More than 6,000 Lives Transformed – Kim Bariatric Institute Celebrates its 10 Year Anniversary
Patients are the cornerstone at Kim Bariatric Institute. Led by Dr. David Kim and now a decade into practice, the bariatric surgery center first began helping patients with their weight loss goals in 2003, and established the provision of compassionate treatment and comprehensive care as its guiding principles. Those principles, as well as witnessing and sharing patients’ success stories, have been at the heart of Kim Bariatric Institute ever since.
Obesity in the U.S. continues to grow at an alarming rate, with more than one-third of the adults identified as obese. According to Dr. Kim’s interview with Good Morning Texas, more than 30 percent of Texans qualify for bariatric surgery. “The American Medical Association recently ruled to classify obesity as a disease,” says Dr. Kim. “I am hoping that classifying obesity as a disease will open access to care so overweight patients can receive the surgical care that they deserve.”
Kim Bariatric Institute aims to provide obese individuals with healthier lives by offering a variety of bariatric surgery procedures. When patients experience the success of achieving longer, more fulfilling lives, that success is also felt personally by Dr. Kim and his staff. “This milestone represents victory, not only for my practice but also for the 6,000 lives we helped by combatting the disease of morbid obesity,” says Dr. Kim. “We celebrate our 10 year anniversary because we are here for our patients. We exist because of them.”
