Surgical Director Message

Joseph A. Kuhn, MDThe Medical City Dallas Center of Excellence is an outstanding program that emphasizes compassion, education, support, technical innovation, research, leadership, and historical excellence.

Compassion is delivered through the individual commitments of a bariatric-dedicated nursing floor and operative team, as well as the pre and post-operative care from the bariatric clinical coordinator, Heather Hunt, RN.

Education and support are manifested in the wonderful support meetings, newsletters, symposia, and Walk from Obesity programs.

Medical City conducts numerous ongoing research studies involving innovative bariatric techniques and surgical outcomes.

The Medical City surgeons represent key leadership positions in state Bariatric and General Surgery Societies.  The 30 years of Bariatric surgery experience under Dr Barzune puts Medical City Bariatric Program in a unique position of historical excellence.

The inclusion of a fully integrated adolescent program will add to the regional and national reputation of this program.
