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. Wait and watch was also not an option because of the death of my wife’s father during this process. After careful review I decided on Robotic Prostrate Surgery. It was a great choice because of the doctor involved. His name is David Samadi, M.D. He is Chief of the Division of Robotics and Minimally Invasive Surgery at the Mount Sinai School of Medicine in New York City.
Here are a few details: Virtually no blood loss during surgery, one day hospital stay (I was able to drive back to Virginia the day after surgery), virtually no pain during or after surgery, bladder control in a little over two months, able to resume sexual activities (took a little longer).
Why choose Dr. David Samidi: experience, experience, experience
over 500 successful surgeries / year and over 3000 to date
virtually no blood loss during surgery – no transfusions necessary
removal of prostrate removes risk of cancer spreading to other organs
