“I have a history of arthritis in my low back, shoulder, and wrist, so when my knees started hurting I was concerned it was also degenerative arthritis. Working 12-hour shifts in the St. Charles Transfer Center, I have to sit for long periods of time and when I would stand, my knee pain got so bad that I felt like my legs wouldn’t hold me up any longer. When I couldn’t walk short distances or use the stairs anymore, I made an appointment with Dr. Moore. He confirmed that my x-rays showed osteoarthritis in both knees and they would need to be replaced. He thought the best outcome would be with the robotic arm assisted surgery. I was not familiar with the procedure, but I have a lot of trust in him, both from working with him and as a patient, so I felt confident in my decision. Recovering from my first surgery four months ago was a breeze. I was walking fluidly within a few days and off pain medication within four days. I felt so good, I completely forgot to use my walker in my house a few times! The second surgery was a week ago and the recovery has been a little slower, but I know I will get there. I’m most looking forward to being able to go outside and walk my dogs, but just getting up and being able to walk pain-free will be wonderful.” – Roseanne Hammer 

“Eleven years ago I was in a bad mule wreck out by Steens Mountain. It took all day to get to a hospital. Dr. Moore was on vacation and came to the St Charles Medical Center at 0300 to put my femur back together with a rod and a bolt through my hip. It was a long road to recovery but I am still backpacking at age 68. Without Dr. Moore, I could be in a wheelchair. I am a forester, and thank God every time I walk in the Big Mountains. I have thought about Dr. Moore nearly every day since my wreck. Thanks to a dedicated professional and a great human being.” – Scott Imus 

“Dr. Moore did a wonderful job on my ankle replacement. I never had even one moment of pain during the entire surgery and recovery period, and my ankle is like new! The results are just amazing…he gave me my life back!”  – Jerrie W. Anderson

“I appreciate the availability of seeing Dr. Moore in Prineville at St. Charles Medical. I was very pleased with being seen so quickly and being treated with great service.”

“Having my knees replaced has been completely life-changing for me. I waited 12 years after two orthopedic surgeons told me that I needed to have my right knee replaced, until I found Dr. Moore. It had gotten so bad, I avoided going to the grocery store because it was so uncomfortable walking up and down the aisles. When I met Dr. Moore, he told me the same thing as the other surgeons, but he gave me choices. He never pressured me into surgery and he really listened to me. Two years ago, he replaced my right knee and I was amazed at the difference. My recovery was remarkable, I went back to work in three weeks and within four weeks I was able to return to all of my normal activities. My left knee started to deteriorate after that, so one year ago I had my left knee replaced. In March, I hiked to the top of Smith Rock. I never would have dreamed I could do that before. The only part of my body that didn’t ache was my knees!” – Pam Erickson
