Hydrophobic surface calculation

Dear colleagues,

we are searching for a program which calculates the total hydrophobic,
solvent accessible surface of a protein or a small molecule. 
It should read in a PDB file and output the surface area in Angstrom**2,
which is hydrophobic _and_ solvent accessible (hydrophobicity defined by
any of the hydrophobicity scales, solvent defined by a probe radius).
Ideally, the program uses a user editable parameter file, which 
equivalences atom names (as given in the PDB file), VdW radius and 
hydrophobicity index, so that the user can add atoms to it.
I would be glad if you could point me to such a program. 

Thank you for your help,
Juergen Pleiss
