David B. Samadi, M.D. Receives American Cancer Society 2012 Community Partner Award

NEW YORK, Sept 28, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- At last night's Annual Prostate Cancer Awareness and Education Dinner, the American Cancer Society awarded Dr. David B. Samadi, world-leader in prostate cancer treatment and robotic prostate surgery, with the 2012 Community Partner Award. Through robotic surgery excellence, Dr. Samadi has successfully cured more than 4,000 men of prostate cancer.

As Vice Chairman, Department of Urology and Chief of Robotics and Minimally Invasive Surgery at The Mount Sinai Medical Center, Dr. Samadi is world-renowned for the success of his Samadi Modified Advanced Robotic Technique (SMART) robotic prostatectomy surgery. His SMART innovations for robotic prostate removal surgery preserve both sexual function after prostate cancer and urinary control after prostate surgery.

The foundation of Dr. Samadi's worldwide efforts, however, is his dedication to local men and families facing prostate cancer. This award comes in honor of Prostate Cancer Awareness Month and Dr. Samadi's support of the American Cancer Society's Brother to Brother efforts in New York City.

"I am greatly honored to receive this award and sincerely value my participation with the American Cancer Society, especially in New York," expressed Dr. Samadi.

Brother to Brother, a Harlem-based initiative, aims to promote prostate cancer awareness and foster prostate cancer support programs among African American men. Dr. Samadi's collaboration with The American Cancer Society is an important component of these community-based screening and treatment programs.

"African American men are among those at highest risk for developing prostate cancer," Dr. Samadi explains, "Erasing the stigma of prostate cancer and providing sound education about the importance of routine PSA screening and prostate cancer treatment options is vital to the health of every man in our community."

The American Cancer Society, in partnership with Brother to Brother, recognized Dr. Samadi's like-minded dedication to local prostate cancer awareness. Bringing together leading oncologists and urologists, along with social workers and other supporting volunteers, the two organizations lend full circle support to men diagnosed with prostate cancer.

Dr. Samadi's informative prostate cancer website,, is translated into seven languages to extend the reach of life-saving prostate cancer knowledge, news, and SMART surgery treatment.
