SMART Surgery Stamping Out Prostate Cancer

World-Renowned Prostate Cancer Surgeon, Dr. Samadi, Uses a "Treat and Teach" Approach to the International Fight Against Prostate Cancer.

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - May 8, 2012) - As creator of the Samadi Modified Advanced Robotic Technique (SMART), a prostate removal surgery, Dr. David Samadi has helped over 4,000 men around the world overcome prostate cancer. His innovative approach to robotic prostate surgery leverages the advanced technology of the da Vinci Surgical System robot for enhanced dexterity and visibility during surgery.

Blending his years of expertise in open prostate surgery, laparoscopic surgery, and robotic surgery, Dr. Samadi yields superior results with regard to prostate cancer cure rate and quality of life after prostate removal surgery. Through his regular "treat and teach" overseas trips, Dr. Samadi performs his SMART surgery for the benefit of both patients and prostate cancer specialist throughout the world.

"Men, regardless of nationality, have the same priorities when it comes to fighting prostate cancer. They want to the opportunity to enjoy a long life with family and friends. This means providing patients with the best possible care."

In the U.S., Dr. Samadi's practice has a dedicated international department welcoming men from countries throughout Europe, many from France, Spain, Germany, the Netherlands, Russia, Greece, and Italy. "My staff is multilingual and willingly handles all aspects of travel and accommodations for patients and their families. We receive many compliments for the warmth and discretion shown to our patients," said Dr. Samadi. Many men travel to Dr. Samadi's office each week for SMART prostate removal surgery, which requires only a one-night hospital stay.

Testimonials
A. K, New York

I am aware of the fact that it takes a extraordinarily rare surgeon to be the master of Robotic Laparoscopic Radical Prostatectomy.  I watched the video released by the Henri Mondor hospital before my surgery, and once again today. Although you make it seem easy to the patients and their families, your accomplishment is nearly superhuman.

Sinai for a little over 24 hours went just as Dr. Samadi had explained at our first consultation .There were no surprises or unexpected incidents. The staff at Mt. Sinai were great. My post operative recovery is progressing well...

I learned I had prostrate cancer in late May 2010. I am 67 years old, diabetic, and had both TURP surgery and hernia surgery in the past. Being a Jehovah's Witness I was very concerned about the blood issue. Since conventional prostrate surgery is very bloody, it was not an option.
