Dr. Samadi is Chief of Robotics and Minimally Invasive Surgery and Vice Chair of Urology at The Mount Sinai Medical Center. A board-certified urologist, he treats prostate cancer with a focus on minimally invasive techniques. He specializes in robotic prostate surgery, and has an unparalleled expertise in the field thanks to over 4500 procedures he has performed with the da Vinci Surgical System. A graduate of Stony Brook University School of Medicine, Dr. Samadi completed residencies in general surgery at Montefiore Medical Center and urology at Albert Einstein College of Medicine. He received fellowships in urologic oncology from Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center and in robotics in radical prostatectomy from Henri Mondor Hospital in Creteil, France, where he studied under esteemed Professor Clément-Claude Abbou. Dr. Samadi joined Columbia Presbyterian Hospital after completing his education. He served as Director of Robotic Laparoscopic Surgery in the Department of Urology. A member of the American Urologic Association and the American Medical Association, he became one of only two surgeons in New York City qualified to perform a robotic prostatectomy. Throughout the course of more than a thousand procedures, Dr. Samadi has established himself as a pre-eminent surgeon in the field of robotics, making superior and compassionate patient care the cornerstone of his practice. As one of only a handful of surgeons trained in open, laparoscopic, and robotic techniques, Dr. Samadi provides the skills of three separate surgical disciplines. He combines a complete understanding of traditional open surgery with less painful, minimally invasive laparoscopy, and advanced robotic technology. With such a unique and well-rounded perspective, Dr. Samadi offers patients the most complete knowledge of prostate cancer procedures, and the best possible chance at both a cure and a return to a normal, healthy life.
