 Our Mission arrow_right

Our Mission 1C13 represents 1 Corinthians 13, a passage in the bible that specifically illustrates how anything we do is meaningful only if it is done out of love. The passage also fully describes what that love should look like. Our vow at 1C13 Medical is to care for every patient with the same manner that we would want for ourselves and those we personally love and cherish. For us, this care manifests in several ways: Our commitment to excellence, not only in the practice of medicine and surgery, but also in everything else we do - staying up to date on medical knowledge, performing our administrative duties as timely and flawlessly as possible, and attempting to implement the best practices in as efficient a manner as possible. Our commitment to dedication, which involves a good work ethic, persistence, reliability, and consistency in anything we do, both for patients and for other organizations we work with. Our commitment to compassion, in mindfulness of the suffering or disease of every patient we encounter and in remembering that all we do ultimately is for the sake of a fellow human being in need. Our commitment to integrity, in being as transparent as possible in every aspect of the care we provide for our patients.

Minimally Invasive Surgery Many abdominal surgeries can now be performed through small incisions, with a telescopic camera and long, thin instruments. 
 General Surgery Many medical problems involving the gallbladder, abdominal wall (hernias), stomach/intestine/colon, soft tissue and skin fall within the realm of general surgery. Robotic Surgery Surgical robots now allow a surgeon to perform a number of laparoscopic techniques that were previously difficult or impossible.

Slide We Provide General & Bariatric Surgery 1C13 medical provides a number of services within the realm of general surgery, minimally invasive/robotic surgery, and bariatric surgery. For more information please click on the button below. General Surgery Many medical problems involving the gallbladder, abdominal wall (hernias), stomach/intestine/colon, soft tissue and skin fall within the realm of general surgery.

Common general surgical problems include hernias, including hiatal hernias (also known as reflux surgery), surgeries on the gastrointestinal tract (i.e. esophagus, stomach, small intestine, colon), gallbladder and appendix surgery, or removal of masses or abnormal growths anywhere on the body.

If you are suffering from any of the above problems, it would be our pleasure to help you.

Dr. Moon is fellowship-trained in minimally invasive or laparoscopic surgery, where surgery is performed with a camera and long thin instruments through small incisions. 

Many abdominal surgeries can be performed in this manner, which allows for smaller incisions, decreased pain and a shorter recovery time.

Dr. Moon is also trained in robotic surgery, which allows even more surgical techniques to be performed laparoscopically.

Bariatric Surgery Bariatric, or Weight Loss Surgery, not only helps with losing weight but also in treating of medical conditions caused by obesity, or excess weight.

Surgery for weight loss and the treatment of obesity has been around since before the 1950's, however current technology and the advent of laparoscopic surgery has made bariatric surgery safer than ever for the treatment of obesity and weight related medical problems.

Additionally, our evolving understanding of how bariatric surgery works and affects the body has allowed for better approaches on how to perform surgery to allow for weight loss while minimizing potential complications and side effects as much as possible. 

Undergoing weight loss surgery is no small decision, and to be successful long-term requires a good relationship between patient, bariatric surgeon, and primary physician.

At 1C13 medical it is our goal and duty to provide our patients with close, intimate care and an ongoing relationship that helps them succeed in their journey towards losing weight and leading healthier, better lives.

Slide Dr. Cyrus Moon MD FACS general bariatric surgery Dr. Moon was born and raised in Cincinnati, Ohio. He moved to Houston, Texas for high school. He then went on to receive his Bachelors of Science degree in biomedical engineering and computer science at Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore, Maryland. Towards the end of undergraduate school Dr. Moon made the decision to pursue a career in medicine, which would allow for a career involving science as well as direct interaction and service to others. He went on to pursue his medical degree at the University of Texas Southwestern in Dallas, Texas. Dr. Moon completed his surgical residency at the University of California San Francisco, Fresno program. During residency he has found interest in the techniques of minimally invasive surgery as well as the benefits that it offered for surgical patients, in terms of faster recovery and decreased pain, discomfort and morbidity. Dr. Moon therefore went on to complete a fellowship in Minimally Invasive Surgery at UCSF Fresno, with mentors that are world renowned in the field of bariatric surgery. He has been practicing surgery in the Central Valley ever since completion of his training in 2013; first in Delano where he is still Bariatric Surgical Director, and now in Bakersfield since the fall of 2016. He is currently one of the only fellowship-trained bariatric surgeons practicing in Kern County. Make an Appointment arrow_right
