Dear Dr. Samadi,

Your fame as the “Leonardo” of the Da Vinci robotic prostate surgery is well known. It is also documented by the many testimonials of your patients. I would like to add my own experience to show how masterfully you also apply your unique skills and methodology to the most demanding surgery of this type – removal of the bladder as well as prostate – as you did in my case.

Another challenging factor in this surgery was my high-risk age of 84. I believe this may be the top age level at which such surgery has been done. My wife and I are very grateful to you for accepting my surgery under such challenging circumstances.

Choosing you for the robotic surgery was a clear-cut decision. An MD friend of ours asked a panel of five Manhattan doctors who their best choice would be for surgery of this type. Each named Mount Sinai Robotics and Minimally Invasive Surgery as the only one they would recommend.

When we first met you, we were impressed by your high professional standards:
  • Your explanations in the field of robotics, built by over 3,000 surgies
  • The personal care you take of your patients and their individual problems and needs
  • Preventing unrelated health problems that might endanger the patient (e.g. a DVT filter)
Your expertise as a pioneering leader in the field of robotics conveyed to us confidence and reassurance that the surgery would be successful. There was no question in our minds that you were the best surgeon for my complicated case.

I am writing this 18 months after the surgery – and now leading a more or less normal life.

Dr. Samadi, my wife and I thank you for the miraculous surgery that saved my life.

With gratitude,
Joseph P.

Testimonials
V. S., Spain

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...

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.

PROSTATE CANCER! How could it be? I'm young and have had annual PSA tests to monitor my prostate cancer risk. I only recently began to experience sharp pain in my lower back but I knew I had to seek treatment.

In March of 2006 I had robotic prostate surgery and was released from the hospital in 24 hours and had the catheter removed in 5 days. My PSA values have been below the detectable range for the entire year. At your hands it is the most painless and least invasive operation that a man can ever have.
