Prostate Cancer Medical Websites: Friend Or Foe?
Date:11/16/2012

NEW YORK, Nov. 16, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Prostate cancer, like many medical conditions, varies in presentation, treatment options, and outcomes. Undeniably, patients rely on the Internet for early education about their prostate cancer diagnosis or to fill information gaps from doctors. We use the Internet to research nearly every facet of our lives, and our physical wellbeing is no exception. But can we trust what we read? Better yet, can we understand it?

For world-renowned robotic prostate cancer surgeon, David Samadi, MD, the disease he treats – prostate cancer – and his technique are not simple. His global "treat and teach" philosophy centers on the most advanced prostate cancer treatment available, supported by thorough patient education. As such, he has two websites,  www.roboticoncology.com and www.smart-surgery.com, that provide an overview of the disease, the full range of treatment options, and his own SMART (Samadi Modified Advanced Robotic Technique) surgery.

"Thorough and accurate patient education is vital," Dr. Samadi says. "I'm a robotic surgeon, but it's important for my patients to understand all options. I work to maintain websites that are clear and up-to-date so when patients leave my office – or before they even arrive – they have solid resources they can understand and depend on."

We're often reminded to choose wisely when it comes to digging for medical information onlin
