Robotic prostatectomy expert, Dr. David Samadi, strikes an unusual deal with 1984 U.S. Olympic silver medalist, Steve Benjamin.

Two years ago, Benjamin was diagnosed with prostate cancer. As a patient of Dr. Samadi's, he gave the doctor a chance to become a competitive sailor - in exchange for a cure. "He wants to win, I have to win for my patients - that's their cure and their quality of life," said Dr. Samadi.

Both with a common goal, today, Benjamin has a zero PSA level and Dr. Samadi learned to sail. Dr. Samadi is Vice Chairman of the Department of Urology and Chief of Robotics and Minimally Invasive Surgery at The Mount Sinai Medical Center

On Oct. 1, 2009, I was diagnosed with prostate cancer.  I had anticipated that the biopsy findings would be negative and I was rather shocked with this diagnosis.

PROSTATE CANCER! How could it be? I'm young and have had annual PSA tests to monitor my prostate cancer risk. I only recently began to experience sharp pain in my lower back but I knew I had to seek treatment.
