Peter J. Moley, MD

Dr. Peter Moley completed his undergraduate degree at Georgetown University and later attended Georgetown University Medical School. He completed his residency at Kessler Institute of Rehabilitation and followed it with a fellowship in Interventional Spine and Sports Medicine at Hospital for Special Surgery.

He specializes in the non-operative treatment of hips, low backs, and general joint injuries through the use of selective injections and advanced physical therapy programs, which he designs for his patients. He is board certified in both Physiatry and Sports Medicine.

To better direct his injections, he performs fluoroscopic-guided and ultrasound guided injections of the spine, hip, and shoulder. With the accuracy of guidance he injects steroid, PRP, and viscosupplementation in the treatment of hip, spine, and other joint disorders.
