A revolutionary new way to spare nerves while conducting prostate surgery was developed by Dr. David Samadi. It is a modification made to robotic surgery known as the SMART surgery technique (Samadi Modified Advanced Robotic Technique). Samadi developed this in 2007 and is using it to help prostate cancer patients improve their sex lives, reduce incontinence, and improve their overall quality of life. The robotic machinery allows for heightened vision and permits angles of dissection that would otherwise have not been possible using only laparoscopic tools. The process offers little scarring with a quick healing surgical site and a rapid recovery rate. The efficient techniques utilized in Samadi’s operating rooms have been replicated worldwide to help surgeons increase their potential for efficiency. He surrounds himself with a highly effective, well-trained team who are all versed in his strategies.
