What Is Robotic Prostate Surgery?

What is a Robotic Prostatectomy?

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.

In 2008 my husband was diagnosed with Prostate cancer with a PSA of 31.8 and a Gleason Score of 9. When we first got the news we immediately began to research different doctors and new techniques in our home country of the Netherlands and throughout Europe.

Dr. Samadi made it very clear as to his vision of me being cancer free and at the same time he considers quality of life as being extremely important. He portrayed these feelings with a real sense of commitment and confidence. I felt as if he directly spoke to me in a confident and understanding manner.

In March of 2006 I had robotic prostate surgery and was released from the hospital in 24 hours and had the catheter removed in 5 days. My PSA values have been below the detectable range for the entire year. At your hands it is the most painless and least invasive operation that a man can ever have.
