Give the Man in Your Life the Gift of Health
Date:5/29/2008

NEW YORK, May 29 /PRNewswire/ -- Three of the most terrifying words in the English language are "You have cancer." For a man, add the word "prostate" and the fear factor rises even higher, since prostate cancer is the second leading cause of cancer-related death in men, but with early detection is very curable.

Give a gift of health to the man in your life by scheduling a simple blood test to screen for prostate cancer. If there is a need for treatment, help the man you love get educated about his options for becoming cancer free. Men who opt for robotic laparoscopic prostatectomies find that not only are they cancer free, but they are able to resume normal lifestyles with total control over their sexual functions and bladder. Cancer free outcomes also result from traditional open prostate surgery, but men are rendered impotent and incontinent - both of which may never be reversed. These side affects are devastating to patients dealing with prostate cancer, and have unfortunately led to failed marriages and relationships, and depression.

One of the nation's most experienced surgeons in the minimally-invasive robotic prostate surgery is Dr. David Samadi, Chief, Division of Robotics and Minimally Invasive Surgery, Mount Sinai Medical Center in New York City. A urologic surgeon trained in both oncology and laparoscopy, Dr. Samadi has performed over 1,300 prostate removals using robotic laparoscopy, with a success rate that could not be more positive. A board-certified urologist and a leader in men's health, Dr. Samadi specializes in the diagnosis and treatment of prostate, bladder, and kidney cancer, and other urologic diseases, providing targeted therapies for men that not only treat the disease, but also reduce incontinence, improve sexual function and restore quality of life.

According to Dr. Samadi, "Unlike open surgery requiring an 8" to 10" incision, the laparoscopic prostate surgery involves just five small "keyhole" incisions in the patient's abdomen. The result is greater precision in both cutting and suturing, less trauma to surrounding tissue, and minimal blood loss."

Instead of two to three days of hospitalization and two months of recuperation typical with open prostate surgery, laparoscopic surgery patients often go home the next day and are back to normal activities within two weeks.
