The Curiosity and the Discipline of Dr. David Samadi

Dr. David Samadi is a high-level surgeon who is always on the move, searching for new ways to treat patients and new technologies that will make treatment faster, easier, and more precise. Dr. Samadi currently acts as the Chairman of Urology as well as the Chief of Robotic Surgery at Lenox Hill Hospital, which is located in New York, NY. Dr. Samadi is known for his wide-ranging curiosity as well as for his drive to find new treatment options for the care of patients. All of this has made him a well known medical expert who frequently writes and speaks on the subject of robotic surgery techniques. Dr. Samadi frequently appears on television as a well-regarded medical expert, and online on various healthcare websites.

Developing New Hi-Tech Approaches to Treatment

Right now Dr. Samadi is developing a new hi-tech approach to prostate cancer treatment. His work with cancer patients has been driven him to solve a problem that has often come with surgical treatment for this cancer, which is nerve damage that can affect a patient’s sphincter muscle and bladder after surgery. These problems often come after surgery when the nerves around the prostate are “peeled away” before the gland is removed. Samadi’s breakthrough robotic technique, which is called the Samadi Modified Advanced Robotic Technique (SMART), would allow for much greater precision during surgery, and thus, a minimal chance of nerve damage, as well as muscle damage.

A Creative Approach to Problem Solving

Dr. Samadi’s breakthrough’s in development new treatment techniques can be attributed to his discipline as well as to his active curiosity. There’s no doubt that Dr. Samadi loves to play with free-ranging ideas as he works on coming up with new and better treatment processes. He recently revised the cleaning schedule in his operating area based on a system used by JetBlue Airlines. Being open to an idea used on a jet plane lead him to a breakthrough, which all goes to show why having an open mind is so important for anyone who is really committed to bringing new concepts, whether in healthcare or in high-tech, into fruition.
