Joseph K. Barnes, M.D. (July 21, 1817 – April 5, 1883) was an American physician and the 12th Surgeon General of the United States Army (1864–82).

Born in Pennsylvania to a prosperous Federal judge, Barnes studied medicine at Harvard University, but left before finishing his studies due to ill health. He later studied medicine with Surgeon General Thomas Harris of the United States Navy, and received his medical degree from the University of Pennsylvania in 1838.

After the shelling of Fort Sumter, he was ordered east and served successively as medical director of the forces under Major General David Hunter, medical director of the Western Department, and medical director of the Department of Kansas. May 2, 1862, he report ed to the Surgeon General in Washington and was assigned to duty as attending surgeon for the city.

The difficulties between Stanton and Surgeon General William Alexander Hammond culminated in the detachment of the latter from his office. On September 3, 1863, Barnes was by a special order of the War Department "empowered to take charge of the bureau of the Medical Department of the army and to perform the duties of Surgeon General during the absence of that officer."

On August 22, 1864, he was advanced to the position of Surgeon General, with the grade of Brigadier General.
