Paul H. Chung, MD
Department of Urology, Sidney Kimmel Medical College, Thomas Jefferson University, Philadelphia, PA, USA

Dr. Paul Chung is an Associate Professor and Director of Reconstructive Urology at Thomas Jefferson University in Philadelphia, PA. He graduated with a BS in electrical engineering from Northwestern University in Evanston, IL. He obtained his medical degree at Thomas Jefferson University and subsequently completed general surgery and urology residency training at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center in Dallas, Texas. He completed a research fellowship at the Urologic Oncology Branch of the National Institutes of Health in Bethesda, MD and a clinical fellowship in urologic trauma, reconstruction, and prosthetics at the University of Washington Medical Center in Seattle, Washington.

Dr. Chung has an active clinical practice in urethral stricture disease, erectile dysfunction, urinary incontinence, prosthetic surgery, Peyronie’s disease, open and robotic urinary tract reconstruction, extramammary Paget’s disease, buried penis repair, and genitourinary trauma. He is a member of the American Urologic Association, Society of Genitourinary Reconstructive Surgeons, Société Internationale d'Urologie, Sexual Medicine Society of North America, Society of Urologic Prosthetic Surgeons, and American College of Surgeons.

Lindsay A. Hampson, MD MAS
Department of Urology, University of California San Francisco, San Francisco, CA, USA

Dr. Lindsay Hampson is an Assistant Professor of Urology at the University of California San Francisco (UCSF) where she also serves as the Associate Residency Program Director and the Associate GURS Fellowship Director. She received her undergraduate training from Duke University, where she earned a degree in Bioethics. She then completed a 2-year research fellowship at the National Institutes of Health in the Department of Clinical Bioethics and earned her MD from the University of Michigan Medical School on a full academic scholarship as a Dean's Scholar. She completed her general surgery and urology training at the University of California, San Francisco, during which time she also undertook a research fellowship at the UCSF Philip R. Lee Institute for Health Policy Studies. She went on to complete a fellowship in Genitourinary Reconstruction & Trauma at the University of Washington in Seattle and receive a Masters in Clinical Research at UCSF.

Dr. Hampson's clinical interests focus on genitourinary reconstruction, including male and female urethral stricture disease, adult hypospadias, adult male incontinence, surgical treatment for male genital skin deficiency (i.e., buried penis), reconstruction following genital necrotizing soft tissue infection, complications related to radiation/surgery (i.e., rectourethral fistula and ureteral stricture), and acute/delayed reconstruction following genitourinary trauma. She is also Co-Director of the UCSF Lifetime Congenital Urology Program, where she strives to redefine transitional urology care in order to improve the care of pediatric patients with congenital urologic problems who require further reconstruction and urologic care as adults.

Dr. Hampson's research interests integrate her background of ethics, health policy, and urologic trauma and reconstruction in order to conduct health services and outcomes research. Her primary research interests include improving quality of care and patient decision-making in the context of aging, management of stress urinary incontinence in older adults, understanding and clinical and quality of life outcomes of patients with urologic congenitalism, and conducting research on a variety of conditions within trauma and adult reconstruction.
