I would recommend EmergeOrtho Wilmington for any shoulder replacement surgery by Dr.Richard Moore. He did my surgery in October 2018 and did an outstanding job! Great surgeon as well as being very personable and very thorough. He has also done several elbow surgeries on my husband that have been very successful. Thank you Dr.Moore for letting me be pain free!

Richard Moore Review


Dr. Banher, in my opinion, has got to be one of the best surgeons for shoulders and elbows .All the doctors with EmergeOrtho are top in their class. I would not go anywhere else.
