Dr. Kathleen Moore earned her undergraduate degree from the University of Washington and received her MD from Oregon Health Sciences University in Portland. She completed a general surgery internship at the University of Utah and a residency with a concentration in low back, cervical spine and deformity at the Minnesota Spine Center.
Dr. Moore specializes in conditions of the spine, including scoliosis. Her specialty allows her to spend a lot of time with her patients evaluating complex back pain issues where many problems can be treated non-surgically in the office.
She is a member of the North American Spine Society and a spine instructor for the A.O. Spine organization. She volunteers time to conduct scoliosis screenings in local schools, hoping to catch many cases while they are still preventable. Dr. Moore also provides medical support for many local sporting events and competitions.
Dr. Moore is a native of Portland, Oregon, and has been in Bend since 1996. She enjoys trail running, road and mountain cycling, kayaking, stand-up paddle boarding, and all kinds of skiing, usually in the company of her husband and two children.
