Dr. David Samadi is a renowned medical expert who serves as the Chairman of Urology as well as the Chief of Robotic Surgery at Lenox Hill Hospital, which is located in New York, NY. Dr. Samadi specializes in diagnosing and treating many urological diseases, including cancer of the kidney and bladder and prostate cancer.
Dr. Samadi is known for his caring philosophy of treating every patient as if they were a family member. Along with his work as a doctor of medicine, Dr. Samadi is also a communicator. He has a website called SamadiMD.com, which relates health tips, and he is also seen on the Fox television network as a medical expert.
High Tech Treatment Approaches
Dr. Samadi is currently working on a new, hi-tech approach to the removal of the prostate for male patients with prostate cancer. One of the major problems in current techniques for prostate removal is the need for peeling off the nerves surrounding the gland. This can cause serious issues like impotence and incontinence, and these side effects cause many men to delay surgery. Dr. Samadi’s new technique is called SMART surgery, which stands for Samadi Modified Advanced Robotic Technique. This technique will allow a surgeon to separate the prostate gland from the nerves with a much higher degree of precision, and should minimize damage to the patient’s sphincter muscle and surrounding nerves.
A Creative Development Process
In recent interviews Dr. Samadi has discussed his approach to developing new ideas for treatment using robotics. Samadi has stated that he likes to work through his ideas by drawing them out, and he acts on ideas that come to him randomly, sometimes at 3AM. Samadi also draws ideas from all sources. He recently found a great inspiration for streamlining his surgical approach by acting on an idea used by the JetBlue Airline. By using the same approach to cleaning up the work area used by the airline, Samadi was able to save more time during the day and make himself more available to the patients who need his care.
Obviously, being a top surgeon and a developer of new surgical techniques isn’t an easy job, but Dr. Samadi’s obvious joy in the process is what keeps him constantly inspired.
