הרופא שבישר לי את תוצאות הביופסיה היה ברור. אובחנתי בסרטן הערמונית...

The Wife, USA

The next day we went to see Dr. Samadi. In walked a tall surgeon, with a great grip when he shook hands.  He proceeded to show us what the male body looked like around the prostate, and all of the work that had to be done to make sure that Ken would come out with a fully functional body, minus his prostate.

Ann, G

My husband and I have been extolling the virtues of Dr. David Samadi and Mt. Sinai Hospital since my husband’s robotic prostatectomy March 11, 2009, and we thought you would like to know of our positive experience...

Yossi, Israel

I chose to undergo the operation with a specialist in the U.S., who has an extensive experience in robotic surgeries: Dr. David Smadi. The surgery was relatively simple: i didn't suffer any pain, lost a small amount of blood and had the catheter only for seven days. I got back to full functioning very soon afterwards.
