Most of Dr. David Samadi’s patients have prostate cancer which requires an operation to cure. He invented a new type of robotic procedures in the surgery room which prevents the harmful side effects that conventional surgery can cause. He had always wanted to be a doctor when he grew up but once robotic surgery equipment was invented he knew he wanted to be a urologist. Robotic surgery is used extensively in this specialty and he was drawn to using this type of advanced technology, plus saving lives as well.
When Dr. David Samadi first started as a urologist he used conventional approaches to surgery. It was when he studied in France that he saw how urologists there were using a different approach, called laparoscopic technology. Once he saw this approach he decided to learn it and so he spent a year studying in the city of Creteil, France. Once he took his new knowledge back to the United States he started to greatly advance in his profession.
As an early bird, Dr. David Samadi likes to get an early start to the day. He gets up before 5 AM and arrives at his office by 6 AM. He says that the early hours of the workday are when he is most productive. He schedules the surgeries he performs later in the morning and the afternoon hours. After this he makes his rounds and talks to each of his patients.
In his free time, Dr. David Samadi enjoys spending time with his family and has a daughter named Jasmine. He says that his favorite sport to play is tennis.
