When one is faced with the words "You Have Cancer," it is devastating, especially for a physician who has dealt with these words most of his professional life. I am that physician. Despite medical knowledge, all went blank. The cancer was prostate, of an aggressive nature, with a Gleason score of 8. Despite PSA's every 3 to 4 months and negative biopsies 2 years earlier, a random biopsy yielded the above results.
I called professors and friends at institutions I had trained at, all well-meaning, and all with different views. After discussion with my personal urologist, the term Robotic Prostatectomy and Dr. David Samadi were introduced. Gathering all the information and with a history of major cardiovascular disease, I decided to contact Dr. Samadi.
From the moment we spoke, I knew I had made the right choice. It is now more than a week post-op and all is well (including path reports). Once again, I thank Dr. Samadi and all at Mount Sinai for the opportunity to be cared for by the best.

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.more..

The surgery was a lifesaver for my wife. Out of hospital in 24 hours, lost the catheter after six days. I was uncomfortable for a few days, but was dry at night after a week! Don't even think about it anymore. 6 weeks post surgery my PSA is 00!! I got my life and my life quality back!more..
