Prostate Cancer Robotic Surgery – Academic Hospitals Best Choice

Dr. David Samadi, leading robotic prostatectomy surgeon, joins Dr. Marc Siegel to discuss new research supporting the benefits of undergoing robotic prostate cancer surgery at teaching hospitals. Data reviewed indicates fewer complications, less blood loss and better outcomes than non-academic hospitals. Both Dr. Samadi and Dr. Siegel stress that these benefits are the direct result of the fact that academic institutions attract more experienced, higher skilled surgeons and have access to the latest robotic technology. As such, they treat far more patients resulting in higher expertise. Dr. Samadi has performed over 3,600 success robotic prostatectomy procedures at Mt. Sinai Medical Center.
