Excellence in robotic prostate surgery will soon have a new address as David B.

For the past six years Dr. Samadi has served patients as Chief of Robotics and Minimally Invasive Surgery and Vice Chairman of the Department of Urology at The Mount Sinai Medical Center.
Dr. Samadi brings with him a staff of 20 professionals, including his dedicated surgical team.

His custom procedure and extensive surgical background will spearhead the new Prostate Cancer Center at Lenox Hill Hospital, inclusive of the da Vinci Surgical System robot.
“The new Prostate Cancer Center will give us tremendous opportunities to support men and their families as they fight prostate cancer,” said Dr. Samadi. “I look forward to sharing this new phase with my team and our family of patients.”
