In an effort to share his expertise in performing robotic prostatectomy, Dr. David Samadi performed live robotic surgeries on four patients for treating prostate cancer during his visit to Netherlands.
Dr. Samadi is frequently travelling overseas in an effort to share his expertise and work with specialists across the world to wipe out prostate cancer from the lives of people. He has performed more than 3,600 successful robot aided prostatectomies using the SMART (Samadi Modified Advanced Robotic Technique) Surgery, which has shown increases success rates and reduced side effects when compared to traditional surgical methods.
Dr. JelleBarentz, who is a urogenital MRI specialist at The Dutch Radboud University Nijmegen Medical Center in the Netherlands, worked together with Dr. Samadi while he performed the surgeries. He stated that he combined MRI techniques with SMART surgery while working on the patients. Dr. Samadi had operated on patients whose cases were a medical challenge at various stages of cancer, ranging from 47 to 70 years of age. The surgery performed on all the four cases was successful in removing the cancerous tumours. The da Vinci Robotic Prostatectomy is a minimally invasive procedure that requires short stays at the hospital. Loss of blood is very less with this procedure and the patients recover much faster than operated through traditional methods.
