Jack Moriarity, MD
Dr. Moriarity became interested in neurosurgery at an early age through exposure he had to family friends who were neurosurgeons. Over his early education, he developed a growing interest in neuroanatomy and the function of the brain and spinal cord. His interest in neurosurgery fully blossomed during his time in medical school where he developed a keen interest in neurosurgical anatomy. In particular, he recalls his first case as a medical student - a temporal lobectomy - and after seeing the human brain exposed in the operating room, Dr. Moriarity was certain that he needed to pursue a career in neurosurgery.
Dr. Moriarity’s practice currently focuses on surgical problems of the spine including herniated cervical discs and herniated lumbar discs as well as problems requiring fusion of the lumbar spine such as spondylolisthesis and multilevel stenosis. The majority of his lumbar spine procedures are done using minimally invasive techniques to help reduce pain after surgery and to speed recovery.
Dr. Moriarity grew up in Los Angeles, California as the youngest of six children. He attended college and medical school at Stanford University in Northern California. Following medical school, he trained in Neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins. He has lived and practiced in Jackson, Mississippi with his wife and three children since 2002.
