Case Summary:

Our client’s research focuses on medical robotics and its surgical applications for the treatment of pervasive diseases. His research in this area is of great importance because of his work’s applications in the treatment of bladder cancer. Bladder cancer takes an alarming toll not only on individual health but also on the broader population. As a medical robotics specialist focused on improving the surgical treatment methods for bladder cancer, his research is fundamental to chronic disease treatment and health promotion.

With our vast experience from over 15,000 I-140 approvals, we excel at organizing petitions for different individuals with different backgrounds. To begin with, we emphasized that our client has built an impressive record of publication. As evidence of his contributions, his work has resulted in 6 peer-reviewed journal articles (4 of them first-authored), 7 peer-reviewed conference articles (4 of them first-authored) and 1 first-authored conference abstract. Moreover, these papers have been published in the top journals in the field, which reflects his peers’ recognition of the value of this research. His significance in the field is displayed by the 21 times his works were cited and the 4 times of peer reviews he performed.

We also included 6 letters of recommendation signed by notable experts in the field in the petition packet. The following statements are how the fellow experts describe our client’s research in the recommendation letter:

    • “[Client’s] work has been considered quite valuable by government entities. (…) Moreover, it shows that his work is considered important to advancing the state-of-the—art in surgical robotics in the United States.”
    • “With his vast experience in the design of surgical robots, [Client] is in an excellent position to further improve the performance of these robots and benefit patients across the country.”

With our help, we are delighted that his NIW petition was approved within 7 months. We thank our client for trusting us and to be a part of his success story.
