Meet The Owner and Lead Surgeon at MWSC

Dr. Timothy Janiga

Dr. Timothy Janiga

Dr. Timothy Janiga opened Mountain West Surgical Center because he wanted a surgery that put patients first. While Dr. Timothy Janiga is well-versed in all facets of plastic surgery, he’s especially passionate about cosmetic facial surgery, body contouring, and breast surgery. To honor his hard work and dedication, Dr. Janiga has been awarded with multiple “Top Doctor in Nevada” awards and Patient Satisfaction awards. Dr. Janiga takes the phrase “Whatever your hands find to do, do it with all your might” to heart. As a board-certified plastic surgeon, he brings meticulousness and confidence to everything he takes on.

With Dr. Janiga’s training at a top plastic surgery program, the University of Michigan, board certification, and specialization in cosmetic surgery of the body and face, patients can be sure they are in excellent hands. His highly-respected credentials, academic achievements, and decade of experience are used every day for his patients. Dr. Janiga’s background enables him to make the best decisions for his patients.

Dr. Janiga is emotionally invested in every patient and takes the success of each procedure personally. He routinely takes the time to listen to patients’ concerns in a kind and humble manner to ensure they are comfortable. He is drawn to the detailed nature of plastic surgery and the tremendous sense of accomplishment that comes from the immediate physical and psychological changes that take place for his patients.

Dr. Janiga has always been passionate about community service: he’s an annual sponsor of the Susan G Komen walk, and he gives back to his community through his work on the hospital tumor board and with his breast cancer reconstruction work. In his free time, Dr. Janiga enjoys mountain biking, skiing, hiking, and spending time with his family.
