Dr. David Samadi of the Fox News Medical “A-Team” has performed Israel’s first ever “SMART Surgery” robotic prostate removal surgery at Rambam Hospital in Haifa, with three surgeries performed in total over the past three days.
Dr. David B. Samadi, originally from Iran, whose father was executed by the Iranian government for being “too successful a Jew”, has brought his revolutionary robotic surgery to one of the most highly technological countries and hospitals in the world. And the excitement is mutual. Samadi learned and taught quite a bit on his visit to Israel.
The full circle of Samadi coming to Israel to perform and teach robotic surgery comes on many levels. For someone whose father was killed by a totalitarian, religious extremist country, coming to the Jewish homeland to teach how to save lives, is more than just a humanitarian mission. He sees it as a national and religious duty.
A very special doctor unified with a very special land to promote saving lives.
