Dr. David B. Samadi helps men of all ages achieve complete recovery from prostate cancer while preserving the highest possibly quality of life after surgery. Widely regarded for excellence in robotic surgery innovation, clinical care, and research, Dr. Samadi has performed more than 7,000+ successful robotic prostate surgeries, using his own Samadi Modified Advanced Robotic Technique (SMART) surgery.
SMART Robotic Prostate Surgery
SMART Surgery is an innovative, robotic-assisted laparoscopic prostatectomy (RALP) technique, developed by Dr. Samadi, that reduces surgical time to less than two hours and hospital recovery stay to less than 24 hours. Dr. Samadi performs robotic prostate cancer surgery using the da Vinci robotic system. This minimally invasive procedure employs the latest advancements in robotics and computer technology to remove the cancerous prostate.
The Surgeon Console houses the master controls used by Dr. Samadi to manipulate the Patient-side Cart and the EndoWrist instruments. Dr. Samadi’s expert hands, translated into the EndoWrists, control every movement of the robot. He remains the surgeon for the entire procedure and is in control of the robot at all times.
During the procedure Dr. Samadi has a 3D view of the surgical field through the Insite Vision System. This is a vast improvement over traditional surgery and the 2D view of laparoscopic surgery. High definition video cameras give a 10X to 15X magnification for greater depth perception and a clearer visual field. Enhanced visualization of the prostate capsule is particularly important in aiding Dr. Samadi while he spares the neurovascular bundles responsible for erectile function and reconnects the urethra to the bladder.
