Drs. David Samadi and Mark Siegel discuss new healthcare reform policies being considered by the Obama administration and the implications for many medical procedures that are provided to people and paid for by government programs. For example, robotic prostate surgery, a procedure that is performed by highly skilled surgeons, like Dr. Samadi, will be reviewed by an independent Medicare Advisory Board that will consider if the procedure is necessary or unnecessary based on the review of general treatment outcome data and overall costs. It's unclear if the Board will consider the performance of individual surgeons and health care providers in its decision to pay for robotic prostate cancer surgeries in the future.

Testimonials
J. K., New York, USA

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.

After the shock of being diagnosed with cancer, my next step was to find the best doctor to remove the prostate. I found Dr. Samadi, and he and his team did a great job of patient in-take and supporting me practically and emotionally through the process.
