Since 2013, DrSamadi has been the Chief of Robotic Surgery of Urology and the chief of Urology Lenox Hill Hospital. He is a graduate of Stony Brook School of Medicine, New York where he qualified as an MD. He later went to Montefiore Medical Center to achieve his residency in surgery in 1996 and specialized in urology at Albert Einstein College of Medicine in 2000. Following his great achievements in school, he got a fellowship in 2001 from Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center in urology oncology. For robotics surgery he got a fellowship from Henri Mondor Hospital in 2002. His impressive education background has given him the qualifications to hold the prestigious position he is in.

Being an expert in robotic surgery, DrSamadi gives lectures to his colleagues on the same. He has written several articles that help shed light on grey areas in robotic surgery. He also is the founder of and Director of Mount Sinai’s Robotic Fellowship Program. His expertise and efforts to further the practise of robotics surgery saw him be named as one of the best doctors in New York Magazine 2009 issue. His desire to share information with his colleagues and other interested parties in urology and robotics surgery, DrSamadi shares his views and expertise on DrSamadi TV.
One thing that keeps DrSamadi ahead in his field is his innovation. Having had years of experience as a surgeon, he came up with a surgical procedure that helps solve some of the challenges he has faced in the operating room. His new procedure, SMART, helps minimize pain and bleeding during the surgical process. This enables his patients to make quick recoveries and minimize the number of transfusions needed during the operation. This is achieved by avoiding incision and instead making only six small instrumental holes. When operating, DrSamadi does not open the side of the prostate and suture the dorsal vein complex. This helps avoid damaging the sphincter, nerves and tissues. The SMART procedure has intrigued the interest of many surgeons and received many positive complements.
DrSamadi’s insistence on none invasive methods to do his surgeries is for the patient’s benefit. By doing this, he has seen his patients get discharged 24 hours after the surgery. Most of his patients make full recovery in a shorter amount of time compared to those who go through more invasive procedures.
