Ashok K. Hemal, MS, DipNB, MCh, MAMS, FICS, FACS, FAMS, FRCS (Glasg): Professor, Department of Urology, Director, Robotics and Minimally Invasive Surgery, Wake Forest University School of Medicine, Wake Forest University Health Sciences, Medical Center Boulevard, Winston-Salem, NC. Dr Hemal has also contributed to several robotic programs worldwide.Dr. Mani Menon, MD: the Director of Vattikuti Urology Institute, Chairman of Urology at the Henry Ford Health System in Detroit is a well known figure in urologic academia for many years. He is widely published and renowned for his impeccable literary style. As the pioneer of robotic radical prostatectomy - did the first major study to compare open and robotic prostatectomies, published in the BJU Ints in 2003 - he has performed the largest number of such surgeries and has published his impressive results in the Journal of Urology and BJU Intl. He has also organized international workshops on robotic urology and made many presentations on this topic.
