Bariatric Surgeon in Dallas Launches New Website, Enhances Online Patient Education

Weight Loss Surgery Patients in Dallas Now Have Access to a New Website for Dr. David Kim and His Bariatric Procedures

DALLAS, TX -- (Marketwire) -- 12/20/12 -- Dr. David Kim of the Kim Bariatric Institute for weight loss surgery in Dallas has recently announced the release of a new website dedicated to providing patients with the latest techniques and technology available at his practice. As more and more patients are turning to the Internet for their medical research, Dr. Kim says he is excited to launch a sleek new platform for improving the quality of his patient care and education. Boasting a multitude of enhanced features, he says the new website is designed to help patients find the information and services to help them make the best decision possible about their weight loss journey.

Focusing on a wide variety of procedures ranging from gastric bypass to the LAP-BAND® System, Dr. Kim says giving his patients access to accurate, reliable information is essential to ensuring their weight loss procedure is both safe and effective. Because the bariatric surgery process goes well beyond the actual operation, he says the new website offers detailed explanations of what patients can expect before the procedure and how to find the support they need in the months following. The Dallas bariatric surgeon also says redesigning the site allows him the opportunity to keep his practice up-to-date with information about the most advanced surgical techniques as well as state-of-the-art online care.

When asked why he believes having an up-to-date website is important for his practice, Dr. Kim replied: "Our patients are highly informed, internet-connected people. As medical information and technology changes, patients should be able to explore these new, exciting options for weight loss surgery."

Along with the streamlined look, Dr. Kim's new website features pages of in-depth content covering everything from LAP-BAND® expectations to revision bariatric surgery procedures. By providing detailed explanations of each treatment, Dr. Kim says he hopes to encourage his patients to engage in thoughtful research and to take an active role in their education. Also, through social media buttons and a facilitated contact page, he says he is looking forward to improving his doctor-patient communication online.

In regard to how he thinks the Internet has helped improve the quality of communication he is able to have with his patients, Dr. Kim says:

"We are heavily involved with social media like Facebook and Twitter. Our patients have tweeted that they're 'OK' to their friends and family in the recovery room minutes after their procedures. We are actively engaging in a new platform of social media presence where people can share thoughts and pictures through Instagram, Google+, Facebook, and Twitter. Our patients are also using the blog on our website and our social network as an additional layer of support after their surgery."

Developed in collaboration with Rosemont Media, a San Diego-based medical website design firm, Dr. Kim says he hopes his new site offers a starting place for patients looking to make a positive change in their life. However, he says there is no substitute for the guidance of an experienced and qualified bariatric surgeon, and any patient considering weight loss surgery should be sure to conduct the proper research in order to find the practice that best fits their needs.
