As a health expert for Fox News, Dr. David Samadi gives helpful information to millions of viewers, as an award-winning surgeon and prostate cancer expert he saves lives. Dr. David Samadi has performed thousands of successful surgeries on patients with a diagnosis of prostate cancer and has one of the best success rates in the world for prostatectomies, almost 90%. In fact, Samadi even created his own method called the Samadi Modified Advanced Robotic Technique. The SMART technique saves the nerves in the patient so there is a smaller chance of impotence and incontinence, issues that many men worry about when considering the surgery.
He will almost always recommend the surgery as opposed to radiation as long as the cancer is localized as the success rate is higher and risk of complications much lower. In fact, the survival rate is almost 100% after surgery as opposed to men who choose radiation treatments which leave them with a less than 30% chance of living more than years if cancer spreads outside of the prostate. In fact, former presidential nominee Mitt Romney decided to choose surgery over radiation after diagnosed with prostate cancer. Dr. David Samadi says he shouldn’t face any reoccurrence of cancer in the prostate or surrounding areas.
