Rambam Health Care Campus has joined the elite group of world-class hospitals performing operations by means of the da Vinci surgical robot. Rambam's surgeons watched live video of the groundbreaking operation performed by Dr. David Samadi, a world leader in robotic radical prostatectomy surgery.

Mr. Shalom Katz, a 72-year-old Haifa resident, is Israel’s first patient at Rambam to have undergone a prostatectomy by means of the new, sophisticated robot.

Dr. David Samadi is Vice Chairman of the Department of Urology and Chief of Robotics and Minimally Invasive Surgery at the Mount Sinai Medical Center in New York, and is considered the world's leading expert in the removal of prostate tumors. "I am very proud and privileged to be part of this groundbreaking news in Israel," said Dr. Samadi. "Israel’s first robotic prostate surgery was a great success.”

The patient's spouse, Mrs. Dina Katz, commended Dr. Samadi on the results of the minimally invasive surgery and said that both she and her husband felt very confident in Dr. Samadi’s care. Dr. Samadi, along with leading surgeons from Rambam Health Center, stressed the many advantages of robotic surgery, including fewer infections, less blood loss and a reduced risk of damage to sexual potency and urinary continence.
