Rambam Health Care Campus, 2:36, 12/23/2010

Dr. David Samadi has performed Rambam Health Care Campus' very first robotic prostatectomy using their newly acquired da Vinci Robotic Prostatectomy machine.  This surgery has helped Rambam join the forefront of world class hospitals who offer prostate removal by means of the da Vinci system.

The first patient at Rambam to undergo this surgery is a 72 year old man from Haifa; he is also the first man in Israel to be operated on by Dr. Samadi.  When asked how he felt about coming to Israel to do this surgery Dr. Samadi said,  "... To be able to do this is a great privilege and we're delighted to be here."

Research shows that robotic prostate surgery promotes shorter hospital stays and fewer infections, eliminates the danger of hemorrhaging, and reduces the risk of post operative sexual dysfunction.

The acquisition of the $2.6 million da Vinci system was made possible by the generosity of Fred and Nader Ohebshalom, the Iranian American Jewish Federation of New York, the Wolfson Foundation, the Crown Foundation, Alan C. Mendelson, and the Technion Israel Institute of Technology.

Testimonials
Walter K., USA

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.

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!

This is not a paid endorsement, even though it’s going to sound like one. This is just a true account of my experiences with the amazing Dr. David B. Samadi and his incredible staff in the time leading up to and following my recent robotic prostate removal surgery.

Just over a year ago on December 22, 2008 I was diagnosed with prostate cancer. I met with Dr. Samadi in New York on a recommendation from a close friend. The interview was a decisive turning point in my fortunes.
