Currently Dr. Samadi is working on developing a procedure he has dubbed SMART surgery, or the Samadi Modified Advanced Robotic Technique. Typically, surgeons who perform prostate surgery peel off nerves connected to the prostrate before removal of the prostrate itself. This procedure is well known in the causing of incontinence and impotence. Dr. Samadi and his new technique focus on removing said nerves with microscopic precision before removing the prostrate, a method which has greatly reduced the common side effects of prostrate cancer.
30,000 men die per year due to prostrate cancer, fittingly deemed the “silent killer”, mainly because of the fact that there are basical no symptoms. You must be tested in order to become aware that you have the disease. It is recommended to start regular screenings by age 40. 6 out of 10 cases occur in men over 65.
