I am from CT also. The research I did on surgery led me to Dr. D. Samadi, New York.  Although I have not decided if surgery will be the right choice for me Dr. Samadi appears to be one of the best.

Hi,

I had my Prostate surgery with the CT Surgical Group at Hartford Hospital after several considerations. A very experienced group. Dr. Laudone performed the actual surgery, he is at Memorial Sloan Kettering in NYC now.
