As a reconstructive urologist, McCammon surgically addresses urethral stricture disease, male urinary incontinence, erectile dysfunction, female urinary incontinence, genital abnormalities, and a myriad of other genitourinary issues.


Born in Toledo, Ohio, McCammon obtained his B.A. in Biology from the University of Toledo in 1988. After this he proceeded to the University of Toledo College of Medical College of Ohio where he met his wife, Carol McCammon[1]. He matched for a surgical internship and Urology residency in Norfolk, Virginia, at Eastern Virginia Medical School. During residency, he was the recipient of the Intern of the Year, Upjohn Award in 1993 [2]. After graduating residency, he pursued further training in the Adult and Pediatric Genitourinary Reconstructive Surgery Fellowship at Eastern Virginia Medical School under the tutelage of Gerald Jordan, MD FACS and Steven Schlossberg, MD MBA.

Remaining at Eastern Virginia Medical School as part of Urology of Virginia, McCammon became Program Director for the Department of Urology, Fellowship Director for the Adult and Pediatric Genitourinary Reconstructive Surgery Fellowship, and eventually Chairman of the Department of Urology. Since that time he has helped training Urologists domestically and internationally on six continents. He serves on the Board for International Volunteers in Urology since 2016 and has helped foster a relationship with Caldera to improve global care for women with pelvic organ prolapse[3]. Through training local Urologists to perform urethral reconstructions in Senegal, the success rates of urethral reconstructions have doubled[4]. His passion is portrayed in a common theme he promotes frequently in lectures, “Teaching one, reaching many”[5]

Recently, Dr. McCammon and his wife, Dr. Carol McCammon, started a high school summer science program, the Health Sciences Academy, with Easter Virginia Medical School to offer exposure to the health sciences to students of diverse socioeconomic backgrounds. 2019 was the inaugural year, and there are plans to expand it to include neighboring school districts in the future[6][7] [8]


Dr. McCammon is the author of more than 50 peer reviewed articles[9] [10]
