NEW YORK, Dec. 14 , 2005 -- Men opting for a robotic prostatectomy are more likely to be cancer free as well as being able to return to normal lifestyles, according to David B. Samadi, M.D., of New York. In particular, most men are able to maintain sexual capabilities and bladder control after a robotic prostatectomy. This is different from an open prostatectomy, where men commonly lose continence and ability to have fulfilling sex.

Dr. Samadi is one of the few surgeons skilled in this new minimally invasive technique. Dr. Samadi is an internationally renowned Urologist and Oncologist. He is Chief, Division of Robotics and Minimal Invasive Surgery Mount Sinai School of Medicine, New York.

The success rate of the robotic prostatectomy “could not be more positive,” sites Dr. Samadi, based on his four years of experiences and over 300 prostate removals using the da Vinci robotic system.

Unlike open surgery, robotic prostatectomy surgery involves five small "keyhole" incisions in the patient's abdomen, through which extremely fine instruments are inserted, along with a miniscule camera that displays magnified two-dimensional images from inside the body on a screen. The da Vinci Robotic System-- transforms those images into three dimensions, and enables the surgeon's hand movements to be scaled, filtered, and translated into incredibly precise movements. The result is greater precision in both cutting and suturing, less trauma to surrounding tissue, and minimal blood loss."

Most of Dr. Samadi’s robotic prostatectomy patients leave the hospital on the same day, or 1-day after the procedure. Most important, sites Dr. Samadi, his patients have minimal post operative complications. Dr. Samadi has a rapidly growing list of grateful patients and testimonials, indeed, clearly demonstrating his mastery of the robotic prostatectomy procedure. For information, contact Dr. Samadi.

On Jan. 26, 2011 when I had my prostate removed you told me I would soon be able to resume my normal activities. This past Sunday my wife and I completed a half marathon together. What a wonderfull experience we shared, thanks to you I am doing what I was able to do prior to my diagnosis and I am working to continue to improve.
