Dr David  Samadi is talking to a patient

Dr. Samadi has chosen the field of urology as his main specialization, and soon became one of the best urologists in New York. Dedication and responsibility for other people’s lives are key. As Dr. Samadi explains in his recently launched book, The Ultimate MANual, men are usually neglected when it comes to healthcare. The problem is that they center their life around the principle: “If it is not broken, we do not need to fix it”. Due to this attitude towards medicine and healthcare and to other factors, men’s life expectancy is 5 years lower than it is in women. Men around the world are in urgent need of support and guidance.

Why has Dr. David Samadi chosen the urology department?

Urology is that part of healthcare that deals with the male and female urinary tract. The urinary tract includes the kidneys, bladder, ureters, and urethra. Also, it deals with male reproductive organs: penis, prostate gland, testes, and scrotum. Urologic health is crucial in leading a high-quality life.

Unfortunately, prostate cancer is the second leading cause of cancer deaths in America.

The American Cancer Society estimated that 2021 will bring about 248,530 new prostate cancer cases. Also, about 34,130 men will die because of prostate cancer. If we top everything up with the fact that every 1 in 8 men in America will be diagnosed with prostate cancer during his lifetime, it is clear why Dr. David Samadi has chosen to specialize in this critical healthcare field.


As a Urologic Oncology Expert and Robotic Surgeon, Dr. Samadi has helped numerous men regain their health and enjoy their quality of life. Also, having already performed over 7,000 successful robotic prostatectomies, Dr. Samadi has saved thousands of lives.

He stated: “It is my life mission to bring global awareness and attention to a disease that is the second leading cause of death in men: prostate cancer”.

What is Dr. David Samadi’s education as a urologist?

Becoming a urologist requires years of education and specializations. And becoming an expert in this field requires dedication and passion. All these were combined in Dr. Samadi’s evolution as a renowned urologist around the world.

In 1994, Dr. David Samadi received a Master’s degree from the Stony Brook School of Medicine, New York. After that, David B. Samadi continued his education at Montefiore Medical Center and finished his training in 2000.

One year later, Dr. Samadi completed a fellowship in proctology. The year 2002 was a milestone in his career as an expert urologist. That year, he went to France to accomplish a robotic radical prostatectomy fellowship under the guidance of Professor Claude Abbou.

At that time, robotic prostatectomy using the DaVinci robot was still a novelty, Dr. Samadi being a pioneer in his field. By applying and modifying this technique, he succeeded in curing countless men from prostate cancer with almost no side effects.

What skills and experience should a good urologist have?

At a personal level, a good oncologist and urologist should have a high level of empathy and compassion. Also, he should be interested in the biology of cancers, pathology, chemistry, and physics, to understand, for example, how radiation works. A trusted urologist should also be updated with the latest technologies, so as to be able to recommend the best treatment possible. When searching for a good urologist, do not neglect these aspects. Look for his education, experience, and reviews.

But what is Dr. Samadi’s experience as a urologist and robotic surgeon for the treatment of prostate cancer?

Dr. Samadi has over 2 decades of experience in the urology field. He has devoted his entire life to the treatment of urological diseases, including BPH, bladder problems, UTIs, and prostate cancer.

After completing his robotic prostatectomy training in France, Dr. David B. Samadi performed and even perfected this technique with passion and devotion. In 2007, he was named Chief of the Division of Robotics and Minimally Invasive Surgery in the Department of Urology at Mount Sinai. Also, that was the year when Samadi has successfully modified the classical robotic prostatectomy, creating a revolutionary prostate surgery: SMART surgery. This new technique involved sparing the nervous bundle surrounding the prostate, thus ensuring good continence and sexual function after prostate surgery.


Between 2013-2019, Dr. David Samadi MD acted as a Urologic Oncology Expert and Robotic Surgeon at Lenox Hill Hospital. Starting with 2019, he is the Director of Men’s Health at St. Francis Hospital, Roslyn, New York. All the thousands of robotic prostatectomies he has performed until now made him be known as a trusted robotic surgeon when it comes to prostate cancer treatment.

Why should you see a urologist?

Men will thrive only when there will be a change in their attitude towards healthcare. The motto “If it not broken, why fix it” is the most dangerous enemy of any man.

Prevention was always the best cure for any disease. That is why Dr. Samadi has always offered advice on how to lead a healthy life, preventing serious problems that may occur due to bad habits. His book, mentioned above, is a great resource for men of all ages to shift towards a healthier lifestyle. Also, on Dr. Samadi’s website dedicated to prostate cancer, prostatecancer911.com, you will find practical pieces of advice to protect the health of your urinary system.

But you should do more than that. Regular medical check-ups are essential to prevent or early diagnose any disease. Even if everything seems to be alright now, only a specialized urologist can confirm that. Do not let ignorance put your life at risk.
