Frank Hinman Jr (1915 -2011): outstanding contribution to the world of urology

Introduction One name which stands tall among the leading figures in the world of urology is that of Frank Hinman Jr. He was a prolific writer, educator, teacher, surgeon and artist par excellence.
Materials and methods A comprehensive search was done on the life, works and achievement of Frank Hinman Jr.
Results Born to an illustrious father, Frank Jr was the eldest of the five sons of his parents. After completing his surgical residency in prestigious Cincinnati residency program, he joined the Navy as a Surgeon. On return from the Navy he completed his urology residency in the University of California.
He is credited to be one of the founding members of the Society of Pediatric Urologists thus laying the foundation of a subspecialty in 1951. His ground-breaking research on varied urologic conditions has enriched our understanding particularly the studies on bladder defense mechanisms in infection and the use of detubularized segment of the bowel for bladder substitution. His noteworthy contribution was to provide cognizance of the condition now known as Hinman Syndrome, a non-neurogenic lower urinary tract dysfunction. He promoted the concept of research amongst the residents in training but emphasized creation of facilities and financial support for them. His writing skills can be gauged by the fact that he has authored more than 250 published articles, several textbooks and the atlas of urology.
Conclusions Quite deservedly he was the recipient of several awards and accolades.
