Improving urological care in our community and beyond through excellence in education, compassionate innovative health care, transformative research, and humanitarian medical missions.
The Foundation was established to unify and support a team of clinicians and scientists to develop more accurate diagnostic tests and successful treatment strategies for patients with diseases of the urogenital system, particularly prostate cancer. The original foundation, the Virginia Prostate Center, founded by Dr. Paul Schellhammer, later expanded the scope of research to include other cancers and benign urological diseases. The Foundation name was later changed to the Schellhammer Urological Research Foundation to honor its founder, Paul Schellhammer, MD.
SURF’s mission is to improve urological care in our community and beyond through excellence in education, compassionate innovative health care, transformative research, and humanitarian medical missions.
SURF has four areas of focus:
Funding from SURF enables researchers and physicians to focus on insights, inclusion and innovation, bringing the best to the future of urology.
Our intent and hope is that the Schellhammer Urological Research Foundation will provide a wellspring of support for improving the quality and quantity of life of patients with urological cancer as well as benign diseases of the urinary system.
SURF – is the foundation at Urology of Virginia. Its office is housed in the Clearfield location and is staffed remotely.
