M. Moore, M.D. grew up in Wilmington, and graduated from New Hanover
High School, class of 1968. He attended college and medical
school at Vanderbilt University in Nashville, Tennessee. His
orthopaedic surgical training was also at Vanderbilt University Medical
Center. Dr. Moore returned to Wilmington in 1981, where
he has been in orthopaedic practice since. He became board
certified in Orthopaedic Surgery in 1984, and is a Fellow of the
American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons.
Moore believes strongly that conservative, nonsurgical
treatment is often the best approach for most orthopaedic
conditions. Whenever surgery is the better alternative, Dr.
Moore, with 25+ years of surgical training and experience, augmented by
continuing education programs, can provide this option as well.
He is a member of the senior attending staff of New Hanover
Regional Medical Center and the Cape Fear Orthopaedic
Specialty Center, where orthopaedic surgery is performed with state-of-the-art facilities and staff.
