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.
The physicians at Urology of Virginia are committed to quality care, many are nationally recognized, all are board certified and committed to new and innovative treatments and cures through our research affiliate SURF.
We service a large and growing number of patients and their referring doctors throughout Virginia and North Carolina. Our doctors work together as a team, share information and valuable case studies to ensure that each patient receives the best care possible.
