Dr. Moore replaced a hip joint 10 years ago. He took as much time as I needed to go over what surgery/joint replacement entailed. My hip has had no issues. I would highly recommend Dr. Moore.

I had a partial knee replacement 18 months ago, and I am 100 times worse than before the surgery. I can no longer walk, am in a wheelchair, and Dr. Moore does not have a clue what to do about me. He doesn’t seem to care at all. Do NOT go to this doctor!

Dr. Moore and his staff have been absolutely fantastic. His P.A. and Dr. Moore himself both visited me before and after the surgery. The knee replacement has been much less painful than I expected. I've had sprained ankles that were more debilitating! I have only used Tylenol for pain control...more

I interviewed three surgeons for my hip replacement. Dr. Moore was an easy choice. He took the time to answer my questions. Three and half years later, I highly recommend Dr. Moore. If you need joint replacement you need a surgeon that specializes in joint replacement.
