New Ideas from Dr. Samadi
Dr. Samadi is currently working on the Samadi Modified Advanced Robotic Technique for the removal of the prostate. Traditionally a procedure that peels the nerves off prior to prostate removal that can result in impotence and incontinence is used which results in men avoiding the removal of the prostate. The goal of the new technique it to avoid damaging the sphincter and nerves so that men will not be so anxious about prostate removal.
Dr. Samadi wants a center that will allow men to have all their health care needs met in one location.
