#MoraMD: I survived getting hit by a bus. I have had many complex knee surgeries. I understand the pain my patients feel.
My specialization: Sports Trauma, Arthroscopy of the Knee, Shoulder, Elbow, Mixed Martial Arts and First Responder injuries. I emphasize accurate diagnosis and when possible non surgical treatment with Platelet Rich Plasma, Stem Cells and other Cell Based Therapies.
I firmly believe that successful medical treatment and prevention comes down to an essential element- making the correct diagnosis and providing efficient and effective treatment. I enjoy making an accurate diagnosis just as much as I do treating it.
I take pride in being able to treat most problems without surgery. Sometimes this involves a multifaceted approach involving excellent ancillary services such as physical therapists, medical consultants, chiropractors, imaging centers, occupational therapists, and neurologists. I also have a strong interest in regenerative medicine such as Platelet Rich Plasma, mesenchymal stem cell treatment, Lipogems, exosomes and other cell based therapies. I’m very interested in non surgical treatment of arthritis mainly because I suffer from advanced arthritis and I personally prefer to not have surgery.
