The Metabolic And Bariatric Surgery and Quality Improvement Program® (MBSAQIP) is the premier program for the bariatric surgical specialty. Many of the country’s top bariatric programs – from metropolitan and rural community hospitals to academic institutions and freestanding outpatient facilities – have chosen to participate in the MBSAQIP.

What is an ASMBS-accredited center, and what does that mean to me?
In becoming an accredited by the American Society for Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery (ASMBS), Chan Soon-Shiong Medical Center at Windber (CSSMCW) held itself to the highest standards in the industry. The designation is indicative of CSSMCW’s commitment to a high level of bariatric care. Taesun Moon, D.O. performs weight loss surgical procedures at this ASMBS-accredited center.

Some insurance plans require accreditation or they will not cover the benefits for the surgery. By performing surgical procedures at an ASMBS-accredited center, patients with Medicare, Medicaid, UPMC Health Plan, and many other insurance plans can have their surgery at CSSMCW by Dr. Moon or Dr. Bertin.

Many studies have shown that surgery performed in an accredited center is safer and more effective. All accredited sites must report results to a certified data base and must maintain clinical pathways and procedure volumes that have been shown to improve results. By offering comprehensive services to all patients and tracking and analyzing data, CSSMCW’s program promotes safety and provides patients with support to enhance success.
