Dr. David Samadi is currently working on a project that will be a big improvement over how surgeons do prostate removal surgery. He calls it SMART which is an acronym for Samadi Modified Advanced Robotic Technique. The regular prostate removal surgery can have a number of bad consequences because it damages nerves and can result in impotence and incontinence. SMART will be able to remove prostates without damaging nerves in the area or the patient’s sphincter. He says that once he has proven SMART works he will publish the results.
It was 20 years ago that Dr. David Samadi developed the team that helps him perform surgery. He first assembled this team when he worked at Columbia Presbyterian Hospital. He says that because they have been working together so long they are the highly efficient. He says that due to their efficiency they can perform five prostate surgeries a day which is something that very few surgical groups can accomplish. He says that each member of his team knows exactly what their role is when a surgery is being performed and where they should be positioned at any time and more
