Dr. David Samadi is a famous doctor who specializes in urology and prostate surgery. He is currently a surgeon who operates on patients suffering from prostate cancer at Lenox Hill Hospital. Dr. Samadi is a pioneer in the use of robotic surgery to treat prostate related issues. He is currently working on a new robotic surgery technique called the Samadi Modified Advanced Robotic Technique or SMART surgery. The SMART surgery procedure will be more effective than existing prostate surgery procedures that peel of nerves before removing prostates. Dr. David Samadi aims to remove only the prostate with his Samadi Modified Advanced Robotic Technique. His surgical procedure is thus much safer and has much less complications than existing nerve sparing prostate surgery. The nerve sparing prostate surgery can damage nerves in the prostate area.
