Dr. David Samadi was born in Iran and is a member of the Persian Jewish community.
After the Iranian Revolution in 1979, Dr. David and another member of his family left Iran and went to Belgium, after which he went to London and finally settled in the United States.
It is in the US where Samadi completed high school in Roslyn, New York. Later, Dr.
David Samadi did his undergraduate studies in biochemistry and topped
them off with postgraduate studies in both proctology and urology.
Dr. David Samadi is the man behind the SMART technique to help with
recovery after prostate surgery and reduce the recovery time after
surgery. This smart technique largely reduces the amount of damage
that can possibly be done during surgery as well as speeds up the
recovery rate of the patient. He brought together the DaVinci robot
and the SMART technique, and the outcome was that only 24 hours would
be needed before a patient is released from hospital after surgery.
This technique should never be performed in early learning with
robotic surgery as it is very advanced.

during the entire day. He also revealed that he performs surgeries 2

patients before leaving for home to ensure that they are okay. Dr.
David Samadi added that he has a photographic memory and if a great
idea pops up in his mind, he sketches it out or creates a diagram. He
