Best Urologist in New York City – Dr. David Samadi

Graduating with honors from the Stony Brook School of Medicine in 1994, Dr. Samadi has come a long way to become the best American Urologist. Born in Iran in 1964, Samadi and his brother had to flee to Belgium to escape the 1979 Revolution aftermath. As a Jew, his family was a target among extremist groups who found favor with the new government. The two brothers left their parents and their only sister for a better life. He came to the United States in 1984 while still a high school student. His parents were running a business back in Iran and were able to finance their education in high school.

He completed his high school and got a scholarship to study biochemistry. He went on to Stony Brook School of Medicine for his M.D and completed his postgraduate proctology at Montefiore Medical Center. The motivation to excel in his medical career was as a result of the expectations of his parents. Although he communicated to his parents regularly while he was a student, he had to cope with feelings of loneliness. Dr. Samadi has two children with his wife SaharDanielpour, and they are currently living together in Old Westbury.

Dr. Samadi is passionate about using invasive surgery while treating his prostate cancer patients. Through continuous research, he invented SMART (Samadi Modified Advanced Robotic Treatment) a modern invasive surgery that uses da Vinci® robotic surgical system. His invention has enabled him to do more than 7,000 surgeries. This treatment has been so successful that 90% of patients treated with SMART are currently cancer free. He aims to treat prostate cancer without the possibility of damaging the life of the patient through blood clots, losing sexual function, and radiation effects.

Dr. Samadi is currently the Chief of Robotic Surgery and the Chairman of Urology at Lenox Hill Hospital which is in New York City. Also, he is the director and founder of Mount Sinai Robotic Fellowship Program. He is a member of American Medical Association, Medical Advisory Board in PinnacleCare International, and American Urologic Association.

Because of his success, he has been featured in acclaimed publications and shows such as Cable News 12, Forbes, New York Magazine and Connecticut’s Cable News.
