Nationally recognized expert in urology diseases, Dr. David Samadi has helped change the treatment of diseases of the prostate. Samadi uses his SMART surgery technique for the removal of the prostate. This technique combines the benefits of laparoscopic surgery with an assisted robotic arm, and his skilled hands. A four-arm robotic assistant is manually controlled by the surgeon. The movement possibilities of the instruments are modeled by Dr. Samadi’s human hands. A high-performance 3D optics allows the spatial representation of the surgical field in an up to 10-fold magnification. In this surgery, the patient benefits from diminished tissue trauma, earlier urinary continence, a higher recovery rate and an usually fast convalescence. The mobility of the patient is promptly restored after surgery and his return to his daily regimen is correspondingly easier.
