A lifelong Texan born in Laredo, he earned his Bachelor of Arts in Business Administration from Trinity University in San Antonio. He went on to earn his medical degree at the University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio, followed by a residency in Anesthesiology at Ochsner Clinic Foundation Hospital in New Orleans. Dr. Moore completed his fellowship training in Pain Medicine and Interventional Pain Management at Texas Tech University Health Science Center in Lubbock.
Although always interested in medicine as a career, he focused on interventional pain management because of its dynamic quality. “It’s an area of extreme innovation,” he says. “In the past, spine treatment involved non-invasive physical therapy or a large surgical intervention. There was not a place in the middle that could affect a patient’s quality of life. Now, new developments allow minimally invasive access to specific nerves, joints and discs with very small incisions and a short recovery time. They provide a dramatic change in patients’ wellbeing.”
Dr. Moore comes to PPOA from Capstone Pain and Spine Center, with three locations in the Dallas-Fort Worth area. Previously, he served as an assistant professor in the Pain Management/Anesthesiology Department at Texas Tech University Health Science Center, International Pain Institute.
He is a member of the American Society of Interventional Pain Physicians, the North American Spine Society, Texas Pain Society, Texas Medical Association, and the Tarrant County Medical Society.
Dr. Moore speaks English and Spanish. He and his wife have three children. The family enjoys the outdoors and cheering on the Dallas Cowboys, Mavericks and Rangers.
