Other Information


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 particular 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.
