Why Wait With Prostate Cancer When You Can Enjoy Life Cancer-Free?

Prostate cancer is often a slow-growing disease, though current testing cannot accurately quantify individual prognosis. Prostate cancer can turn metastatic, spreading into the lymph nodes, blood, and other organs.

Much is made of the unpleasant side effects of prostate cancer treatment, but as Dr. Samadi reminds, cancer itself is unpleasant. "Unfortunately, cancer impacts the lives of many people, particularly when left untreated. The degree to which varies from one patient to the next, but it is my firm belief that robotic prostatectomy offers the best case scenario for most men." Through his SMART robotic innovations, Dr. Samadi has removed more than 4,000 cancerous prostates.

Urinary continence is restored in 96% of Dr. Samadi's patients just a few months after surgery and erectile function in 85% within 12-24 months. "For most men, SMART surgery makes prostate cancer a very surmountable hurdle. They are cured with minimal, short-term side effects and they go on with their lives in peace."

David Samadi, MD serves as  Vice Chairman, Department of Urology and Chief of Robotics and Minimally Invasive Surgery at The Mount Sinai Medical Center in New York City.
