Hampton Roads Orthopaedic Surgeon, Blake Moore’s Research Published by National Orthopaedic Medical Magazine, Journal of Bone and Joint Surgery
Comparing Common Surgeries for Foot Pain.
VIRGINIA BEACH, Va, December 7, 2015 – The prestigious and national orthopaedic medical magazine, Journal of Bone & Joint Surgery has recently published an article authored by Virginia Beach Orthopaedic surgeon, Blake E Moore, MD. Moore, a specialist in Foot and Ankle orthopaedics, with the orthopaedic specialty group, Atlantic Orthopaedic Specialists. Moore’s article, also available on-line at the journal’s website http://jbjs.org/content/97/23/1945, details research he conducted comparing three common surgeries performed to relieve forefoot pain. Orthopaedic surgeons frequently encounter forefoot pain among patients seeking their care.
Explaining the significance of his research, Dr. Moore stated, “This study examines the effects of different commonly performed surgeries on forefoot pressures. This new research helps patients and surgeons make informed decisions about the effects of different operations for the treatment of forefoot pain.” He added that his experiment involved a sophisticated novel biomechanical model to document the changes in forefoot pressure after each of the three different surgeries performed to relieve a patient’s forefoot pain. Dr. Moore’s study also measured the impact of different Achilles tendon tension, showing how it affects several common foot and ankle pressures, pain and surgical outcomes. This groundbreaking study will help both orthopaedic surgeons and their patients decide which metatarsal surgery will work best to relieve their foot pain.
Moore conducted research for this article while completing his fellowship in Foot & Ankle Surgery at Penn State Milton S. Hershey Medical Center in Hershey, Pennsylvania. He now specializes in Foot and Ankle Surgery at Atlantic Orthopaedic Specialists, a multi specialty orthopaedic group. http://www.atlanticortho.com/.
