Dr. David Samadi, Vice Chairman of the Department of Urology and Chief of Robotics and Minimally Invasive Surgery at The Mount Sinai Medical Center, uses Prostate Cancer Awareness Month to share reminders about early screening and treatment options.
 
Dr. Samadi stresses the importance of a PSA level baseline test at age 40, with annual follow-ups at age 45. For those men who are high-risk - African Americans, older men, and those with a family history - annual screening should begin earlier.
 
As a robotic prostatectomy expert, Dr. Samadi stresses the benefits of removing the cancerous prostate through robotic surgery with an experienced surgeon. His own SMART (Samadi Modified Advanced Robotic Technique) surgery improves cure rate and offers significant post-surgery benefits. Men are able to resume their quality of life much quicker after robotic surgery, with excellent sexual potency and urinary continence results.
 
Dr. Samadi also reminds women about their key role in helping men fight prostate cancer with early, annual screenings.

Testimonials

The operation went like clockwork and was successful. My stay at Mt. Sinai for a little over 24 hours went just as Dr. Samadi had explained at our first consultation .There were no surprises or unexpected incidents. The staff at Mt. Sinai were great. My post operative recovery is progressing well...

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!

In March of 2006 I had robotic prostate surgery and was released from the hospital in 24 hours and had the catheter removed in 5 days. My PSA values have been below the detectable range for the entire year. At your hands it is the most painless and least invasive operation that a man can ever have.

I learned I had prostrate cancer in late May 2010. I am 67 years old, diabetic, and had both TURP surgery and hernia surgery in the past. Being a Jehovah's Witness I was very concerned about the blood issue. Since conventional prostrate surgery is very bloody, it was not an option.
