Dr. David Samadi is undoubtedly one of the most gifted minds of the twenty first century. Samadi, a prostate surgeon, practicing out of New York’s Lenox Hill facility created the SMART technique. SMART is an acronym that stands for the Samadi Modified Advanced Robotic Technique. This minimally invasive technique has revolutionized prostate surgery.
Robotic-assisted laparoscopic prostatectomy’s, otherwise known as RALP procedures, have been around prior to Dr. Samadi’s method. After training in urology, oncology, and laparoscopy, Samadi made some modifications to the prostatectomy procedure. The modifications made by the doctor, are distinct to his SMART method, which focuses on removing cancerous prostates.
How The Dr. David Samadi SMART Procedure Differs From Current Treatment Options
Every SMART surgery that has been carried out on a patient, has been personally performed by Samadi. He is involved in the surgery from beginning to end. According to Dr. David Samadi, a procedure is considered successful if it adheres to three success measures. It must remove all cancerous prostate cells, control urinary incontinence, and allow sexual pleasure for the recipient thereafter.
The cornerstones of the SMART method involve preserving the endo pelvic fascia, surrounding nerve bundles, and the urinary sphincter. The dorsal vein complex also undergoes a unique treatment. With the modifications made by Dr. Samadi, the prostate gland, which is the size of a walnut, can be removed without disrupting any other organs or body systems. Additional nerve bundles are protected by using cold clips and scissors, and not cauterizing the area.
The Advantages Of Being Treated With The SMART Technique
The SMART surgery is a minimally invasive procedure that helps streamline prostate cancer recovery. Patients experience fewer complications and risks in comparison to other methods of treatment. Dr. Samadi performs his modified procedure in as little as ninety minutes. This helps reduce the patients exposure to infection and prolonged loss of blood. Most patients are released from the hospital a day after their surgeries.
As long as all post-surgical instructions are followed, patients can expect impressive outcomes from the procedure. Eighty nine percent of patients treated with the SMART method are cancer free, less than two percent, experience a recurrence within the first year following surgery. Urinary continence returns within twelve to thirteen months accompanying surgery, and 96.6% of patients sexual potency is revived eighteen months thereafter.
