Robotic Surgery: Clever Marketing or Life-Saving Technology
Date:8/13/2011

y, the frequency of prostatectomy procedures is often debated by "watchful waiting" supporters. Some specialists recommend that patients diagnosed with early prostate cancer postpone surgery or other treatment modalities, opting instead to keep an eye on its development before aggressively treating the cancer. Dr. Samadi believes that for most patients the best course of action is to remove the prostate gland and a new study in The New England Journal of Medicine supports Dr. Samadi's beliefs. Following 700 prostate cancer patients over a 15-year period – half opting for watchful waiting, half for prostate removal – the NEJM found that surgical removal of the prostate provides a 38 percent decrease in the risk of death from prostate cancer. "The survival benefits are great," asserts Dr. Samadi. However, he does acknowledge that for a small percentage of patients, the cancer may return after radical prostatectomy procedures. "In those cases radiation can be used but only after surgery. If a patient opts to have radiation before prostate gland removal, the chances of being able to perform the surgery later are very slim."

Dr. Samadi has performed over 3,500 successful robotic prostatectomy procedures and has a prostate cancer cure rate of 97 percent. For the more than 200,000 men diagnosed with prostate cancer each year, Dr. Samadi believes robotic prostatectomy is a very viable choice. "The message is not to operate on everyone, but the cancer doesn't belong there. Remove the cancer completely and know where you stand."

More can be seen from prostate cancer expert, Dr. David Samadi, who is also part of the Fox News Medical A-Team.
