Dr. David B. Samadi is the Chairman of Urology and Chief of Robotic Surgery at Lenox Hill Hospital in New York City. A board certified urologist, Samadi specializes in the diagnosing and treatment of urological diseases, and cancers of the prostate, kidney and bladder. He will take his knowledge and talent on the air as part of the live “Sunday Housecall” show on Fox News, starting this past September.
Also available on Twitter, Facebook, Youtube live and http://www.drsamaditv.com/, the show brings together guests from the world of health to talk with Dr. Samadi. The goal is simple: provide the public with answers to common medical questions and issues, as well as provide advice to help people lead healthier and better lives. Topics include general men’s and women’s health, exercise and diet, sexual and mental health, and common diseases.
Samadi is aiming to keep the show to the same high standard he sets for himself. Guests must have submitted peer-reviewed work or published work, ensuring only the most knowledgeable and factual guests and information. In an era in which medical advice can often be convoluted or hindered by pseudo-science, Samadi wishes to make sure that only the most accurate and relevant stories, advice and tips make it to the live screen. The live format allows questions and calls direct from the viewers regarding the topics being discussed. He hopes that this will provide an array of medical information for viewers to use in their lives.
Dr. David B. Samadi grew up in Iran, fleeing in 1979 during the Iranian Revolution. He spent time studying in the United States, Belgium and England. His work and experience earned him a scholarship to Stony Brook University in New York, where he earned both his bachelor’s and medical degrees. After graduation, Samadi continued his education via fellowships as he worked, especially in the fields of proctology and oncology before focusing on urology. He also has been a proponent of technology such as the use of robotics in surgery to help with minimizing invasive procedures.
A prior contributor to Fox News as a medical correspondent, Dr. David B. Samadi enjoys diversifying his medical experience, while still remaining an expert in his field of urology, focusing on early detection and treatment of urological cancers. With over 7,000 surgeries to his credit, Samadi has made good on his childhood ambition to help people, and with his new show, he wishes to broaden that help to the public at large.
