Moul joins team at Lakeway Regional Hospital
Lakeway Regional Hospital has recently recruited orthopaedic specialist and surgeon Rebecca Moul, D.O. to the Lakeway Area.
Moul specializes in the medical and surgical treatment of a variety of general orthopaedic and sports medicine-related problems, ranging from injuries of the knee, shoulder, elbow, wrist and ankle, to arthritis, fractures, and common hand and wrist problems. Most common in sports medicine, however, are ligament and/or tendon tears.
“Orthopaedics was an easy choice for me, as I was an athlete myself and continue to be a huge sports fan,” Moul said. “I derive a great sense of personal satisfaction from helping patients improve their lives and rebound from a variety of musculoskeletal issues. I like to think of all of my patients as athletes –— “athletes” who are trying to get back into their game at full capacity. Essentially, I enjoy helping people get back into the game of life.”
In addition to performing minimally invasive shoulder arthroscopy, one of Moul’s specific specialties is the anatomic ACL Reconstruction. The ACL is one of the major ligaments in the knee that connects the thigh bone to the shin bone.
“By performing an anatomic reconstruction of this ligament, one is restoring the ACL back to its native footprint on the femur, therefore restoring its natural anatomy and function, like the one you are born with,” she said.
Moul said she believes in treating the whole person, not just the injured area.
“I begin with a conservative approach to meeting my patient’s goals, so that surgery is avoided whenever possible,” she said.
Moul comes to Morristown from Florence, Ala., where she practiced as an orthopaedic surgeon. She attended college at St. Bonaventure University, where she was a four-year Division I scholarship varsity tennis player. She graduated Cum Laude and later received her medical degree from the Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine in Philadelphia. Moul went on to complete her internship and residency at Memorial Hospital in York, Pa. She then spent an additional year in training at New Mexico Orthopaedic Associates in Albuquerque, N.M. during her fellowship to specialize in arthroscopy and sports medicine.
Moving to Morristown was an easy choice for Moul and her family. They are attracted to the small town atmosphere the Lakeway Area offers, in addition to the beauty of the Great Smoky Mountains.
“As a mother of three young children, I knew Morristown would be a great place to raise a family. I am really excited to be here and look forward to becoming a part of the community,” she said. Moul and her husband have 3-year-old twins, Preston and Lyla, as well as a 1-year-old son, Ryder. Her husband of five years, Kirby, is a stay-at-home dad, as well as an avid bass fisherman.
Moul is an independent practitioner. She will be practicing at East Tennessee Spine and Orthopaedic Specialists located in Fountain Plaza. She is now accepting new patients.

Moul is also an independent member of the medical staff at Lakeway Regional Hospital.
