SMART Robotic Prostate Removal Surgery Comes to Israel – Dr. David Samadi at Fox News

Dr. David Samadi of the Fox News Medical "A-Team" has performed Israel's first ever "SMART Surgery" robotic prostate removal surgery at Rambam Hospital in Haifa, with three surgeries performed in total over the past three days.

Robotic prostate removal has several advantages over traditional prostate removal surgery including less blood loss, a shorter hospital stay, and a better post-operative quality of life regarding urinary control and sexual function.

Dr. Samadi says that the learning curve for robotic prostate surgery is steep, and that he's excited to have the opportunity to share his knowledge and to learn from the Israeli team in order to better serve patients.

Over the next few days Dr. Samadi will be performing live surgeries in Tel-Aviv and demonstrating his high-tech technique called SMART surgery to other doctors. SMART surgery aims to preserve the nerves around the prostate relating to sexual function. The surgeries are performed in an hour and a half and will be telecast to doctors in Israel.

Dr. Samadi believes that the future of robotic surgery lies in teleconferencing and telementoring to share techniques and experience between doctors around the world. He says that the concept of telesurgery where operations can be performed on patients over long distances could one day be a reality.

Dr. Samadi has been collaborating closely with Dr. Jack Baniel of Rabin Medical Center and Dr. Jacob Ramon of Tel Hashomer Hospital to mentor fellow colleagues in Israel on his SMART Surgery Technique.

Erectile Dysfunction Treatment – Good Day New York | Dr. David Samadi

Dr. David Samadi discusses erectile dysfunction (ED), treatment methods, and the condition's link to cardiovascular disease on Fox 5's Good Day New York.

Erectile dysfunction is no longer seen as a separate condition that is treated individually. Its presence can signal reason to be concerned about heart disease, especially in younger men who are showing symptoms of early-onset erectile dysfunction. One main cause of ED is restriction of blood flow to the penis, which can be caused by atherosclerosis, or buildup of plaque in the arteries. This is a severe vascular disease that, if left untreated, can cause a heart attack or stroke.

Dr. Samadi suggests that if ED is present that patients talk to their doctors about their heart health. In many cases making positive changes to diet, exercise, and lifestyle can improve a man's erectile dysfunction.

Once those causes are ruled out, treatments can be provided to help with ED such as Viagra, Levitra, and Cialis. Viagra and Levitra are short acting medications that stay in the body for about 4 hours, while Cialis is a long acting medication. A new daily version of Cialis is also available.

Dr. Samadi warns that the foods you eat can affect the efficacy of these medications, especially Viagra and Levitra. Fatty foods will reduce absorption of the medication into the body. For best results these medications should not be taken with food. Because Cialis stays in the body for a much longer period of time this is not as much of a concern.
