About Me

Experienced Orthopedic Care Close to Home

If you or a loved one needs expert orthopedic care or surgery, look to Patrick Moriarty, MD, a board-certified orthopedic surgeon at Avera Orthopedics in Brookings, SD.

Dr. Moriarty is excited to offer orthopedic experience in his hometown of Brookings. In addition to providing general orthopedic care, he specializes in:

  • Arthroscopy for shoulders, knees and elbows
  • Fracture repair and care
  • Hand surgery
  • Joint replacement for shoulders, hips and knees
  • Sports medicine

“I love my work because it allows me to perform procedures that have a defined goal,” he says. “Patients come to me with something that is worn out, painful, broken or injured and I can help return them to comfort and function.”

Active Lifestyle

Dr. Moriarty encourages an active lifestyle – whatever that looks like for each individual. “Maintaining a healthy lifestyle doesn’t have to include sports or high-impact exercise,” he says. “It can be as simple as walking, staying on your feet as much as you can and eating healthy.”

In his free time, Dr. Moriarty enjoys spending time with his family and his pets, including horses and dogs, gardening, camping and traveling. He also helps maintain a small-scale farm with crops and beef cattle.
