Martin K,

Earlier this year I was given the devastating news that I had prostate cancer.  I was diagnosed after a routine company medical, followed by a Biopsy.  From that day and during the following weeks I researched the subject to try and find a subtitle course of treatment.
Having quickly eliminated Radiotherapy and deciding to pursue surgery, my next step was to choose a suitable hospital, decide on the type of surgery and perhaps most importantly, select the right surgeon.

Being British I had an obvious option to utilize the National Health Service, after all I have paid into the service during my working life and perhaps it would seem foolish not to take advantage of the “free treatment”.  Faced with trying to eliminate a disease that could easily eliminate me, I decided to seek that I could find regardless of location.

From the advice I revived, one particular message kept being repeated, that message was to choose a good surgeon who had already completed a large number of similar procedures.  Following that advice I eventually decided to pay for my treatment and pursue a quality surgeon in a highly reputable hospital.  This led me to Mount Sinai Hospital in New York and to Dr. Samadi and his team.

After contacting the Urology department I was contacted by the doctors PA followed by a call from Dr. Samadi who had reviewed my case notes.  I was fully reassured by Dr. Samadi having confirmed that he could help me and was very positive regarding the planned treatment and results.  

I had my Prostate removed and was up walking later that same day.  I was issued painkillers but needed none.      My recovery was quick and four months post operation I feel good and almost back to normal.  My two PSA tests taken at 2 &4 months post operation are .004 and .003.

Did I make the right choice, yes, I have no doubt that I did make the right choice.  I wish to personally thank Dr. Samadi and his team for their skill and kindness shown during my treatment.

My e-mail address is available with Dr. Samadi's PA if anyone, particularly fellow Brits, wish to contact me directly for further advice on my experience and my recommendation to use Dr. Samadi.

Martin,
