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.

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.

"I am truly grateful to Dr. Samadi. The path he took from the Middle East to America enabled me and many others to have the opportunity to be helped by this caring man. A man I now call a friend. I will take a PSA in the end of May. I am confident the result will be OK just as Dr. Samadi promised."
