Smart Surgery

Welcome to my new SMART Surgery Technique Blog. SMART, which stands for the Samadi Modified Advanced Robotic Technique, is a signature technique that I created to treat urologic diseases such as kidney cancer, bladder cancer, and prostate cancer. It is a traditional open anatomic surgical technique based on the robotic platform that I use in my practice at the Mount Sinai School of Medicine in New York City, as the Chief of Robotics and Minimally Invasive Surgery.

My advanced SMART Surgery Technique allows me to give my patients a 95% cure rate while achieving continence rates of 97% and potency rates of 81% within one year.

I’m a board certified urologist and oncologist, who specializes in robotic surgery. I have successfully performed over 3,300 robotic-assisted prostatectomies in my practice, more than half with this technique.

Positive surgical outcomes with robotic prostatectomies are a result of my modifications to the robotic platform with this technique, which is done via nerve sparing techniques. Because of this, I can accomplish the “treatment trifecta” of cure, continence and sexual function that aids my patients with their quality of life.

With this blog, I hope to share helpful information not only on the SMART Surgery technique, but also on prostate cancer, surgical prostate cancer treatments, robotic prostatectomy and robotic surgical treatment for bladder and kidney cancers. With comprehensive detail and patient education videos, I hope to take the fear and mystery out of robotic surgery and replace it with confidence in current and prospective patients.

    Dr. David Samadi is a brilliant surgeon. He operated on me in March of 2009. I am now completely cancer free and living a completely normal life. I have no side effects now at 20 months after surgery. I am a 55 year old with a history of prostate cancer in my family. The Doctor and his staff are compassionate, professional and very highly skilled. My decision to have Dr. Samadi perform this surgery on me, versus any other surgeon or treatment option, was the best decision of my life.

    I just celebrated my one year anniversary of being cancer free. Dr. David Samadi is not only a fabulous surgeon but a man of great humility and character. He is the best there is in his field in my opinion. Most doctors, won’t give you the right time of day but Dr. Samadi believes in the saying “to those who are given much, much is expected”. When we first met he said that we would become friends. I am please to say that Dr. Samadi is my friend.
