The department of urology at Wake Forest University Baptist Medical Center, Winston-Salem, NC, has added three new urologic oncologists to its faculty: Ashok K. Hemal, MD, A. Karim Kader, MD, PhD, and Joseph A. Pettus IV, MD.

Dr. Hemal, a professor of urology, is director of the Robotic and Minimally Invasive Urologic Surgery Program at Wake Forest Baptist. He is a pioneer in establishing robot-assisted surgery in the field of urology, having helped develop the initial surgical protocols currently used by most urologists performing robotic surgery. He has traveled throughout the world initiating robotic and laparoscopic surgery programs for a wide range of urologic conditions involving the prostate, bladder, ureter, and kidney.

Dr. Kader and Dr. Pettus are active in several national and international clinical trials on the management and outcome of urologic cancers, including cancers of the prostate, bladder, and kidney. They perform robotic, laparoscopic, and open surgery for urologic malignancies. Dr. Kader and Dr. Pettus are both assistant professors specializing in urologic oncology.
