Dr. David Samadi’s robotic department at Lenox Hill Hospital has been transformed. There are more and more patients coming along, and he is performing more and more surgeries. This has to do with the quality of the care that he gives. Patients like him, and they end up recommending him to other patients. It is also because of his unique SMART technique that lets him perform prostate surgeries without the possible side effects that conventional prostate surgeries carry with them. He worked a long time on developing the SMART technique, and it was a most enjoyable experience. What it does is that it uses precision technology to separate the nerves from the prostate during surgery so that there is no damage done to the nerves. This avoids the possibility of impotence or incontinence.
Dr. David Samadi is the Chairman of Urology at Lenox Hill Hospital. Urology is his area of expertise. However, he will educate people about other areas of medicine, including alternative medicines. He is successful, he says, because he surrounds himself with good people. He treats his staff like family, and they enjoy working together. He also sticks to a set schedule every day that is designed to bring out the most productivity.
Dr. David Samadi’s center provides a lot more than just prostate surgery. It offers care for everything a man would need to be healthy. It is a one stop shop for men’s health.
When asked whether he ever felt disillusioned with career, he said that there was a time at the beginning when he got frustrated at how slowly patients were managed at the institution he was working in. However, he said that in the end, he realized that you need to have patience and not try to rush things.
Dr. Samadi mentioned that he is most productive during the morning hours. He tries to get to his office at around six in the morning, after waking up at around five. Dr. Samadi performs surgeries later in the morning into the afternoon. He always checks up on all of his patients at the end of the day. He makes a point of setting aside time for communication with them.
Dr. David Samadi was born in Persia and fled to America after the revolution. He studied at Stony Brook School of Medicine, after getting his biochemistry degree from Stony Brook University.
