The Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine, first awarded in 1901, was established by Alfred Nobel to acknowledge "those who during the preceding year had conferred the greatest benefit on mankind." Two urologists have achieved this daunting task: Werner Theodore Otto Forssmann (1956) and Charles Brenton Huggins (1966). This article reflects the lives and accomplishments of these men as an inspiration to those who have likewise dedicated themselves to the field of urology.
