Dr. David Samadi is the go-to for robotic prostate surgery and one of the best in the world. Named on the prestigious ‘Best Doctor List’ in New York, he is also a member of the National Urologic Association and The National Medical Association. Nationally televised Fox News channel relies on him as a correspondent whenever they need a captain in his field. Recently he was asked to contribute with Huffington Post to news of Mitt Romney’s prostate cancer and surgery and said that his prognosis is good. He is asked to share his knowledge and clinical research through speaking engagements and presentations domestically and internationally.
After immigrating here from Iran as a teen, he was given a full scholarship to Stony Brook University where he obtained his degree, then moved on to Stony Brook School of Medicine and received his Master’s there. He has gone on to continue his education at Montefiore Medical Center, the Albert Einstein College of Medicine, the Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center and Henri Mondor Hospital Creteil in France.
Shortly after, he established a practice at Columbia Presbyterian Hospital, where he quickly moved up as Director of Robotic Laparoscopic Surgery in the Department of Urology. He went on to become Chief of Robotic Surgery at Mount Sinai Medical Center and now currently serves as Chairman of Urology and Chief of Robotic Surgery at Lenox Hill Hospital.
He is one of very few doctors in the urology surgical field that is trained in all three aspects: open, laparoscopic, and robotic. After years of experience, he actually invented and pioneered a new technique called The Samadi Modified Advanced Robotic Technique (SMART). It is minimally invasive and has the best success rate in the field. He does every surgery himself and customizes it to each patient, using robotic technology for removing cancerous prostates.
Dr. Samadi has quite a large following, thanks in part to his consulting and corresponding with Fox News and his very popular SamadiTV, a website chock full of videos and information for patients to refer to. New videos are added at least monthly and live broadcasts are frequent. He also has a strong presence on social media including every major platform available.
He has won numerous awards including Vitals Patients’ Choice Award, Castle Connolly Top Doctors, The Top 1,251 Physicians for New York Magazine, New York Super Doctors, America’s Top Doctors for Cancer, Best Doctors New York Magazine, and
Most Compassionate Doctor to name a few.
Although he sits on a level unparalleled to other medical professionals in his expertise, he is still humble and down to earth. As illustrated in an interview recently with IdeaMensch, where he said, ” I try to make everyone around me feel better about themselves. I treat my team like my I treat own family.”
