Robotic prostatectomy surgeon, Dr. David Samadi, shares alarming news of bleeding risk associated with daily dose aspirin for the prevention of heart attacks. New research shows that daily low dose aspirin only reduces the risk of heart attack by 10%, while increasing the risk of bleeding by a staggering 30%. Dr. Samadi cautions that, in light of these findings, only patients at high risk of heart attack should continue the aspirin regimen. High-risk patients include those with a family history of heart disease or those with diabetes, high blood pressure, or peripheral vascular disease. Patients currently taking low dose aspirin on a daily basis should consult with their physicians about the preventative benefits and potential risks. Treatment benefits may still exist for those who previously suffered a heart attack or stroke.

Dr. Samadi is Chairman of Urology and Chief of Robotic Surgery at Lenox Hill Hospital in New York City.

"Just yesterday I got the results of my one month post surgery blood test, the PSA level is less than 0.1, thank you Dr. Samadi!"

I put my life, and my quality of life in the hands of the best surgeon I could find, DR. David Samadi.  My surgery was October 19th, 2009. I was walking around a few hours after surgery. I went home the next day.

The surgery was a lifesaver for my wife. Out of hospital in 24 hours, lost the catheter after six days. I was uncomfortable for a few days, but was dry at night after a week! Don't even think about it anymore. 6 weeks post surgery my PSA is 00!! I got my life and my life quality back!

G. P., New York, USA

"I am truly grateful to Dr. Samadi. The path he took from the Middle East to America enabled me and many others to have the opportunity to be helped by this caring man. A man I now call a friend. I will take a PSA in the end of May. I am confident the result will be OK just as Dr. Samadi promised."
