161,360 men were diagnosed with prostate cancer in 2017. According to the American Cancer Society, this number is expected to reach 164,690 in 2018 alone. Mitt Romney was one of these men in 2017 when he was diagnosed and consequently had surgery to remove cancer performed that same year. Most cases of prostate cancer, 6 out of 10, are diagnosed in men 65 and older. Mitt Romney fit this statistically at the age of 70 at diagnosis. Fortunately for the former Republican Presidential Nominee, the prognosis looks great and Dr. David Samadi agrees. The Oncologist and Urologist is known around the world as one of the leading doctors to treat prostate cancer. He is also a frequent contributor and guest to Fox News concerning health issues, and not just prostate cancer.
Dr. David Samadi tells his own patients of the benefits of choosing surgery over just radiation therapy alone. While it sometimes may have to be used to ensure that the existing cancer is localized to the prostate, choosing to treat with only chemotherapy can drastically reduce the chances and length of survival for prostate cancer patients. If a man chooses radiation therapy alone over surgery, he is twice as likely to die from cancer and 1.5 times likely to die sooner than a man who chose to treat his prostate cancer with surgery.
Incidentally, radiation is much less likely to destroy all of the cancer and the side effects of it alone can cause secondary cancers that are just as deadly as the initial diagnosis. Dr. David Samadi informs his patients of the benefits of removing the prostate after diagnosis including the statistic that they will have an almost one hundred percent survival rate if the surgery is completed after the cancer is localized just to the prostate. The chances of surviving prostate cancer for longer than five years is less than thirty percent if the patient chooses radiation over surgery initially. In fact, once radiation is started it makes it much more difficult to perform the surgery afterward as the risks are increased even more.
Dr. David Samadi has been the Chairman of Urology at Lenox Hill Hospital since June 2013 as well as being the Chief of Robotic Surgery. Samadi has performed over 7,000 robotic-assisted surgeries in his career and is making improvements to the already renowned urology program at Lenox Hill.
