Dr. David Samadi Revolutionizes Prostate Surgery The “SMART” Way

The story has been told thousands of times, poor immigrant arrives in USA, works hard, studies hard and finds success and as cliche as it may sound in the beginning, these stories never get old. This similar story is no exception and certainly not if you are one of the thousands of lives that have been saved because of this successful individuals accomplishments.

Dr. David Samadi is a now famous urologist who’s practice specializes in diagnosing and treating urological disease, prostate, kidney and bladder cancer with pioneering and unique least invasive techniques that have been revolutionary against the battle of these terrible diseases. Revolution is nothing new to Dr. David Samadi as he was born in Iran and raised in a Persian Jewish community that he was forced to flee with his brother at the age of 15 following the Iranian Revolution.

The two young teenagers fled to Belgium and were separated from their family leaving them on their own. Eventually they found their way to America where David began his educational pursuit to become a doctor. His journey through medical education saw him through successful completion at Stony Brook University, Stony Brook School of Medicine, Montefiore Medical Center and Albert Einstein College.

During his tenure of medical practice in the fields of Urology and Proctology, Dr. David Samadi has many major accomplishments, awards and recognitions but one that stands out in particular is his work and development of what is known as “SMART” surgery for urinary continence and sex after prostate cancer.

The SMART technique for prostate cancer has become very popular around the world. The technique reverses the way a normal prostate operation is performed. Instead of removing the nerves and mobilizing them away from the prostate he removes the prostate away from the nerves so that they nerves are not touched in the procedure, so the continence and sexual function are not effected.

Dr. David Samadi explains that it is not just what you remove when performing prostate surgery, the cancer, but also just as important is what you leave behind, in this case the nerves that control continence and sexual functions. This work has brought awareness to the fact that not just men are affected by prostate cancer but wives and girlfriends are as well because of the sexual dysfunction that was a result of old prostate removal techniques prior to his revolutionary SMART techniques that are changing the way surgeons approach prostate cancer.
