Biography

I believe all patients should be treated with compassion, along with an individualized plan for their treatment and care utilizing a multidisciplinary team approach. We approach each of our patients with the philosophy of "What would you want done for your loved one?" (Quote from Cornelius "Skip" Granai, III, M.D.)

Gynecologic oncology is a unique subspecialty that provides for the participation in all parts of a patient's care. The opportunity to be involved in such a personal experience during a patient's life -- from the time of diagnosis through surgery to managing chemotherapy and participating in all aspects of a woman's care -- is an honor and privilege.

My areas of expertise include robotic surgery for ovarian, endometrial and cervical malignancies, as well as sentinel lymph node mapping for endometrial, cervical and vulvar malignancies, and ovarian cancer biomarker research for the early detection and management of ovarian cancer.

Conditions I Treat:

- Ovarian cancer
- Fallopian tube cancer
- Primary peritoneal cancer
- Endometrial cancer
- Cervical cancer
- Vaginal cancer
- Vulvar cancer

Professional Background

Richard G. Moore, M.D., FACOG, FACS, joined UR Medicine's Obstetrics and Gynecology as the Director of the Gynecologic Oncology Division on October 1, 2015. Dr. Moore will also lead Wilmot Cancer Institute's Gynecology Service Line and serve as Director of the Targeted Therapeutics Laboratory for Gynecologic Cancers.

Dr. Moore comes to UR Medicine from Brown University and Women & Infants Hospital of Rhode Island. A native of Montreal, Quebec, Canada, Dr. Moore graduated from the University of Alberta Medical School in Edmonton. He completed his residency at Eastern Virginia Graduate School of Medicine, where he also served as Administrative Chief Resident. He completed a fellowship in Gynecologic Oncology and Breast Surgery at Women & Infants Hospital/Brown University. Dr. Moore joined the faculty at Women and Infants/Brown University after leaving fellowship. He served as the Associate Director of the Program in Women's Oncology since 2009 and was the Director of the Center for Biomarkers and Emerging Technology as well as the Molecular Therapeutics laboratory.
Dr. Moore is board-certified in gynecologic oncology and is a fellow of the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists and a fellow of the American College of Surgeons.
In addition to his clinical interest in ovarian and endometrial cancers, Dr. Moore is recognized internationally as a leading expert on the use of biomarkers to detect ovarian cancer. He led the team that developed the Risk of Ovarian Malignancy Algorithm (ROMA), a test that is cleared for use in Europe and Asia and was recently cleared by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration to detect ovarian cancer in women who have an ovarian cyst or pelvic mass.
Dr. Moore will see patients at 125 Lattimore Road, Suite 258 and will perform surgeries at Highland Hospital, which has been awarded the Gold Seal of Approval by the Joint Commission and leads the state in the number of minimally invasive, robotic surgeries for gynecologic cancer performed each year.
