Redefining the standards of urological care in our community and beyond
through excellence in research, education and compassionate innovative
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.
The mission of SURF is to improve urological care in our community and beyond through excellence in education, compassionate innovative health care, and research.
Our clinical and basic science research in the field of prostate cancer diagnosis and treatment has expanded with each passing year and will continue to do so.
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.
