Dr. David Samadi Recommends Surgery as a More Effective Way to Treat Prostate Cancer

Prostate cancer is among the fatal diseases affecting older men. Numerous people have been diagnosed with the illness among them prominent leaders. However, with the advancement in treatment methods, a significant number of affected individuals have had the disease cured. Mitt Romney, former Republican presidential nominee is among the 161,360 men who were diagnosed with prostate cancer last year. Recently, however, Mitt announced to have undergone surgery to remove the tumor. The surgery which was done by Dr. Thomas Ahlering at UC Irvine Hospital, California was successful.

Besides Mitt Romney, Colin Powel: former Secretary of State underwent a similar surgery at Walter Reed Army Medical Centre in 2003. John Kerry was also diagnosed with prostate cancer when he was running for United States Presidency. Fortunately, he underwent surgery and the illness hasn’t recurred since 2002.

As pointed out by Dr. David Samadi, the American Cancer Society has approximated around 164,690 new diagnoses of the illness this year. In most cases, individuals diagnosed with prostate cancer are those around 65 years and above with 66 years being the average age.

Before starting treatment, Dr. David Samadi takes his time to explain to his patient the pros and cons of the treatment methods. This way, individuals can understand what to expect. In cases where the tumor hasn’t grown deeply or spread to nearby parts, Samadi recommends both surgery and radiation. According to several studies, combining the two methods have proven to be more effective for patients with the disease contained in their prostate glands.

Dr. David Samadi, however, recommends surgery over radiation. The reason is that the side effects of radiation expose patients to the risk of developing secondary cancer such as rectal, or bladder cancer. Another reason is that if cancer comes back after radiation, it becomes almost impossible to perform surgery. Additionally, prostate cancer patients who undergo radiation treatment have a shorter lifespan and fewer chances of survival compared to those who undergo surgery. David Samadi advises men diagnosed with prostate cancer to consider the oncologist’s experience and qualifications. Knowledgeable practitioners will guide them successfully throughout the treatment process and help them make informed decisions.

After graduating with a degree in biochemistry from Stony Brook University, Samadi went to Stony Brook School of Medicine. He later joined Montefiore Medical Centre and Albert College of Medicine to sharpen his professional skills. Samadi served as the Chief of Robotic Surgery and Chairman of Urology at Lenox Hill Hospital. He is known for his innovative surgical developments and consistent health advises through his blog and radio shows.

Banco Bradesco’s CEO To Be Appointed From The Bank’s Pool Of Talent

Lazaro de Mello Brandao, former chairman of the board of directors of Banco Bradesco SA, resigned on October 11, 2017. Brandao, 91, deserved a break after serving at the bank for 74 years. Although Brandao began his career at the Osasco based Bradesco as a clerk in 1943, he never stopped rising through various ranks at the bank. His big break came in 1981 when Bradesco named him the second CEO of the bank, replacing Amado Aguiar. 10 years later, the bank management settled on Brandao to chair the bank’s board, once again taking over from Aguiar who was also the founder of the bank. Between 1991 and 1999, Brandao was both the chairman and the CEO of Bradesco. While he stepped down as CEO for Marcio Cypriano in 1999, he continued serving as chairman until his recent resignation.

Brandao’s resignation meant that the bank ought to move swiftly and appoint his successor. However, it appears as if Bradesco had foreseen Brandao’s stepping down as Luiz Carlos Trabuco, the CEO of Bradesco, was immediately named the new chairman of the bank. Until his tenure as CEO elapses in March, Trabuco is doubling up as the chairman and CEO of the financial institution.

Although appointing a Brandao’s successor was a walk in the park for Bradesco. The bank has remained mum regarding the appointment of a new CEO. The bank is known to choose CEOs from its high ranking executives and speculations are rife that seven executives are presently under consideration. They include

• André Rodrigues Cano
• Octavio de Lazari
• Marcelo de Araujo Noronha
• Josué Augusto Pancini
• Domingos Figueiredo Abreu
• Alexandre da Silva Gluher
• Mauricio Machado de Minas
Whoever the bank will settle on must embody Bradesco’s DNA seen in other CEOs. The bank will not consider professionals in competing or related institutions.

Luiz Carlos Trabuco became the fourth CEO of Bradesco in 2009, succeeding Marcio Cypriano. At the time of assuming office, the world economy, Brazil’s economy included, was experiencing a downturn whose effects were felt at the bank. Also, Bradesco was experiencing a unique challenge as the merger between Itaú and Unibanco had created the formidable Itaú Unibanco threatening Bradesco’s control of the Brazilian banking sector. However, Trabuco was not cowed. He initiated projects aimed at making Bradesco triumph over Itaú Unibanco. Some of the projects include the creation of Unibrad corporate University to foster professionalism and quality service delivery among Bradesco’s employees according to globo.com. GlobalCCU Awards recently named Unibrad the “Best Corporate University in the World.”

A more direct swing at Itaú Unibanco occurred in 2015 when Trabuco and Brandao settled on acquiring the retail unit of HSBC Brazil for $5.2 billion. With the acquisition, Bradesco ranked better than Itaú Unibanco in the number of branch network, number of account holders, and total investment funds. Although Itaú Unibanco remained the market leader in assets, deposits, and loans granted, Bradesco is closely trailing it. As the chairman of the bank, wielding more power and influence, Trabuco is likely to initiate projects or acquisitions that will propel the bank to the helm of Brazil’s financial sector.

Contrary to popular beliefs, Trabuco is not an accountant, an engineer, or a financial analyst. The 66-year-old executive studied philosophy at Sao Paulo State University. He later pursued socio-psychology at Fundação School of Sociology and Politics. During his 48-year-career at Bradesco, Trabuco has been recognized by various institutions and publications. In 2016, Trabuco was among the Forbes Magazine’s “Best CEOs in Brazil.” Isto É Dinheiro Magazine had named him the “Entrepreneur of the Year,” in the finance category a year earlier. Trabuco won the Don Quixote Trophy in 2009 among other awards.

Adam Milstein Has Blazed A Fascinating Trail Across Events Of The 20th Century and Beyond

In the 1973 Yom Kippur War, the Egyptian Army made a successful crossing of the Suez Canal and advanced almost unopposed deep into the Sinai Peninsula. Israeli forces were thrown back on their heels – but they stiffened their resolve and launched a counter-offensive that would drive back the Egyptians.

Under the command of Ariel Sharon, the Israelis exploited a seam between two Egyptian armies. In one of the most stunning military victories in history, the Egyptian forces were surrounded.

One of the young soldiers serving under Sharon’s command was Adam Milstein. He was just 19 years old but had done his part to protect the country he loved.

Adam Milstein was born in Haifa in 1952. His parents immigrated to Israel shortly after the country was founded in 1948. His mother hailed from Mexico and his father was a native of Argentina. The call of the Jewish nation brought then home. After the war, Adam entered study at the Israel Institute of Technology where he earned is bachelor’s degree in business and finance. He then followed his father into the real estate business. In 1974 Adam married Gila Elgrably in Haifa. The couple moved to the United States in 1981 to pursue opportunity.

While in the U.S., Adam furthered his education, earning a master’s degree in business from the University of Southern California. He then launched himself fully into the world of real estate. Today Adam Milstein is a managing partner with a major real estate operator based in Encino, California – Hager Pacific Properties, a company with assets of some $2 billion.

Adam Milstein is also a founder of the largest and fastest growing Jewish advocacy group in the United States, the Israeli-American Council, with more than 250,000 members to date. Adam Milstein has also given back much to his fellow American and the people of Israel through the foundation he established with his wife, the Adam and Gila Milstein Family Foundation. This organization sponsors young people to assist them with education and professional careers.

From Israel to America, Adam Milstein has made a significant mark in the modern history of his native Israel and his adopted country, the United States.
