Beth A. Moore, MD, FACS, FASCRS, practices at California Colorectal Surgeons in Beverly Hills, California, where she provides the full scope of colorectal care but has a special interest in laparoscopic and robotic surgery for benign and malignant diseases of the colon and rectum. In her clinical practice, she’s dedicated to optimizing each patient’s outcomes using advanced techniques to treat colon and rectal cancer, benign anorectal diseases, and fecal incontinence.
Dr. Moore earned her medical degree at Temple University School of Medicine in 1991. She went on to complete her general surgery residency at Albert Einstein Medical Center in Philadelphia, then later acquired specialty training in colon and rectal surgery at St. Louis University School of Medicine. She’s double-board certified in general surgery and colon and rectal surgery.
From 2001 to 2005, Dr. Moore was the chief of the Division of Colon and Rectal Surgery at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles. She founded the Colorectal Cancer Center at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, where she served as director for 10 years. She has also been the president of the Southern California Society of Colon and Rectal Surgery.
“I was inspired by watching Alan Alda on ‘MASH,’” says Dr. Moore. “He was hard-working and caring, and I wanted to be a surgeon just like him.”
When she’s not treating patients, Dr. Moore loves to teach and travel with her two children. Her passion for helping people has taken her to Guatemala for several medical missions, where she performed surgeries on needy residents.
