David B. Samadi, MD, highlights the U.S. as inventors and leaders in robotic surgery. He discusses the many international patients who travel to the U.S. looking for the best prostate surgeon. Few international surgeons have the volume of experience and success that, NY robotics expert, Dr. Samadi has. Robotic surgery, he believes, has the power to reverse medical tourism and bring more patients to the U.S. for prostate cancer treatment and cure.
David B. Samadi, MD, explains his custom SMART (Samadi Modified Advanced Robotic Technique) Surgery for prostate cancer. As a NY robotics expert, Dr. Samadi performs a unique form of robotic prostate surgery that targets the cancerous prostate without disrupting the delicate nerves that control erections and urinary control. Urinary continence and sex after prostate surgery are the results for most of Dr. Samadi's patients and their partners.
Robotic prostate surgeon, Dr. David Samadi gives a glimpse into one man's choice to have robotic prostatectomy surgery following his early prostate cancer diagnosis.
Robotic prostate removal surgery is the only procedure that gives complete information about how much prostate cancer is present, what the margins are, and the status of the lymph nodes and seminal vesicles. Seed radiation, beam radiation, HIFU, and cryogenics do not provide these details about prostate cancer.

Robotic Prostate Surgery Concerns
With a new investigation underway into the safety of the Da Vinci Surgical system many people are nervous about going under the robotic knife. Dr Samadi, one of the worlds leading robotic prostate surgeons and has performed over 5,600 successful robotic prostate surgeries using this Da Vinci Surgical System and believes that inexperience on the part of the surgeon is the primary factor in these select cases.
