Dr. MoorevilleAs a urologist, Dr. Mooreville is highly trained to treat disorders of the male and female urinary tract (bladder, ureter, kidney, and urethra) and the male reproductive system. He is certified by the American Board of Urology and is a Fellow of the American College of Surgeons.

He is a pioneer in the development of new surgical instruments for the insertion of penile prosthesis in difficult patients with two patents to his credit. He has developed a highly appreciated penile cutting dilator used by other urologists in centers like the Cleveland Clinic, the Mayo Clinic, UCLA, and the University of San Francisco, among others.

Dr. Mooreville is a nationally recognized expert in using both the new Indigo laser technique to treat benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH, enlarged prostate) in men, and in the use of Brachytherapy for prostate cancer.
