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.
