An Interview With Prostate Cancer Survivor Dr. Theodore Lazzaro: Part 2

Once Dr. Lazzaro decided on a prostatectomy, he knew he wanted robotic. His dental school roommate had the surgery in Detroit’s Henry Ford Hospital, and “his post-operative condition was excellent,” said Lazzaro. Lazzaro’s own cousins had a variety of procedures to treat their prostate cancer, so they proved to be excellent reference points for the different options available. “And out of all of them, the cousin that had robotic surgery fared the best,” he said. “Dr. Samadi was the clear cut choice for me, not only because of proximity but because of his experience, residencies and fellowships,” said Lazzaro. He appreciated the fact that Samadi could perform open/traditional, laparoscopic and robotic surgery, and that Samadi handles all of his operations himself from beginning to end.
