Surviving Cancer to Sail Again
As I began to feel better after my surgery I was searching for a way to say thank you to my doctor David Samadi. I had already promised to take him sailing, and came up with the idea of a setting a sponsor spinnaker when he came out. Working with Whitney Gladstone at North Graphics and with the Dr.’s web designer, we came up with a bold design and Whitney made it happen.
Prostatectomía robótica, una opción efectiva para tratar cáncer de próstata y de ganglios
Desde 2002, los pacientes con cáncer de próstata cuentan con una opción efectiva para tratar esta enfermedad. Se trata de la Cirugía Robótica Asistida, también conocida como Prostatectomía Laparoscópica, un método desarrollado por el doctor David Samadi, usando el robot Da Vinci, que sirve para realizar cirugías con la mínima invasión radical, es decir, evitan los grandes cortes con bisturí de las cirugías tradicionales.
למרות שהוא חסיד של השיטה הרובוטית, טוען סמא
כשד"ר דיוויד ב. סמאדי מדבר על
ניתוחי ערמונית, עולם הדימויים שלו
ממש לא מתכתב עם הזירה הרפואית:
"זה כמו הקומנדו הישראלי שרו־
צה ללכוד את הטרוריסט המסוכן בלי שהוא יבין
בכלל מה הולך איתו". או: "זה כמו ב'משימה בלתי
אפשרית' כשטום קרוז מנסה לפרוץ לבנק. אתה
מנסה לעבור בשיא השקט דרך כל מחסומי הלייזר
והאזעקות, ולהגיע לכספת".
The Father's Day gift that keeps on giving
Without further ado, here's a Booster Shots tribute to dads and their families, courtesy of Dr. Marc Siegel, a practicing internist who writes the Unreal World column for the Health section, and Dr. David Samadi, a practicing urologist and the chief of robotics at Mt. Sinai Medical Center in New York.
Injecting Value Into Medical Decisions
In Debate on Reform, Many Say Quality Should Trump Quantity, But What’s Best Isn’t Always Clear. It’s widely estimated that 30% of U.S. health-care spending—some $700 billion a year—is spent on tests, treatments and procedures that provide no value. But one man’s waste may be another’s life-saving treatment.
Active Surveillance in Prostate Cancer Patients May Not Be Best Option
Men with seemingly low-risk prostate cancer who are considered candidates for an active surveillance strategy might want to consider robotic-assisted laparoscopic prostatectomy (RALP) instead, a team from Mount Sinai Medical Center in New York City reported here at the European Association of Urology 25th Annual Congress.
High BMI Should Not Exclude Patients From Robotic Prostatectomy
BARCELONA — Prostate cancer patients who are otherwise candidates for a robotic-assisted laparoscopic prostatectomy (RALP) should not be denied the procedure because of a high body mass index (BMI), researchers reported here at the European Association of Urology 25th Annual Congress. The advice comes from a team at Mount Sinai Medical Center in New York City.
RALP May Be Better than Active Surveillance
BARCELONA—Prostate cancer patients who are eligible for active surveillance may actually benefit from robotic-assisted laparoscopic prostatectomy (RALP), according to data announced at the 25th Anniversary European Association of Urology Congress.
Mount Sinai To Move Into $1B Campaign's Public Phase
According to hospital leaders, the campaign is a signal that the Upper East Side hospital — which five years ago was hemorrhaging millions of dollars each year — has not only rebounded from its financial troubles, but is pressing forward with the next phase of its strategic plan.
Prostate Cancer And Your Man: What You Need To Know
As we come to the close of September, National Prostate Cancer Awareness Month, wowOwow sits down to talk with the internationally noted urology surgeon David B. Samadi, Chief, Division of Robotics and Minimal Invasive Surgery, Mount Sinai School of Medicine.
Diagnosing Prostate Cancer
The prostate is a small gland as big as a walnut that’s part of a man’s reproductive system. It is located in front of the rectum and under the bladder. It encircles the urethra. It helps make semen - the milky fluid that carries sperm from the testicles through the penis when a man ejaculates.
Preventive Measures for your Prostate
Caring for the prostate should not begin when you have an enlarged prostate, but when it’s normal and healthy. Today many researchers are looking for non-invasive ways to control the enlargement of the prostate so that it does not develop into prostate cancer later on.
Treatment for Bladder Cancer
Bladder cancer ranks fifth among the top ten cancers that affect males. It is considered one of the most common malignant cancers and the tenth leading cause of cancer death. It manifests as a tumor of the bladder.
Robotic prostatectomy, also known as Robotic Assisted Laparoscopic Prostatectomy, is an alternative prostate surgical procedure. This state-of-the-art, revolutionary, and advanced surgical procedure profoundly decreases pain, blood loss, recovery time, and the unwanted side effects...
Robotics in Medical Surgery
The da Vinci Surgical System, ZEUS Robotic Surgical System and AESOP Robotic System are the top three electronic applications of robotics in the field of medical surgery globally.
Prostatectomy - Prostate Removal Surgery
The volume of robotic procedures has increased dramatically since 2002, when laparoscopic surgeries outnumbered robotic.
Organ-confined prostate cancer and the emergence of robotic prostatectomy.
Prostate cancer is the fourth most common neoplasm worldwide, and the most common visceral neoplasm in the United States. With the advent of serum prostate-specific antigen (PSA) testing in the late 1980s and increasing awareness of men’s health issues, prostate cancer is a primary concern in the minds of many aging males.
The Humanity Behind Robotics
In popular culture, robots are often portrayed as inhuman: precise, tireless - and cold. Does this mean robot-assisted surgeries lack a human touch? Not at all, according to Dr. David Samadi. In fact, the robot is an extension of the surgeon - and the surgery is all about being human.
Técnica, cerebro y corazón
El primer encuentro con el doctor David Samadi surge por casualidad un día antes de la entrevista en su oficina del número 625 de la avenida de Madison, al final de un trayecto de tren desde Newark hasta Manhattan. Es una tarde gris y con un paisaje decadente, que deja atrás vallas retorcidas, hangares abandonados en medio de charcos de lluvia y puentes roñosos. Entablo una conversación formal con una pareja de ancianos neoyorquinos.
Technology, Head and Heart
The first encounter about Dr. Samadi came by chance a day before the interview at his office at 625 Madison Ave., during the final stretch of the train trip from Newark to Manhattan. The afternoon was grey and the landscape looking out the train windows was one of decay, leaving behind twisted fences, abandoned hangars in the midst of puddles of rain and rusty bridges.
