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. However it only lowers the slower type of prostate cancer and not the aggressive type. He would only give the drug to those with an enlarged prostate or a family history. 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.

I am aware of the fact that it takes a extraordinarily rare surgeon to be the master of Robotic Laparoscopic Radical Prostatectomy.  I watched the video released by the Henri Mondor hospital before my surgery, and once again today. Although you make it seem easy to the patients and their families, your accomplishment is nearly superhuman.
