After about 30 years as an orthopedic surgeon, Frosty Moore launched a new practice alongside sons Dustin and Grayson.

Dustin’s wife, Katrina, works as a medical assistant, her sister Misti LeBaron works the front desk, and Grayson’s wife, Paige, works behind the scenes on marketing and decorating. To add to the medical legacy within the family, a younger Moore brother is finishing up his residency in orthopedic surgery before embarking on a yearlong fellowship in total joint replacement and eventually deciding if he, too, will join the family practice.

With so much family involvement, the name Legacy Bone & Joint was a natural fit, Dustin said.

The practice began in Dripping Springs almost two years ago, and the Bee Cave location opened last summer.

West of Austin has always been home to the family, Dustin said. Frosty grew up on Westlake Drive and raised his sons in the Lake Travis-Westlake area, where they all still live with their own families.

“Central Texas is just a gorgeous area and place to live,” Dustin said. “It’s great that there are a lot of outdoor activities, and people are so active in the community.”

Dustin said the family often works together to figure out best practices and procedures for each patient.

“We have a lot of conversations about different cases,” he said. “We learn a lot from each other.”
