General Field: Gastroenterology

Position at the Time of Case Filing: Fellow

Country of Origin: India

State of Residence at the Time of Filing: Ohio

Approval Notice Date: September 24th, 2021

Processing Time: 31 days (Premium Processing Requested)

Case Summary:

An EB-1A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability) petition approval was granted to a fellow with a MBBS from India. Before starting off with a client-attorney agreement, the North American Immigration Law Group evaluated his provided credentials to determine his EB-1A success. We deduced that we could lead him to obtain the alien of extraordinary ability only after a thorough evaluation. Our team thus followed a proficient process of analyzing his background, paperwork, and the associated evidence, and were then only assured that they were enough to persuade USCIS and get our client the EB-1A approval.

We highlighted the following particulars to make his case a success:

  • We recognized the 42 peer-reviewed scientific articles he published in some of the most discerning, high-impact journals in his field of gastroenterology.
  • An awe-inspiring record of obtaining 314 citations in other peer-reviewed journal articles and having been cited by researchers in at least 31 countries, further indicated the major significance of his work.
  • He has also been invited as a judge to review and evaluate the work of his peers and has conducted at least 30 reviews to date thus serving as major evidence of his expertise in the field.

In addition, our client’s research addresses some of our nation’s and the world’s most pressing issues, including improving clinical recovery for patients with gastrointestinal illnesses and reducing the need for invasive surgical procedures. His strong background in endoscopic ultrasound and interventional techniques has allowed his research to be particularly original, resulting in his success in fundamentally transforming gastroenterology and hepatology research. He is particularly well-known for his contributions to the management of hypertriglyceridemia induced acute pancreatitis.

Furthermore, considering the effective articles he has published and the numerous citations his work has attained prove that he has a prominent status in the field, which has been corroborated by the documentary evidence and testimony from other experts in the field, establishing that it is assuredly in the interests of the United States to retain his unique talents. The following 2 statements are excerpted from two of the four recommendation letters submitted:

“In summary, [client] is a leading expert in gastroenterology and an eminently qualified research scientist and physician. His critical discoveries while studying interventional endoscopy have proved to be of great use to the United States and to the many Americans suffering from GI disease or malignancy, and he has gone above and beyond in service to his field through his dedication to conducting peer-review.”

“[Client] has made a number of important discoveries in gastroenterology, and primarily coordinates his research around gastrointestinal (GI) disease and endoscopic ultrasound and intervention. He has put his tremendous abilities with state-of-the-art endoscopic tools and techniques to great use in his study of gastrointestinal illness and is a very uncommonly talented researcher in this respect. The field of gastroenterology is vastly improved by his presence within it, and I feel secure in my decision to contend that he is a critically important figure to the present and future of gastroenterology research.”

Our client’s research thus successfully proved that endoscopic gastroenterostomy, a procedure performed in patients with gastric cancers blocking the passage of food, is effective at removing the blockage. Hence, his research is a remarkable step forward in terms of treating this very serious condition and would definitely benefit the hundreds of thousands of people living with severe gastric cancers and an inability to eat solid foods.

We are delighted that our team was once again successful in persuading USCIS of the importance of our client’s research in the United States. Thanks to premium processing, he was granted his EB-1A approval in just 31 days. We would sincerely like to thank him for choosing our law firm and congratulate him for getting a grip on this expansive process and accomplishing this breakthrough.
