There are lots of great partnerships in Charlotte but perhaps one of the best is that of the three doctors of H/K/B (Hunstad Kortesis Bharti Cosmetic Surgery). If you’ve met these guys around town you undoubtedly found yourself in good company. Dr. Joseph Hunstad, Dr. Bill Kortesis, and Dr. Gaurav Bharti are great guys, close friends and in fact, refer to each other as brothers. Turns out the brothers of H/K/B are as good together as they are good for Charlotte. These doctors have been quietly building a reputation, though Charlotte may not know it. Doctors Hunstad, Kortesis, & Bharti have developed a presence not just in Charlotte but internationally.
About the Doctors
While it’s perfectly normal for many doctors once they achieve a private practice to sit back and rest on their residual laurels; that’s not something that interests these guys. Academic furthering within a private practice is highly unusual but something they believe is necessary to stay at the forefront of their fields and give their patients the best results and recovery.

It’s intimidating to even try to list their accolades and accomplishments. The list of papers, articles, seminars, presentations, and surgical demonstrations given by Dr. Hunstad alone takes up over 30 pages, he has even written a textbook. How Hunstad came together with Kortesis and Bharti is a story of friendship and extreme professional devotion that’s too long to tell here but the short story is that these scholarly doctors are something Charlotte can be proud of.
How many of your doctors are influencers? Drs. Kortesis and Bharti, who were each in each other’s wedding started their Instagram accounts just a couple years ago to document their practice, travels and life and have now amassed a respectable following of over 30k each. Their involvement in lecturing around the world in locations like Tel-Aviv, Paris, and L.A. as well as their charitable community involvement here in Charlotte has contributed to this, not to mention the stunning before-and-after photos they each feature.
They are at the top of their fields and have been selected by the FDA to vet new devices and perform clinical trials.
There are no doctors in the region more focused on academic and procedural development in their fields as H/K/B. All 3 partners at H/K/B are educators and innovators and have been recognized by various authorities as leading doctors in cosmetic and plastic surgery in the US. They are at the top of their fields and have been selected by the FDA to vet new devices and perform clinical trials. Nearly every other week one of these doctors is teaching a seminar or learning about a new method or device.
A love of the medical profession runs through all three doctors’ personal lives as well. Dr. Hunstad’s wife, Sherry, is a nurse, Dr. Kortesis’ wife, Athena, is a nurse practitioner, and Dr. Bharti’s wife, Sarah Edwards, is an emergency and wellness physician.
