Robotic prostatectomy surgery – After robotic prostate surgery, a man's prostate-specific antigen (PSA) level typically remains at zero, and for someone being treated for prostate cancer diagnosis, that zero is like a golden egg.  A PSA of zero means that cancer cells are undetectable.

Surgeon experience – Dr. Samadi shared two critical questions to ask when choosing a robotic surgeon:

  1. How many cases and procedures have you performed?
  2. Who performs the surgery? Are you in control of the procedure or do you travel from room to room overseeing others?

Radiation – Dr. Samadi clarified that radiation for prostate cancer should be used as a last resort if the surgery fails to eliminate the cancer, which, he says, is rare – or if a patient is not a surgical candidate.

Dr. Samadi conducts each robotic prostatectomy procedure himself from start to finish and has performed over 3,500 surgeries. His patients have a cure rate of 97 percent. With the precise dexterity and enhanced vision the da Vinci Surgical System robot provides during surgery, Dr. Samadi is able to spare the tiny nerve bundles that control sexual and urinary function.
