How Dr. David Samadi Became A Pioneer In New Methods To Treat Prostate Cancer

Dr. David Samadi is a celebrated surgeon who serves at the Lenox Hill Hospital in New York City as their Chief of Robotic Surgery. His specialty is urology. He was born in Iran and his parents raised him in Persia. After the Iranian Revolution he, along with his brother, was made to leave their home and he ended up in Belgium. While they were in Belgium without their parents, they made the best of it with David focused on starting a career in medicine. His specialty as a urologist was set when he observed a prostate cancer procedure as a student and decided that would be his life calling.

It was at the Stony Brook School of Medicine that Dr. David Samadi earned his medical degree. He worked at Montefiore Medical Center to complete his postgraduate training. His specialization in urology was completed at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine. Over the course of his professional career he has now completed a remarkable 7,000 prostate surgeries. He developed a whole new method of performing these surgeries which he calls SMART which is short for Samadi Modified Advanced Robotic Treatment. After surgery and follow-up care, about 90% of his patients are free of cancer.

Along with performing surgeries, Dr. David Samadi has also become a popular figure in the media as an expert on prostate cancer and other medical issues.

He is also a contributor to Fox News Health on the Fox News Channel where he shares current medical discoveries and other issues in the industry.

The way that Dr. David Samadi treats prostate cancer is unique. His method, which makes extensive use of robotics, is an approach that is less invasive than the conventional surgical approaches used by others in his field. It is not only safer and easier to recover from but it is also more effective as so many of his patients live free of cancer after having him perform their surgery.

Dr. David Samadi says that his career exploded in 2000 after he worked in France for a period of time.
