Liquid biopsies work by filtering blood to find epithelial cells.  These cells are found in blood in 85-90% of cancers.   Through this process doctors can see what type of cancer a patient has, track the cells in the blood to see where they're going, and customize treatment to target the specific cells found instead of the whole body.  This can aid in preventing these cells from spreading to other organs in the body.

* The benefits of robotic surgery cannot be guaranteed as surgery is both patient and procedure specific. Previous surgical results do not guarantee future outcomes.

I cannot begin to tell you the reaction that I receive when I tell people that I was operated on just three weeks ago and what a remarkable surgeon you are.. I just want to reiterate how fabulous you staff is and how deeply indebted I am to you.

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.

We are both so grateful for your continued excellent care and treatment!

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.
