Dr. David Samadi is a surgeon and physician who is working to treat prostate cancer in a revolutionary way. His current work is to develop cutting edge procedure he is naming the “Samadi Modified Advanced Robotic Technique,” otherwise known as SMART, which is does not peel off the nerves like most surgeons do before removing the prostate. This will encourage more men to not put-off getting prostate surgery due to the fears and side effects associated with the stripping of the nerves. Instead, he will use microscopic precise tools that allow him to separate the prostate without causing damage to the nerves that surround it.

Dr. David Samadi credits his ability to come up with new ideas and act on them due to the fact that he has a photographic memory. He can also draw up his ideas so he can remember them later, and he often does this. One of his memories of acting on an idea came when he was inspired by Jet Blue who ran their company tight and efficiently. This made him want to do the same, and he did by beginning to run his operating room more like a plane with him being the pilot and his staff being the copilot and rest of the crew. The fact that he also treats his staff with respect and like they are family is a part of what makes him such a unique gift to the world.
Dr. David Samadi is Chief of Robotic Surgery at Lenox Hill Hospital as well as the Chairman of Urology. He is one of a small number of oncology-trained surgeons who practice in the United States, and it is his life’s mission to raise worldwide knowledge and awareness about prostate cancer, which is the second leading cause of men dying. Nine out of ten of the surgeries he performs end up with with his patient, eventually, becoming cancer free.
While all of the above achievements are wonderful, this is not what makes Dr. David Samadi so great. What makes him really stand out is his bedside manner and his ability to empathize with people. Many of his patients say that they can tell that he really cares, and that he makes them feel less alone in the world. This makes DR. Samadi happy, because his main goal in life is to focus on the happiness and well-being of others.
