Learning about Prostate Cancer with Dr. David Samadi

Prostate cancer is common with men who are in their retirement age, 60 years and older. As such, the average age for most men with this disease currently stands at 66. There are a number of politicians that have been diagnosed with this condition before. For instance, the Colin Powell, who is also the former secretary of state, underwent treatment at Walter Reed Army Medical Center. Another key example is Mitt Romney who was running as a Republican presidential nominee. He also was operated on and has fully recovered. He is currently hoping to replace Orrin Hatch, the senator representing Utah.

Most studies recommend that patients consider surgery as their first option as opposed to radiation. This is because patients who undergo surgery tend to recover much faster than those who had radiation treatment. As such, the probability of death for those who underwent radiation is twice that of surgery patients. Besides, if a patient chooses radiation treatment but the cancer ends up spreading to other parts, it becomes extremely difficult to treat it. There are many cases where radiation treatment has been highly related to secondary cancer formations such as rectal cancer and bladder cancer.

Dr. David Samadi specializes in robotic surgery for prostate cancer. During the last decade alone, he has been able to operate on close to 7,000 patients and has almost a 90 percent success rate. His idea of excellent treatment is ensuring the patient has a better quality of life and remains sexually active even after surgery. Unlike other specialists who focus on prostate cancer only, Dr. Samadi has been able to treat his patients wholly, thanks to his open surgery training at Stony Brook School of Medicine.

David works with a team of expert nurses and doctors that help in caring for the patients. He performs up to 500 DaVinci prostatectomy surgeries every year. He is also board certified, a trained urologic oncologist and an expert in laparoscopic surgery. Dr. David Samadi serves as the current chief of robotic surgery and chairperson of the urology department at Lenox Hill Hospital. He is considered one of the best surgeons on early detection, treatment as well as diagnosis of prostate cancer in the field today.

David is married to Sahar Danielpour, an Iranian national, and together, they have two children. The family is currently located in the United States of America. Dr. Samadi pursued his first degree in biochemistry at Stony Brook University before studying medicine.
