Woman’s Hospital Welcomes Dr. Cliff Moore, Gulf Coast’s only Fetal Surgery Specialist

Woman’s Hospital is pleased to announce that Dr. Cliff Moore has joined its Maternal-Fetal Medicine group, bringing the region’s only fetal surgery specialist to Baton Rouge. Dr. Moore’s extensive training in caring for women with high risk pregnancies and treating fetal conditions prior to birth brings an added layer of expertise to Woman’s and women in the Gulf Coast Region. Fetal surgery specialists are uncommon in this area, with the closest medical specialists residing in Houston and Miami.

Dr. Moore’s special interest in fetal anomalies and antenatal diagnosis and treatment of fetal disorders includes two highly complex pregnancy surgeries, utero myelomeningocele correction (Spina Bifida) and laser therapy for twin to twin transfusion syndrome. In addition to his surgical specialties, Dr. Moore also focuses on caring for mothers who have a history of cardiac disease.

Dr. Moore, a native of Elm Grove, Louisiana, completed his medical degree at LSUHSC-Shreveport, and his internship and Ob-Gyn residency at University Medical Center in Jackson, Mississippi. He then went on to complete a fellowship in Maternal-Fetal Medicine at Magee Women’s Hospital at University of Pittsburgh Medical Center. Following seven years in practice, he joins Woman’s Hospital.

Maternal-Fetal Medicine specialists work with a woman’s obstetrician to offer care for all types of pregnancy complications, ranging from premature labor and rupture of membranes to gestational diabetes maternal hypertension, multiple births and fetal anomalies.
