A support group for men afflicted with prostate cancer has been created by Dr. David Samedi at Lenox Hill Hospital in New York City. The support group will launch in September. It will provide support and assistance for men and their families as they undergo treatment for prostate cancer. Dr. David Samedi is the chief of robotic surgery at Lenox Hill Hospital and is also the head of the urology department there. Mr. Samedi is also a board certified urologic oncologist who is considered to be one of the world’s foremost experts on the treatment of prostate cancer.
Dr. David Samedi says he is very excited about the launch of the new support group at Lenox Hill Hospital. As a surgeon who treats prostate cancer using robotic surgery, Dr. Samedi realizes how debilitating and devastating prostate cancer can be. His new support group provides men suffering from and recovering from prostate cancer an avenue to discuss their experiences and support one another. It can make a world of a difference to someone suffering from prostate cancer to be able to share their story with others and lean against them for support as they battle the disease. Discussions at the newly launched support group will also be kept confidential to protect the rights and privacy of those attending the support group’s meetings.
Another key goal of the new prostate cancer support group at Lenox Hill Hospital in New York is to promote yearly checkups for prostate cancer for men. Early detection can greatly increase the chances of successful recovery. Dr. David Samedi states that prostate cancer is the second leading cause of death for men in the USA and it is imperative that men check their prostates on a regular basis.
Both survivors and those recently diagnosed with prostate cancer are welcome to attend the support group led by Dr. David Samedi. Survivors of prostate cancer are welcome to share their story of recovery and gain support after surviving this disease. Newly diagnosed patients can come to learn more about the disease and what options they have available to them for treatment.
Dr. Samedi is also a medical contributor to publications such as Fox News. He frequently discusses issues of health and disease at Fox News both on live television as a contributor and on the web as a writer.
