Dr. David Samadi grew up in the Persian Jewish community in Iran. During the 1979 revolution, he fled to the United States. There he finished high school and attended college. Dr. David Samadi first earned his B.S. at Stony Brook University. He followed that with his M.D. at Montefiore Medical Center. He attained the status of an celebrity doctor following a weekly show on the Fox News Channel. It was titled “Sunday Housecall” and ran from 2011-2016. He is currently the Chairman of Urology and Chief of Robotic Surgery at Lenox Hill Hospital in New York City.
On the website Huffpost, Dr. David Samadi wrote an article regarding Mitt Romney’s recent treatment for prostate cancer. Many people take this as a sign Mitt Romney plans to run for the U.S. Senate seat in Utah. He would replace the retiring senator Orrin Hatch. Naturally, Mitt Romney is hardly the only politician to deal with a prostate issue. Both Colin Powell and John Kerry previously had surgery in the early 2000s during their politically active eras.
Unfortunately prostate cancer is a common issue for males, especially in their later years. Men in the upper 60s or older are most likely to develop the condition. Dr. David Samadi conducted Mitt Romney’s surgery at UC Irvine Hospital in California. It was performed by Dr. Thomas Ahlering, who is very talented in his field. Surgery is often considered the best solution for this cancer.

While surgery is a common and swift treatment solution, other people may opt for radiation. Dr. David Samadi talks about how he makes sure to explain both options to his patients. That allows them to knows all the options on the table. He personally recommends surgery. It’s a simpler and more effective method in nearly each aspect. Radiation is just more risky in general. The survival rate is substantially lower. It may even led to other complications like other forms of cancer.
At the end of the day, Men should at least consult with their doctor over which treatment is the correct one for them. It’s very easy to recover from with the correct treatment and a good doctor.
