• Sarasota Orthopedic Associates Surgeon Returns From Humanitarian Mission


    Humanitarian Medical Team Performs Life Altering Pediatric Scoliosis Surgeries

    Dr Andrew Moulton, Board Certified/Fellowship Trained spine surgeon at Sarasota Orthopedic Associates, recently returned from a week long mission to perform life-altering spinal surgeries on children in the Dominican Republic. Dr Moulton, Co-founder and President of the Butterfly Foundation, travels several times each year with his team of surgeons and staff to perform spinal surgeries and instruct spine surgeons in developing countries.


    Dr. Moulton is fluent in Spanish, Portuguese, and Japanese, and French, allowing him to communicate directly with the children and their families on his missions. The host surgeons in these countries acquire new skills and supplies from Dr Moulton and the foundation giving them new resources to treat children in need. This fulfills Dr Moulton’s philosophy, “Teach a man to fish and he feeds his community for a lifetime”.

    Sarasota Orthopedic Associates is proud to have the skills and compassion of Dr Andrew Moulton on our team of physicians. He treats adults and children in our three locations. SOA is a full service orthopedic group with physical therapy, aquatic therapy, MRI, and X-ray capability, and offers same day appointments when needed. The commitment of Sarasota Orthopedic Associates is to get our patients back on their feet, back to work, back in the game, and back to life.
