At an unimaginable young age of 15, young Dr. David Samadi was forced to move from his country of birth to an alien nation. This move was pushed by the Iranian Movement making him seek refuge in Belgium since his birth country was no longer safe. However, more events continued to unravel for him since he had to relocate again to London before finally seeking permanent residence in the United States. While many would give up on their goals due to such happenings, Dr. David Samadi knew that he had to accomplish his dreams. Education was his only way out, and he pulled strings well.

His high school education was excellent, and it enabled him to win a full scholarship for his university education. He studied at Stony Brook University where he opted to learn biochemistry, a course he further advanced by earning an M.D from Stony Brook of Medicine sited in NY back in 1994. Further postgraduate education saw him enroll in Montefiore Medical center for urology studies and he as well studied proctology in 1996 at Albert Einstein College of Medicine. While being mentored by Professor Claude About, Dr. Samadi finalized his training on robotic radical prostatectomy fellowship in 2002, and he also studied proctology at the Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center.
After the long and intensive training, Dr. David Samadi eventually began practicing at Columbia Presbyterian Hospital. Before long, he became the vice chairman of the Urology Department in Mt. Sinai School of Medicine. Such promotions showed his dedication and love for his career, and this can be vividly showed by his creativity and innovativeness of inventing the Samadi Modified Advanced Robotic Treatment (SMART). This technology is particularized for carrying out prostate cancer surgeries, and he has used it to perform quality and successful operations to over 6,000 patients. This is in a short period of about a decade.
Since there are little successful and highly dedicated professionals in the medical field, it is impossible not to notice Dr. David Samadi’s contributions. Accordingly, he has been honored severally. For instance, he was awarded as the most compassionate doctor in 2011, America’s Top Doctors for Cancer in 2014, and he also pocketed the Vitals Patients’ Choice Award in 2014 as well. The New York Magazine also included him in the Best Doctor’s List, supporting the fact that he has made remarkable history of success as a specialized surgeon dealing with prostate, bladder and kidney cancers.
