Lenox Hill Hospital's 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.
Dr. David Samadi operates on one patient at a time from start to finish. He uses the same surgical team on each procedure and is highly skilled in open prostatectomy surgery, laparoscopic prostate removal surgery, and robotic prostatectomy surgery.
Dr.David Samadi explains why experience really matters; why is it important for your surgeon to have sufficient laparoscopic & open surgery experience.
Dr. David Samadi is the Chairman of Urology & Robotics Surgery at Lenox Hill Hospital. He's also a Fox News Medical-A-Team Contributor & Professor of Urology at Hofstra Northshore LIJ School of Medicine.
