National Jewish Outreach Program (NJOP) recognizes Dr. Samadi and Honorable Senator Joseph Lieberman for invaluable contributions

NEW YORK, Feb. 10, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- On Monday evening, February 13, 2012, the National Jewish Outreach program will hold its Eighteenth Annual Dinner at the Grand Hyatt New York. The dinner will honor Dr. David B. Samadi, an outstanding individual whose invaluable contributions have enabled NJOP to provide thousands of Jews with a greater connection to Judaism.

Born and raised in Iran, Dr. David B. Samadi had a Jewish upbringing quite different than the typical American experience. Rather than going to Yeshiva, which was unheard of in the Islamic country, Dr. Samadi attended a Catholic school, and lessons on his own religion were delivered by his father during the 45-minute drive to school. Dr. Samadi was forced to leave his homeland after the Revolution of 1979 made living as a Jew in Iran virtually impossible, but that did nothing to shake the deep connection to Judaism that had already been established in Dr. Samadi's consciousness.

Today, Dr. Samadi is the Vice Chairman, Department of Urology, and the Chief of Robotics and Minimally Invasive Surgery at The Mount Sinai Medical Center in New York City. As a board-certified urologist and an oncologist specializing in the diagnosis and treatment of urologic diseases, kidney cancer, bladder cancer, and prostate cancer, he also specializes in many advanced minimally invasive treatments for prostate cancer, including his newest robotic surgery procedure, SMART Surgery (Samadi Modified Advanced Robotic Technique).  Along with a colleague, he has the distinction of performing the first eleven robotic prostate surgeries in the world.

Also being honored at the NJOP dinner are Senator Joseph Lieberman, Susan Hecht and David Cohen, Diane and Rabbi Daniel Cohen, and NJOP Associate Director, Rabbi Yitzchak Rosenbaum.

I learned I had prostrate cancer in late May 2010. I am 67 years old, diabetic, and had both TURP surgery and hernia surgery in the past. Being a Jehovah's Witness I was very concerned about the blood issue. Since conventional prostrate surgery is very bloody, it was not an option.
