Chan Soon-Shiong Medical Center at Windber (CSSMCW) is committed not only to helping your achieve your weight loss goals, but also to improving your overall health. Weight loss surgery has helped millions of people lose excess weight. But, did you also know that it can help to improve medical conditions including type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, sleep apnea, and gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD)?

Our nationally accredited bariatric surgery center offers a variety of weight loss surgeries using minimally invasive (laparoscopic) techniques. Laparoscopic techniques use small incisions and miniaturized instruments. The smaller incisions allow for less post-operative pain, smaller scars, shorter hospital stays, faster recovery times, and reduced risk of infection.

Our patients have their choice of Gastric Bypass, Gastric Sleeve, or Adjustable Gastric Band (LAP-BAND) procedures. We also provide revisional (second chance) surgeries and nonsurgical options. Rest assured that we will work with you to help you choose the right path for your individual needs.

Bariatric Surgeons Taesun Moon, DO, FACOS, FASMBS and Peter Bertin, DO, FACOS lead our team of experienced professionals, who are dedicated to providing the best experience possible for each of our patients. We are committed to providing you with information and guidance through education, encouragement, and support throughout your entire process – from the free informational seminar and your pre-surgery appointments, to the day of your bariatric surgery and your long-term follow-up care both in office and via an app called MiJourney.
