Dr. David Samadi is the famous medical professional and the chairman of Urology and Chief of Robotic Surgery at Lenox Hill Hospital located in New York. He is a specialized urologist and has years of experience in diagnosing urological diseases, prostate cancer, bladder cancer, kidney cancer and others. Over the years, he has successfully carried out thousands of non-invasive and minimal-invasive prostate cancer treatments, including the advanced laparoscopic robotic radical prostatectomy.
Dr. David Samadi completed his graduation from Stony Brook University and then obtained his M.D from the Stony Brook School of Medicine. He got his postgraduate training at the famous Montefiore Medical Center and also from Albert Einstein College of Medicine. He then went on to get a fellowship in proctology from Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center and then started his robotic radical prostatectomy fellowship at Henri Mondor Hospital Creteil, France. He has performed surgeries in many different countries and is the most sought after urologist in the world.
In a recent interview with Ideamensch, Dr. David Samadi shared information about his current project that he working on. He is developing a new prostate removal technique called the Samadi Modified Advanced Robotic Technique that is going to help separate the prostate from the surrounding nerves so that there is no damage to these nerves that often results in serious side effects. He also works towards building an efficient operating room team that will help make surgeries easier than ever before. He has worked hard to make his hospital one of the only places in the world where a robot can perform up to five surgeries in a single day with more emphasis on efficiency rather than speed.
Dr. David Samadi considers his team at the operation theatre to be a big part of his life. He treats each member of his team as his family and shares everything with them. Inspired by an interview that he saw of the former CEO of JetBlue, he has trained his team to become efficient and to do their jobs perfectly so that he can start his next surgery immediately after completing the previous one. He considers himself to the pilot of the plane and his team to be the crew members. His team is the reason why he has been so successful in these surgeries since they take care of everything in the operating room without him having to worry about anything. Dr. David Samadi also urges people to invest in telesurgery and telemedicine technology as it will allow surgeons to perform many different kind of surgeries remotely and efficiently.
