I love teaching!
“Teaching is the greatest act of optimism.”
John Hoopman, CMLSO
Professor for ASAPS
"A few words about myself"
John began his clinical experience at The University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center at Dallas in 1998. He served as the administrator of the UT program (now some 225-laser strong) including the disciplines of medical/surgical specialties including Cardio-Thoracic, Dermatology, Plastic Surgery, Ophthalmology, Obstetrics/Gynecology, Oral Surgery, Orthopedics, Otorhinolaryngology, Urology, and Neurologic Surgery until May 2019 when he retired after 21 years of service. With little time off, John came back to UT Southwestern in the Department of Plastic Surgery to further his research in the process of light tissue interactions and continue his passion of faculty and resident education.
John is nationally recognized as a leader in patient advocacy and is an active and guiding member of organizations like the ANSI Z136.3 Review Board (the guiding force in patient safety and control nationally), the American Society for Laser Medicine and Surgery (ASLMS), American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons (ASAPS) and the Laser Institute of America (LIA). With his academic and developmental involvement in light medicine John has a unique ability to gauge and review most of the new and emerging light and noninvasive technologies being brought to bear in today’s ever changing surgical/clinical world. He has had the honor and pleasure to be involved with revolutionary new laser and light applications that significantly affected both the quality and duration of patient’s lives.
John has also been privileged in co-authoring 45+ translational cornerstone research publications. In constant demand by the medical laser industry, John has a unique ability to bring clear and understandable terms to the most complicated of light procedures and methods.
