While there is no real cure for baldness, some treatments are available explains Dr. Samadi, robotic prostatectomy specialist. Male pattern baldness can be treated topically with drugs such as Rogaine, or with daily medication such as Propecia. Both treatments must be continued to maintain hair growth benefits. Dr. Samadi cautions about the potential negative side effects of Propecia, including erectile dysfunction and reduced libido. Drugs such as Propecia can also be very costly.

My husband and I have been extolling the virtues of Dr. David Samadi and Mt. Sinai Hospital since my husband’s robotic prostatectomy March 11, 2009, and we thought you would like to know of our positive experience...

"I was discharged from the hospital within 24 hours of being admitted and had my catheter removed in less than a week. I've had no obvious sign of blood loss since the surgery and no complications. Five days following the surgery, my wife and I were dancing at a wedding!"
