Dr. David Samadi: Champion of Prostate Cancer Treatment

As the current Chairman of Urology and Chief of Robotic Surgery at Lennox Hill Hospital in New York City, Dr. David Samadi is well known for his phenomenal and innovative contributions to medicine and surgery, particularly in the field of urology. For these reasons, Dr. David Samadi also serves as a Professor of Urology at Hofstra North Shore-LIJ School of Medicine so that he can share his insights with future doctors.

However, Dr. Samadi had to go through his share of hardship to climb to the prestigious positions he currently holds. As an Iran native, he had to flee his home country in face of the Iranian Revolution. He travelled throughout Europe as a teenager to complete his high school education and eventually made it to Stony Brook University in New York, where he studied biochemistry.

He continued his education at Stony Brook School of Medicine, where he completed his dream of becoming a doctor. He continued to focus on urology after graduation at various medical skills so that he could become an expert in his field. After beginning a practice in urology, he became well-known for his dedication to his patients and determination to find a solution. He studied various types of cancers extensively, including kidney, bladder, and prostate.

His success in the medical field as made him well-known as an expert of urology. For this reason, he has appeared on Fox News multiple times to discuss various aspects of healthcare and has even developed and produced his own radio show, called “World Health News”. In addition, he is an exceptional writer, having written numerous studies, articles, blog posts, and books.

One recent article of his outlines his opinion of former Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney. Romney had discovered a tumor and as a result went through prostate surgery, which was ultimately a success. While Dr. Samadi did not perform the surgery, he used this opportunity to explain how crucial it is for men to get regular check ups on their prostate, as many older men are afflicted by prostate cancer. He also states that while both surgery and radiation therapy can treat prostate cancer, he usually opts for surgery, as radiation can have many negative side effects. Dr. Samadi has clearly contributed so much to the field of urology and will continue to offer his wisdom and insight to the patients that he cares about so much.

Why Banco Bradesco SA Needs A New CEO

CEOs and chairpersons of institutions wield a lot of power over the success, or lack of it thereof, of a company more so if that organization is Banco Bradesco SA, the second largest private bank in Brazil. Bradesco has over 74 years of quality service delivery to Brazilians and its customers across the globe. Bradesco, which is based in Osasco, came into being in 1943. The bank is the brainchild of the deceased Amado Aguiar (1904 – 1991). Apart from being the founder of the bank, Aguiar was also the first CEO and the first president of the board of directors of Bradesco.

Obviously, during Aguiar’s time at the helm of Bradesco, Bradesco was not huge a financial institution that currently is. As per the 2016’s balance sheet, Bradesco earned gross revenues totaling to $50 billion. As at last year, the banks’ totals assets were slightly below $420 billion. Bradesco has over five thousand branches and over 100 thousand employees delivering services to customers in those branches. Apart from banking services, Bradesco has ventured into other businesses including insurance. Credit goes to all the leaders that came after Aguiar; they include Lazaro de Mello Brandao, Marcio Cypriano, and Luiz Carlos Trabuco.

Lazaro de Mello Brandao

Starting his career at Bradesco as a clerk and with modest academic qualifications, nobody envisioned that Brandao would be Aguiar’s successor. Bradesco hired Brandao in 1943—the same year that Aguiar established the bank in Marilia. Although it took 20 years for Brandao to earn a significant promotion, director, the experienced banker was unstoppable. The bank named him vice president in 1977 and president four years later. As the president of the bank, Brandao worked alongside Aguiar who had retained his position as the chairman of the board of directors. However, Aguiar passed on in 1991, and Brandao was named the new chairman of the bank.

At the time, Bradesco was rapidly expanding, and in 1999, Brandao could no longer hold both positions on brasil247.com. Marcio Cypriano was appointed to become the third president of the bank. Relieved of some duties, Brandao continued serving the bank as chairman. Brandao and Cypriano were keen on expanding Bradesco’s control of the Brazilian banking sector. The two acquired 10 smaller banks cementing Bradesco’s position as the leading private bank.

After 10 years of service to Bradesco, it was Cypriano’s turn to step down and allow a new CEO to carry on with the work he had initiated. Since the bank has no age limit for chairpersons, Cypriano stepped down for Luiz Carlos Trabuco while Brandao held on to the chairmanship of the bank according to globo.com.

Under the leadership of Luiz Carlos Trabuco and Brandao, Bradesco witnessed significant changes. Itaú and Unibanco merged creating Itaú Unibanco which emerged as the most prominent private bank—bigger than Bradesco. The merger was completed in 2009. After being used to being market leaders, Brandao and the entire board of directors of Bradesco were not amused by the occurrence. The new CEO—Luiz Carlos Trabuco—began figuring out various ways the bank could regain its lost glory. He settled on inorganic growth strategies. In 2015, Brandao and Luiz Carlos Trabuco agreed to purchase the Brazilian branch of HSBC for $5.2 billion. Although the acquisition did not put Bradesco ahead of Itaú Unibanco, it edged it closer to its rival.

On October 11, 2017, Brandao, 91, stepped down as chairman of Bradesco. Owing to the sensitivity of the position, Luiz Carlos Trabuco was named the new chairman. However, after serving as president for eight years, Luiz Carlos Trabuco will resign in March. Bradesco needs a new CEO. Who will it be?

During this time Adam learned the ins and outs of real estate.

In 1974 Adam Milstein went on to marry his wife, Gila, a graduate of the Rothschild Hospital Nursing School and a former officer in the Israeli army, before moving his family to the United States.
