In 2014, Dr. Boone was appointed Vice Dean, Texas A&M University College of Medicine at the Houston campus.
Dr. Boone earned his Master of Science in physiology and Ph.D. in neuroscience at the University of Texas Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences at Houston. He completed his M.D./Ph.D. at the University of Texas Medical School at Houston and urology residency training at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical School in Dallas. In 1991 he joined the faculty in the Department of Urology at UT Southwestern for two years and then moved to Baylor College of Medicine where he joined the Scott Department of Urology. In 2000 Dr. Boone was named Professor and Chair of the Scott Department of Urology where he served until 2008. For over 20 years he has actively participated in the care of spinal cord injured veterans with neurogenic bladder dysfunction at the VA Spinal Cord Injury Unit in Dallas and in Houston.
Boone specializes in the treatment of patients with incontinence following prostatectomy, women with complex voiding disorders, and bladder problems related to neurologic disease including spinal cord injury, stroke, multiple sclerosis, and Parkinson's disease. He maintains active participation in research, focusing on mechanisms of sensory control and dysfunction in the bladder and urethra that are related to spinal cord injury, diabetes or obstruction. Dr. Boone is the primary investigator for the Neuroregeneration and Bladder Sensory Science Laboratory at the Houston Methodist Research Institute.
Throughout his career Dr. Boone has written over 100 publications and given hundreds of lectures regionally and nationally while serving as a visiting professor for many departments of urology. He is a member of the American Association of Genitourinary Surgeons, Clinical Society of GU Surgeons, American Urological Association, Texas Urological Society, Society for Neuroscience, Society for Urodynamics, Female Pelvic Medicine and Urogenital Reconstruction, and the AOA Honor Medical Society. He serves as consultant reviewer for several scientific journals including Neurourology and Urodynamics, Journal of Urology, British Journal of Urology, Urology, Spinal Cord, and the New England Journal of Medicine. He is on the editorial board of Nature Reviews in Urology. Dr. Boone was elected as a Trustee to the American Board of Urology in 2006 and served as President of the American Board of Urology from 2011 - 2012.
