Robert 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.
Dr. 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.
