While everyone’s choice of treatment should and will be different, I know by my outcome and recovery as well as my Dad, that choosing the Samadi Team and Mount Sinai Medical Center  as my hospital choice, was the right decision.

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!
