In the wake of Whitney Houston's death, Dr. David Samadi discusses our nation's epidemic with prescription drug abuse. Though toxicology reports are not yet available, the press indicates that Xanax and Valium, antibiotics, alcohol, and other prescription drugs were in Houston's room at the time of her death. Prostate cancer expert, Dr. Samadi, shares that opioid prescriptions have more than doubled in the U.S. and he believes that doctors need to exercise more caution when issuing these prescriptions. He adds that "doctor shopping" and celebrity influence may be factors, but suggests that a medical panel of doctors might be a better way to approach evaluating patient history and medical need in such cases. Patients often assume the drugs are safe because they have a prescription, but drug combinations, alcohol consumption, and overdose can severely impact patient health.

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.

The results of the surgery were astonishing, and after an amazingly short healing process, I had none of the incontinence or impotence that, unfortunately, is too often side effects of old-fashioned surgery...

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...
