With Over 3,000 Robotic Prostatectomy Surgeries to His Credit, Dr. David Samadi, MD Discusses SMART Surgery and How it Improves Sexual and Urinary Function
Date:9/29/2010

the urinary sphincter, responsible for continence, are within 1-2mm of the prostate. The robot allows Dr. Samadi to preserve the urethral length and restore a watertight reconnection of the bladder to the urethra with less scarring. Urinary control can be regained within days of surgery to up to 12 months. However, many of Dr. Samadi's patients regain urinary control within the first few weeks. Permanent incontinence is rare. Sexual function recovery varies also from days after surgery to up to 2 years.

"Older prostate surgery techniques had surgeons working blindly, solely by touch, which is a complete contrast to the high definition 3D magnification that the robot provides," said Dr. Samadi. The da Vinci robot allows Dr. Samadi to operate in a relatively bloodless field to help him accurately remove the prostate with precision nerve sparing. Because of the improved visibility and the robot's precise surgical control, Dr. Samadi is able to see, in great detail, the nerve bundles that he wants to preserve. He is able to not only provide a cancer cure, but by preserving these nerve bundles, he can restore continence and sexual function.

By minimizing injury to these delicate nerves and surrounding areas, the athermal SMART Surgery Technique has proven success rates in men for normal sexual and urinary function. Dr. David Samadi, who does not believe in running numerous simultaneous operating rooms, performs the entire surgery from beginning to end. His patients experience a faster recovery and usually spend just one night in the hospital; most are discharged the next day. Because of reduced blood loss, smaller incisions and less pain, patients can typically walk the day of their surgery, which is why patients fly in from all over the world for Dr. Samadi's "personal touch."

"I know how important a cure is to my patients, but I also know how important it is for them to be able to not experience incontinence after a prostatectomy and to be able to
