GMRI and HVDHB to jointly host public lecture by leading plastic and craniofacial surgeon and medical humanitarian
Dr Moore is a plastic and craniofacial surgeon and medical humanitarian. He is the Head of the Australian Craniofacial Unit in Adelaide, Australia, where he has spent the last 30 years of his career after completing his plastic surgical training in New Zealand. During this time he has been actively involved in multidisciplinary clinical management, teaching and research into a wide array of major cleft and craniofacial anomalies.
He has participated in the development of craniofacial surgical services within the South East Asian region through an involvement in outreach clinics and teaching.
Over the last 18 years Dr Moore has had a major commitment to the provision and development of cleft lip and palate and reconstructive plastic surgical services in the eastern Indonesian provinces and Timor-Leste, for which he was recognised by being awarded a Member of the Order of Australia (AM) by the Australian Government, as well as the Royal Australasian College of Surgeons International Medal. In the last three years he has also contributed to similar surgical service provision in Bhutan, working with Interplast.
