His Approach


It is sometimes assumed that the medical specialty of Surgery of the Hand involves just the surgical management of the various problems relating to the hands, wrists and upper limbs.  Indeed, many people believe that surgeons only operate, and that their treatment recommendations will almost always emphasize the need for surgery. Dr. Steven Moore understands that many musculoskeletal conditions can be treated by non-surgical methods, and that surgery is just one of several possible methods for treating many troubling orthopedic conditions. That’s why every patient’s visit with Dr. Moore begins with a comprehensive evaluation of that particular injury or affliction to the upper extremity.


Dr. Moore begins by listening – to you, your condition, and how it affects you. His goal – and yours – is to find the best possible way to return you to a comfortable, active, fully functioning and pain-free life.


Through a dialogue between you and Dr. Moore, you will come to  understand the diagnostic process, your own physical problem, your unique and specialized treatment choices (non-surgical as well as surgical, if appropriate), their risks, the benefits, and the associated recovery process, including any rehabilitation therapy you may require for a successful outcome. With an open and honest discussion, the two of you will arrive at the best treatment decisions for your particular ailment.
