Dallas Weight Loss Surgeon at Kim Bariatric Institute Named as One of America's Top Doctors

Dr. David D. Kim Was Recently Recognized in Castle Connolly Medical Ltd.'s 2014 List of America's Top Doctors

DALLAS, TX--(Marketwired - Aug 11, 2015) - Dr. David D. Kim, a weight loss surgeon in Dallas and the Colleyville area, has been recognized as one of America's Top Doctors® in Castle Connolly Medical Ltd.'s annual list. The publication is one of the most prominent sources of information for consumers looking for healthcare options in their area. This is the third time Dr. Kim, the head of Kim Bariatric Institute, has been selected, having previously made the list in 2011 and 2012.

Each year, Castle Connolly Medical Ltd. conducts an extensive survey of doctors across America to come up with a list of names to include in their America's Top Doctors® publication. Doctors in a number of specialties and subspecialties are nominated by their peers and submitted to a physician-led research team for review. The nominees are screened and evaluated based on medical education, disciplinary histories, achievements, hospital appointments, training, and many other factors. Doctors cannot pay to have their names included, and they are not allowed to nominate themselves. The research team then chooses the doctors whom it believes to represent the best in their specialties, and the list is published.

Dr. Kim is well-known for his contributions to bariatric surgery. He has personally performed thousands of weight loss surgeries, and he is the creator of the David Kim Inverted Gastric Sleeve™ -- a technique designed to enhance traditional gastric sleeve surgery and provide greater benefits to patients. He says this latest recognition reinforces his commitment to being one of the best bariatric surgeons in the nation and providing patients with the tools they need to effectively fight obesity. Dr. Kim notes that his entire surgical team at Kim Bariatric Surgery focuses on giving individuals the most advanced treatment options and the support they need to lose significant amounts of weight and reduce serious risks to their health.
