Austin Moore was a pioneer in the use of the femoral-head prosthesis and Vitallium

Dr. Moore was a cousin of mine. The family called him Tal. I was so young when he and Dr. Lunceford operated on me (I was 14) that I called him Dr. Moore.
I remember several things about him, like he apologized for not being a plastic surgeon. And that the nurses were scared of him, in case they should make a mistake. He was inolerant. And how he gave a nurse hell when he realized the “candy” he’d bit down on was actually a little ball of soap. And how he tweaked my big toe which made me hurt like hell. I loved Dr. Moore and Dr. Lunceford.
Is there a group of people online who were operated on by him?
