The field of medicine has without a doubt greatly benefited from the many advancements in technology that have been witnessed in the last two or three decades. Diagnosis, surgery and treatment have not only become easier for the doctors, but also for patients. The treatment of prostate cancer is one such field that has seen immense growth through technology.
The removal of cancerous prostates using the Robotic Prostatectomy method is one the most advanced as it involves the use of fibre optics from start to finish. At the forefront of Robotic Prostatectomy is Dr. David Samadi, a renowned surgeon and urologist. Dr David Samadi is widely known for having developed his signature technique known as the Samadi Modified Advanced Robotic Technique (SMART) which brings together the principles of oncology and open radical prostatectomy to build an innovative robotic surgery technique.
Using the SMART technique, Dr. David Samadi is able to target specific cancerous prostates and remove them while leaving behind minimal risk of complications from damage in the tissues neighboring the affected area. This also ensures there is minimum scarring and side effects that would arise from other tumor removal methods like radiation therapy or chemotherapy.
The SMART technique goes to ahead to guarantee minimal blood loss and pain during and after the procedure. The patient is able to leave the hospital a day after the surgery for further recuperation at home. The success rate for this technique is high, as studies have shown that over 88% of the patients who have undergone this method of treatment fully recover within months. Most patients have also reported full return to their normal routine, including sexual potency and urinary control.
Dr David Samadi is a certified urologist and oncologist who specializes in minimally invasive methods of cancer treatment, most notably prostate cancer. He is known to have carried out over 7000 surgeries. He also treats other urologic cancers and diseases. He holds a degree in biochemistry from Stony Brook University and an MD from the State University of New York, Stony Brook School of Medicine.
