According to the American Cancer Society 1 in 6 men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer in their lifetime, and 1 in 35 will die from the disease.  When caught early the disease has a 95% 5-year survival rate, and new technologies such as robotic prostatectomy surgery are being used to provide survivors with an increased quality of life post-surgery.

Dr. David Samadi, Chairman of Urology at Lenox Hill Hospital in NY and developer of the “SMART Surgery” technique for robotic prostatectomy has recently performed the very first SMART surgery at Rambam Hospital in Haifa, Israel.

Rambam, a pioneer in liver and kidney transplants is now planning to lead the way in technologically advanced prostate removal surgeries with Dr. Samadi’s help.

Robotic prostate removal allows an experienced surgeon a more precise method for performing the surgery by providing a field of view unobstructed by blood as well as visual magnification.

Dr. Samadi has been collaborating closely with Dr. Jack Baniel of Rabin Medical Center and Dr. Jacob Ramon of Tel Hashomer Hospital to mentor fellow colleagues in Israel on his SMART Surgery Technique.

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.

My story is surely the same as hundreds of patients that have gone before me, and hundreds more than will come after me. I feel, however, an uncontrollable desire to tell this story, hoping it helps someone who is in the same situation that I was and that they find it inspirational enough to make a decision that will help them feel reborn...

Αφού διαγνώστηκα με καρκίνο του προστάτη στην Αθήνα όπως ηταν αναμενόμενο ανησύχησα πολύ.  Αφού ρώτησα τριγύρω άκουσα πως ο Δρ. Σαμάντι θα ήταν η καλύτερη επιλογή.  Πολύ φίλοι τον συνέστησαν και η εμειρία τους ήταν άριστη.

It was Dr. Samadi himself wanting to speak with both of us to find out exactly what we needed and how he could help us. Dr. Samadi was a true hero in this story. I love him for what he did and would recommend him to anyone who has been diagnosed with prostate cancer.
