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

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.

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 Da Vinci Robotic procedure has become the new “ceiling” of what medical engineering in the year 2016 can accomplish.  It has become the standard or the foundation from which greater accomplishments can be made.
