Date:9/29/2011

NEW YORK, Sept. 29, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- This spring Dr. David Samadi, Vice Chairman, Department of Urology, and Chief of Robotics and Minimally Invasive Surgery at The Mount Sinai Medical Center, delivered a prostate cancer cure to Curtis Sliwa, founder of the Guardian Angels. After a year of unsuccessful holistic treatments for prostate cancer, Sliwa underwent robotic prostatectomy surgery in the care of Dr. Samadi, a somewhat difficult procedure given Sliwa's prior abdominal surgeries. The two recently caught up on Sliwa's radio program to discuss the procedure and the limited exposure of prostate cancer in the press.
