This patient was offered many choices when he was diagnosed with stage 1 prostate cancer. When it came down to radiation or surgery, he chose to remove the cancer, as he didn't want toxins in his body or any side effects. Robotic surgery was the ideal solution for him as his main concerns were urinary and sexual function, as well as recovery and cure. Donald was convinced he did the right thing, as he saw no change in his sex life or urinary function. He used a catheter for only one week and only had minimal pain. He took pain killers for a short amount of time and recovered quickly with no side effects. He would advise any prostate cancer patients to get rid of cancer, as it's unpredictable and every case is different. Greg would definitely do the robotic surgery again but sooner.

It was Dr. Samadi himself wanting to speak with both of us to find out exactly what we needed and how he could help us. Dr. Samadi was a true hero in this story. I love him for what he did and would recommend him to anyone who has been diagnosed with prostate cancer.

Siempre recordare el 2009 como el mas tragico de mi vida ; sin presentar sintomas y a raiz de mi examen anual de salud me fue detectado un cancer de prostata, la intuicion de mi medico personal al ver mi psa en 3.4 lo hizo referirme al urologo para que me practicase una biopsia , el mundo se me vino encima.
