PSA Testing and Robotic Surgery Take on Prostate Cancer
Date:1/13/2012

NEW YORK, Jan. 13, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- The New Year brings hope for the fight against prostate cancer.

The government chose to focus on the results from the Prostate, Lung, Colorectal, and Ovarian Cancer trial, which failed to demonstrate any benefit. The study, however, was flawed in its design, with a majority of the control group receiving PSA screening.

Currently, an estimated 85 percent of prostatectomy surgeries performed in the U.S. are done so with the surgeon-guided assistance of robotic technology. "Undoubtedly, robotic surgery is part of our success in reducing prostate cancer deaths," says Dr. Samadi. As a robotic prostatectomy expert, he continues to share his knowledge both domestically and abroad to improve surgical success rates by strengthening surgeon expertise. "It's the surgeon's a
