About The Interviews

Hair transplants and restoration is an area of medicine that is included in the primary training of two main medical specialties recognized by the ACGME. These 2 specialties are Dermatology & Plastic Surgery. Within these fields, doctors from around the world have worked on advancing our understanding of hair loss. The history of restoration is very interesting and many of the advances can be reviewed right here on our website. We are greatly appreciative of our predecessors work.

We also recognize the fact that medicine is always evolving. Research and progress continue on a daily basis. This is why our FUE hair transplant clinic has taken the time to talk to hair loss specialists from around the world. Our goal is to continue developing our understanding of male pattern baldness and the newest treatment options.

How do we define a hair loss specialist? For this page and series of questions, our focus is on those who have published in the field under peer-reviewed criteria. This is no easy feet, and thus we are adding emphasis to their work and opinions.
