Dr. David Samadi: Successful Prostate Cancer Surgery of Mitt Romney

Mitt Romney, the former Republican presidential candidate, happily released to the press that he had undergone a prostate surgery. During the last summer, he had suffered from a tumor that grew slowly and was further diagnosed with prostate cancer. The announcement of his health condition may able be done as his intent to continue running for the US Senate seat for Utah when Orrin Hatch leaves the position.

The surgery was a success because of the team of Dr. Thomas Ahlering. The procedure was done in the UC Irvine Hospital in California. The prognosis was noted to be very positive, even as a part of that statistic that 160,000 men were diagnosed with the same condition in 2017. The statistics seem steady for 2018, as American Cancer Society has estimated that there will be additional 160,000 for the year.

He particularity admired Barack Obama’s calm demeanor while under great pressure and stress. It is something that a lot of people can learn from and should strive to emulate. Remaining calm under pressure is also a critical part of any doctor’s line of work.

Ideamensch inquired what is a book that Dr. Haque recommends other people check out and read.

Dr. Haque was then asked what is a failure he has encountered in his life while being an entrepreneur. Ideamensch then followed up by asking him how he overcame that failure. Imran Haque said that at one point in his life he had a sock and textile business that was expanding too rapidly. At the same that this was occuring, Dr. Haque had a medical practice that was also growing at a fast pace. A lack of safeguards created problems for Haque as it was difficult to juggle both his growing medical practice and textile business.
