Lee S. Moore, MD, MBA

I am periodically asked why I chose a specialty like urology. Many of the illnesses that a urologist treats cause tremendous pain and suffering. To be able to relieve the pain of a kidney stone or surgically cure a malignancy is gratifying and is a privilege to be able to accomplish. Urology is a technically challenging field with new diagnostic and therapeutic modalities being developed (robotic, laparoscopic, etc). Incorporating these new technologies into the practice and at Cookeville Regional Medical Center has been exciting. Urology encompasses much more than surgical therapies. The majority of our patients do not need surgery because medical therapy is appropriate. In summary, the combination of surgical and office practices is very gratifying and stimulating and allows us to provide not only relief from disease processes (cancer, infections, etc.) but also to improve quality of life (urinary incontinence, vasectomy,etc.).

Legacy & Family

My grandfather, “Dr. Tom” Moore, practiced medicine in Algood from 1899 until my father, “Dr. Jack” Moore, took over his practice in 1951. He practiced until his death in 1999. Having had these wonderful rule models in my life, my interest in the medical field is no accident. I also have two brothers in the professional fields of pharmacy and anesthesiology. My nephew, local general surgeon Jeff Moore, is the fourth generation of the family to enter the medical field. I have two grown daughters who along with my wife, make me laugh.
