In July 2015, Samadi educated doctors at the Mediterranean Hospital of Cyprus about the robotic procedures he customarily used and he performed surgeries utilizing those techniques. Many of Dr. Samadi’s successes can be directly associated with the Samadi Modified Advanced Robotic Treatment that he invented. He has used this specific treatment for more than 7,000 prostate cancer surgeries and he has successfully helped 90% of those patients became cancer free. Designed to replace traditional surgery, the Samadi Modified Advanced Robotic Treatment (SMART) is a minimally invasive version of the da Vinci Surgical System.

Dr. Samadi urges men to get tested well before the age of 60, which was once the standard. Early detection quite often results in a positive outcome. He notes that 90% of those whose disease is detected early get cured.

A member of the American Medical Association and of the American Urologic Association, Dr. Samadi often gives presentations and speeches at national and international medical conferences. David B Samadi is not only one of the best prostate surgeon, he is a doctor dedicated to the successful and compassionate treatment of prostate cancer. It’s his goal to help all ages of men preserve their highest quality of life after prostate surgery.
