Dr. Matthew R. Moore is a leading neurosurgical specialist in South Florida for complex neck, low back, and brain problems that may ultimately require surgery. He has been honored as a “Top Doctor in Neurosurgery” every year since 1999.
An honors graduate of Harvard College, Dr. Moore later earned his doctor of medicine from Yale School of Medicine and 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 a Harvey Cushing fellow and chief resident.
Dr. Moore has expertise in a variety of benign and malignant brain and spine tumors. He also performs the latest microscopic surgeries for neck and lower back pain caused by herniated discs and arthritis. 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 Organizations–approved 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 July, he will become director of advanced integrated neurosurgical service at Boca Raton Regional Hospital’s Marcus Neuroscience Institute.
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 U.S through his consultation company, Florida Neurosurgical Experts.
Dr. Moore carefully evaluates treatment options with his 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?”
