
Dr. Samadi is the leader in this field and delivers top results to his patients, with the help of the da Vinci surgical robot by Intuitive Surgical. He has operated on many celebrities, including Roy Emerson, Hall of Fame Tennis Pro. He is a frequent expert medical contributor, as part of FOX News Medical A-Team. He has been interviewed and featured in many leading publications , such as Forbes and New York Magazine.
He presents his clinical research at medical conferences as a subject matter expert nationally and internationally and has written many medical papers on prostate cancer and robotic surgery. Samadi has lectured internationally and trains doctors in robotic surgery. A member of the American Urologic Association and the American Medical Association, his work has been reported on in many medical journals in addition to numerous websites on the Internet.
