In this video, Dr. Samadi explains why he opens the bladder neck early during robotic prostate surgery. He says it’s important to stay away from lateral tissues during this prostatectomy procedure. At Mt. Sinai Medical Center, Dr. Samadi says he’s fortunate to work with the latest version of the da Vinci robot, which gives him a fourth arm for increased function. The bladder neck dissection is necessary to separate the prostate from the bladder so that the cancerous prostate gland can be removed.

The next day we went to see Dr. Samadi. In walked a tall surgeon, with a great grip when he shook hands.  He proceeded to show us what the male body looked like around the prostate, and all of the work that had to be done to make sure that Ken would come out with a fully functional body, minus his prostate.


It has been nearly two weeks since Dr. Samadi performed my SMART prostatectomy!  Every day since the surgery  Dr. Samadi and his skill as a surgeon have soared in my estimation. I feel humbled and privileged to have experienced such great care.

"We interviewed 4 surgeons and 3 radiation oncologists, and decided on robotic surgery and Dr. Samadi. A urology oncologist with years of experience in open and laparoscopic prostatectomy surgery, Dr. Samadi’s extensive experience with robotic surgery made him our first choice."
