Dr. David Samadi : The Art of Robotics in Surgery and Medicine

David B. Samadi, a doctor who practices at Lenox Hill Hospital located in New York City ,is the Chairman of Urology and Chief of Robotic Surgery and a member of the American Urological Association as well as the American Medical Association. His duties include diagnosis of cancer relating to the prostate, kidney, and bladder as well as treatment for these diseases and other urologic disorders.

Dr. David B. Samadi is skilled in the art of robotic surgery. He has used laparoscopic robotic radical prostatectomy and laparoscopic radical prostatectomy on thousands of patients. This type of robotic surgery is minimally invasive compared to some traditional treatments.

Educated at Stony Brook University, Samadi graduated with a biochemistry degree then continued onto Stony Brook School of Medicine. Furthering his education, he took postgraduate training from Montefiore Medical Center and Albert Einstein College of Medicine and finished a fellowship in proctology at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center.

Dr. David B. Samadi began his career in robotics at Henri Mondor Hospital Creteil, France. He was in a robotic radical prostatectomy fellowship. Not limiting himself to Europe and the United States, Samadi has performed surgery in 45 countries around the globe.

Early detection, coupled with diagnosis and treatment of prostate cancer is something Dr. Samadi strongly believes in and works on educating patients and the public. He has been a host on Fox, sharing his knowledge on the subject as a medical advisor on Sunday Housecall.

Not satisfied with television alone, Dr. Samadi created SamadiMD.com to help share his medical insight and updates people with new technologies, alternative treatments, and other health concerns men may face, such as fertility and regulating testosterone. He also launched a radio show in 2015.

Today, he is working on a modern approach to remove the prostate, which has been named the Samadi Modified Advanced Robotic Technique, or SMART, surgery. Other extremely successful creations are the most efficient OR team in America. He made it possible for a one robot to perform five prostate surgeries in a day. He manages his operating room staff like a baseball team, he says, “Everyone knows their position.”

While Dr. David B. Samadi has used his talents in robotics and enhance the quality of lives for many human beings, he looks to the future, which holds telesurgery, remote surgeries to advance the art of robotics in medicine.
