Dr. David Samadi discusses new guidelines encouraging people to strive for better quality sleep verses more hours of sleep. Historically, we were encouraged to get a minimum of 7-8 hours of sleep, but greater health benefits may come from the quality of sleep we get.

New research indicates a lower risk of high blood pressure in those who routinely achieve deep sleep at night. Dr. Samadi explains that quality sleep allows the brain to rest and the body to restore energy. Both of these are critical in reducing a person's risk of obesity, diabetes and high blood pressure.

Dr. Samadi provides tips for reducing stress and allowing the body to prepare for better sleep. Avoid caffeine and alcohol before bed, as well as the use of electronics that can over-stimulate the brain. A nightly routine at bedtime helps the body adjust to a normal schedule; it may even help to take a warm bath a couple hours before bed. Should sleep issues persist, Dr. Samadi encourages people to reconsider the medications they take and discuss options with their doctor.

Dr. Samadi is Vice Chairman of the Department of Urology and Chief of Robotics and Minimally Invasive Surgery at The Mount Sinai Medical Center

I was diagnosed with prostate cancer in January of 2014. After researching for a surgeon the name Dr. David Samadi kept coming up for his expertise and great results. I got an appointment and went in to see Dr. Samadi and was already convinced (from what I read) that I wanted my prostate removed.
