It was several months ago that we started talking with Dr. Andy Moore, II, about featuring his family’s practice, Plastic Surgeons of Lexington, in the Aesthetic Medicine issue of M.D. Update which you now have in your hands. We talked about the focus of the family-owned & operated private practice, the unique relationship of three brothers following in their father’s footsteps and the newest addition to the practice, son-in-law, Dr. Joe Hill.
I had first met Dr. Moore four years ago when I wrote an article for our magazine about “Surgery on Sunday,” the volunteer organization he founded in Lexington, KY that provides plastic surgery services for patients who do not qualify for government assistance and do not have health insurance, but need plastic surgical repair.
On August 18, 2013 “Surgery on Sunday” began operating at Jewish Hospital in Louisville, spearheaded by Dr. Erica Sutton with help from Dr. Whitney Jones, Dr. Russell Williams, and many others. I feel it’s a joyful coincidence that we can bring you the Plastic Surgeons of Lexington story at the same time “Surgery on Sunday” is extending its good work to the largest healthcare market in Kentucky.
There is good news about healthcare in Kentucky, you just have to look for it.
There was great news recently for Kentucky with the announcement of National Cancer Institute designation for the UK Markey Cancer Center, a potentially monumental step forward in patient care and research funding. M.D. Update will be bringing you a conversation with some of the physicians at Markey Cancer Center in our next issue, focused on Oncology.
Please review the M.D. Update “Editorial Opportunities” on page 21. I invite you to contact us if your specialty is coming up later this year. I look forward to hearing from you and telling your story.
All the Best, Gil Dunn Publisher, M.D.
