The SMART technique developed by David Samadi is the Surgery which is used to cure the patients of all age groups suffering from prostate cancer. It is the combination of advanced robotics and computer technology which gave rise to the emergence of new automation and technology.

Smart stands for:






The SMART technique uses the “Robotic Assisted Laparoscopic Prostatectomy (RALP)” technique using da Vinci robotic System which limits the surgical time to less than 2 hours in which the hospital recovery stays to less than 24 hours.

This technique provides the 3 Dimensional view of the surgical field via Insight Vision System which is the vast renovation in the two-dimensional visualization of the Laparoscopic Surgery and consists of the HD video cameras having the magnification 10X to 15X which provides the crystal vision to the operator.
