Honored as a “Top Doctor in Neurosurgery” every year since 1999, Dr. Matthew R. Moore is a leading neurosurgical specialist in South Florida for complex neck, low back, and brain problems which may ultimately require surgery.
An honors graduate of Harvard College, Dr. Moore then earned his Doctor of Medicine from Yale School of Medicine, where he received an honor and award for his thesis on neuroregeneration. Following Yale, he completed his training through Harvard Medical School’s neurosurgery residency program at Brigham and Women’s Hospital in Boston, where he served as chief resident and the Harvey Cushing Fellow.
Dr. Moore has expertise in a wide variety of both benign and malignant brain and spine tumors. He also commonly performs the latest microscopic surgeries for neck and lower back pain caused by herniated discs and arthritis. He was the first CyberKnife-trained neurosurgeon in Broward County and frequently can offer this cutting-edge treatment, as well as the use of laser surgery, over traditional operations. Using these techniques, Dr. Moore has found that most neck and back surgery patients are up and walking the same day without pain.
Dr. Moore was also the founding director of the first Joint Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Organizationsapproved spine care center in South Florida. For more than 10 years, Dr. Moore’s surgical group, Neurological Surgery Associates, served as the “team physician” for the Miami Dolphins and the local NHL Players’ Association.
In addition to his clinical surgical practice, Dr. Moore frequently provides expert witness consultation, testimony, and independent medical examinations for accident and malpractice cases throughout the United States through his consultation company, Florida Neurosurgical Experts.
Most importantly, as a highly skilled board-certified neurosurgeon, Dr. Moore carefully evaluates treatment options for each patient and strives to choose the most appropriate plan for each individual guided by question this in mind, “What would I do if this patient was my family member, my mother, father, or child?”
