Dr. Kramer also serves as the bariatric program medical director for the hospital’s Comprehensive Weight Management Center. He is recognized by MBSAQIP as a Verified Surgeon, was a founding member of the Virginia Bariatric Society and is a member of the Tennessee Bariatric Society. He received his medical degree from New York College of Osteopathic Medicine in 1987 and completed his residency at Kennedy Memorial Hospital in Stratford, N.J. Board certified by the American Osteopathic Board of Surgery in General Surgery, a Fellow in the American College of Osteopathic Surgeons, and a Fellow of the American Society for Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery, Dr. Kramer is a physician at Surgical Associates of Kingsport.
