Dr. David Samadi discusses how electronic medical records (EMR) are improving the healthcare process, and the role that computers, such as IBM's "Watson", will one day play in helping in diagnosis and treatment.

Watson, developed by IBM and made famous for its role as a contestant on Jeopardy!, is a super-computer that is designed to process large amounts of data and generate answers to questions when provided information in standard human language. It's believed that one day computational and reasoning abilities like Watson's will be able to assist in the diagnosis of medical conditions and provide treatment options for patients.

I chose to undergo the operation with a specialist in the U.S., who has an extensive experience in robotic surgeries: Dr. David Smadi. The surgery was relatively simple: i didn't suffer any pain, lost a small amount of blood and had the catheter only for seven days. I got back to full functioning very soon afterwards.

It is now more than a week post-op and all is well (including path reports). Once again, I thank Dr. Samadi and all at Mount Sinai for the opportunity to be cared for by the best.?

I am pleased and proud to add my comments to the patients list of success stories. I had been affected by BPH (growing prostate) for 10 years.

Several weeks ago I found myself not waking from a nightmare but waking into one. This was after being diagnosed with cancer. My life was spiraling out of control and reaching the epitome of despair. In a true sense of the word, I was experiencing an existential crisis. At moments I even questioned whether my life was worth going forward.
