Dr. David Samadi, prostate cancer expert, discusses the new drug, Avastin, for treatment of ovarian cancer. The non-FDA-approved medication has shown effective in delaying ovarian cancer tumor progression by 3 months, though it does not provide any major survival benefit. Dr. Samadi explains the high risk nature of ovarian cancer, a very aggressive cancer that spreads quickly and is difficult to diagnose. Like some other cancer drugs, such as Provenge for prostate cancer, Avastin is very costly and the side effects are unknown. Avastin was denied FDA approval for breast cancer treatment in 2011.

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!

I am aware of the fact that it takes a extraordinarily rare surgeon to be the master of Robotic Laparoscopic Radical Prostatectomy.  I watched the video released by the Henri Mondor hospital before my surgery, and once again today. Although you make it seem easy to the patients and their families, your accomplishment is nearly superhuman.
