Dominican Republic Names First Robotic Surgery Unit in Recognition of World-Renowned Surgeon, David B. Samadi, MD

Dr. David Samadi Attended the Inauguration of the Samadi Robotic Institute at HOMS and Performed the First-Ever Robotic Prostate Surgery in the Dominican Republic

NEW YORK, NY -- (Marketwired) -- 02/28/14 -- This week, world-renowned robotic prostate surgeon, David B. Samadi, MD, joined President Danilo Medina of the Dominican Republic to inaugurate and unveil the first Samadi Robotic Surgical Institute at the Hospital Metropolitano de Santiago (HOMS), pioneering robotic surgery in the Dominican Republic. While there, Dr. Samadi was honored for his humanitarian efforts in prostate cancer, and performed the first-ever robotic prostate surgery in the Dominican Republic.

"I am pleased to be part of the first robotic institute and medical advancement at the Hospital Metropolitano de Santiago (HOMS)," said Dr. Samadi, prostate cancer treatment expert and Chairman of Urology and Chief of Robotic Surgery at Lenox Hill Hospital. "The new Institute and the acquisition of the Da Vinci Surgical System will bring tremendous life-saving opportunities to patients throughout the Caribbean."

The new Samadi Robotic Institute at HOMS is comprised of four state-of-the-art operating rooms to be lead by surgeons Dr. Rafael Sánchez Español, Dr. Juan Felix Chaplain, Dr. José Alvarez Torres, and Dr. Hector Sanchez Navarro. The experienced laparoscopic surgeons traveled to the Da Vinci Surgical facilities in Houston, Texas and Phoenix, Arizona for training in the latest robotic surgery techniques. The Samadi Robotic Institute at HOMS will serve patients in need of urologic, gynecologic, head, neck, oncology, and general robotic surgery.

"Robotic surgery expertise builds with time," said Dr. Samadi who, like the HOMS surgeons, began his robotics career as a proficient open and laparoscopic surgeon. "These new operating rooms and Da Vinci systems are an important step in the evolution of improved patient care here in the Dominican Republic. In the months and years to come, these surgeons will help patients achieve significant recovery benefits."

International patients often travel to the United States seeking Dr. Samadi's robotic prostate surgery treatment at Lenox Hill Hospital. With more than 5,600 successful procedures to his name, Dr. Samadi employs his own Samadi Modified Advanced Robotic Technique (SMART) to achieve operating times under two hours, a blood-free operating field, and high prostate cancer cure rates. Urinary continence and sexual potency are enjoyed by nearly all of his patients within a year of surgery.

Dr. Samadi is encouraged by the continuous advancement of international hospitals as they adopt robotic surgery procedures and hone their skills. As the net of robotic expertise expands, the opportunities for international collaboration grow, as well. Surgeons can work together from thousands of miles apart, sharing knowledge in the diagnosis, treatment, and recovery of patients worldwide.

Too often with compelling new technologies market participants become overly enamored with that attractiveness of the technology and neglect underlying business drivers. This tendency, what some call the “newest shiny object syndrome,” is understandable given that virtually all of us are heavily engaged in technology. But it is also mistaken.
