It can be heartbreaking to watch your child slowed down by an orthopedic condition, whether it’s a broken bone, playground injury or complicated birth defect. Moore’s pediatric surgeons and therapists understand how these conditions affect growing infants, children and adolescents very differently than adults, and are dedicated wholly to treating children based on their unique needs. Our team is led by surgeons who are fellowship trained sub-specialists and are on call 24-7. Our pediatric rehab facility is the only one in Columbia that treats both children (0–8 years) and youth (9–17 years). And with equipment that is specially designed for children. With our focus on family-centered care, we’re here to help return your child, and your family, to a normal life.

News & Events
It's that time of year again! The student athletes at our network and other area schools will join us on Saturday, April 18 for our annual physical day.
Last year we saw just over 1000 kids in one day for their required pre-participation sports physicals. Each year, the Moore Center physicians, physical therapists, athletic trainers, staff and other volunteer medical professionals from the community donate their time to administer physicals at no cost to the schools.
The only fees the students are charged are set by each individual school as a fundraiser for their athletic departments.
For information on if your school participates in our physical day, please contact your school athletic trainer.
