DALLAS, TX--(Marketwired - Sep 1, 2015) - Dr. Manuel E. Castro, the former President and Medical Director of New Beginnings Surgical Group, is joining Kim Bariatric Institute, a comprehensive weight loss surgery practice in the Dallas-Fort Worth and Frisco area. Dr. Castro has more than 20 years of experience as a bariatric surgeon and has performed over 3500 surgical weight loss procedures. Dr. David D. Kim, the head of Kim Bariatric Institute, says Dr. Castro will make a stellar addition to his team.

Dr. Castro is experienced with a number of advanced bariatric surgery procedures, including laparoscopic gastric sleeve surgery, gastric bypass, adjustable gastric banding, and revision weight loss surgery. He has been recognized in D Magazine as one of the "Best Doctors in Dallas" for the last five consecutive years.

After earning his medical degree, Dr. Manuel Castro completed his Residency in General Surgery at St. Joseph Mercy Hospital in Pontiac, Michigan. He later completed a Fellowship in Surgical Critical Care at the University of Minnesota Hospitals and Clinics in Minneapolis.

Dr. Castro is certified by the American Board of Surgery and is a member of the American Society for Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery. He is also a Fellow of the American College of Surgeons, a Diplomate of the American Board of Surgical Critical Care, and a member of the Texas Medical Association.

As a surgeon who firmly believes that there are few treatments in the field of medicine other than weight loss surgery that can have such a dramatic effect on the health of an individual patient, Dr. Castro says he is excited to continue helping patients as a member of Kim Bariatric Institute. "I find bariatric surgery very gratifying. It leads to significant improvements in health and quality of life. I'm looking forward to working with a group of like-minded individuals. By joining Dr. Kim's team, I will be able to help a larger, more diverse group of people."
