Dr. Samadi explains the new AUA prostate cancer screening guidelines and how patients should interpret them. Overdiagnosis is a common concern about the PSA test, but Dr. Samadi points out that it shouldn't lead to overtreatment. Elevated PSA levels should be considered in the context of family history and other prostate cancer risk factors, under the guidance of a prostate cancer expert. Dr. Samadi addresses the new guidelines against testing younger men by citing the large volume of men in his own practice with advanced prostate cancer in their early 40s. Dr. Samadi encourages early testing, stating that 30% of prostate cancer cases prove understaged and undergraded in post-surgery analysis. Improved genetic screening and prostate cancer testing are needed, Dr. Samadi stresses.

These prostate cancer medications can cause diabetes, heart attack, stroke and sudden death. The drugs lower testosterone levels and give men symptoms of menopause. Samadi believes it's best to cure prostate cancer early on with robotic surgery, which completely removes prostate cancer and brings PSA levels to zero. Prostate cancer can't be prevented but healthy diets and exercise help.

Protecting Men from Prostate Cancer

September is Prostate Cancer Awareness Month.  Prostate cancer is a disease that affects 1 out of every 6 men. Early prostate cancer detection and treatment can mean the difference between life and death. The good news from Dr. David Samadi, Chairman of Urology and Chief of Robotic Surgery at Lenox Hill Hospital in New York, is that he's able to provide invaluable recommendations and guidance about prostate cancer screening and treatment. The average age of men with prostate cancer is 69, but there are several other factors (including genetic history and ethnicity) that can contribute to the likelihood of men developing this disease.

Recognizing the Signs of BPH

Dr. Samadi discusses benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH), enlarged prostate growth, on Fox News. BPH is a common disorder of the prostate that affects 1 and 4 men by the age of 55. Each year more than 20 million men are diagnosed with BPH. BPH is non-cancerous. BPH causes frequent urination and leakage. Treatments include herbal medications, laser surgery, TURP, open surgery, or medications like Proscar or Avodart. Dr. Samadi recommends that his patients use these medications combined with Flomax, for example, because of the side effects that include sexual dysfunction and elevated PSA levels. Surgery should be a last resort for BPH treatment.

Attention Men: the Facts on Prostate Cancer Screening and Treatment

This video discusses how effective robotic surgery is in removing a cancerous prostate through the abdomen, with less anesthesia, less blood, no stitches, faster recovery and a preservation of continence and sexual function. The surgeon, Dr. Samadi, is in complete control, navigating the high definition and magnification camera in the abdomen and moving the robot's arms, whose wrists can move in every direction with a full range of motion in a delicate, narrow space.

Our Future Is Already in the Hands of Robots

Every day humans are in need of help from robots. David B. Samadi, MD, the Chief of Robotics and Minimally Invasive Surgery at Mount Sinai School of Medicine in New York City is showing and explaining how a prostate removal surgery is performed with the help of a robotic system called the da Vinci Robot. Using this system is a less traumatic and minimally invasive alternative for treating and removing prostate cancer. The da Vinci robotic system enables surgeons to overcome many of the shortcomings of both open prostatectomy and laparoscopic radical prostatectomy.

Prostate Cancer Prevention

Dr. David Samadi discusses prostate cancer as a serious health issue for men. Over 27,000 die from it each year, making it the 2nd leading cause of death after lung cancer. Screening and detection are very important. Men need to ask for PSA test in their yearly exam, and keep a record of the scores. The scores may be normal, but must be looked at for velocity & changes over time. Frequent urination sometimes indicates an enlarged prostate gland. Prevention includes a healthy lifestyle, exercise, quit smoking, decrease alcohol consumption, maintain a diet that is low in fat and high in fiber. Samadi encourages men to get annual check up including the PSA. Prostate cancer is not a death sentence. High tech radiation and robotic surgery techniques can save lives, sexual function and continence.

Dr. David Samadi & Dr. Manny Alvarez Discuss The Cyberknife Treatment

The cyberknife technology for prostate cancer consists of a robotic arm, which is controlled by a computer. The computer dictates angles of radiation and gives focused treatments, sparing the delicate surrounding tissues. It allows for tracking of the target with seeds, which is the only form of radiation to achieve this. It provides unparalleled accuracy and can allow for the acceleration of doses.

There are low secondary side effects, such as rectal/bladder cancer malignancy, incontinence, impotence and low morbidity, which is better than other forms of radiation. The total dose is less than half of the standard dose, but since it's given in 5 days, it is much more powerful.

Study Suggests Avodart May Prevent Prostate Cancer

Dr. David Samadi breaks down what the GlaxoSmithKline drug Avodart can do. Dr. Samadi discusses how not all men should take Avodart. The drug inhibits testosterone and prostate enlargement.

The side effects include reduced libido, cardiac issues, but may also help baldness. But it also reduces the PSA which is what Samadi uses as a benchmark for tracking prostate cancer.
