FUE Hair Transplant Surgery – Shapiro Medical #5!

FUE hair transplant surgery is getting more and more popular and in this video I shot at Shapiro Medical in Minneapolis, Minnesota you finally get to see how Shapiro Medical performs FUE hair transplant surgery. I originally shot this video in late February, 2016 and am only now uploading a final edit for your review, nearly ten months later. What is interesting to me is that when I was shooting this FUE hair transplant surgery documentary of Shapiro Medical they had been using the WAW FUE system developed by Dr. … read more

Chicago FUE Hair Transplant

Chicago FUE Hair Transplant? What does Chicago have to do with this post? Well, I've completed the edit of part 4 of the hair transplant documentary series featuring Dr. Ron Shapiro and the team at Shapiro Medical and it should benefit not just Minneapolis FUE hair transplant patients but Chicago FUE hair transplant patients as well. Why? Because Dr. Ron and the team are really close to Chicago which is where many of their patients come from.

FUE Hair Transplant in Turkey? How Safe Is It?

fue hair transplant in turkey

The tides of change are rolling in. What was once the powerhouse destination in the hair transplant world is beginning to crumble for a number of reasons. I'm talking about the country of Turkey which has been growing as the #1 destination for the explosive industry known as "medical tourism". For the past several years I've been reading about patients wishing to have an FUE hair transplant in Turkey due to the extremely low price and the supposed high quality of work that could be had. At the peak of … read more

FUE Hair Transplant Video

To see an FUE hair transplant video online is no big deal but to see Dr. Ron Shapiro in an FUE hair transplant video is quite rare. This is part three of my hair transplant documentary series featuring Hair Transplant Mentor™ partner Dr. Ron Shapiro of Shapiro Medical in Minneapolis, Minnesota. To recap part one and part two, I shared what the accommodations are like for patients that travel to have their hair transplant with Dr. Shapiro (which is most of his patient base) and how to get to the … read more

Hair Transplant Documentary – FUE Repair

fue repair

Part three of the FUE repair hair transplant documentary with Dr. Jerry Cooley of Charlotte, North Carolina is now available. To remind you, the patient in this documentary already had FUE hair restoration at another clinic in North Carolina and is having FUE repair surgery with Dr. Cooley. There is also an interesting part of the documentary where we see, for the first time, nearly 1000 grafts extracted via FUE in only thirty seconds! Ok, not really, but it sounds cool:) In reality, you see the first ever time lapse … read more

Hair Transplant Safety – A Clinical Tour @ Medikemos

Joe Tillman tours Medikemos Hair Restoration

Hair transplant safety and hair transplant care. Two of the things I look for when I travel to new clinics for review is how they treat their patients while they are having surgery and how they protect the patient from infection and general harm. Hair transplant safety is a big issue for me. I've had some people ask me behind the scenes why I keep mentioning these priorities as being so important to me and it is simple. I feel that too many clinics … read more

FUE Problems – Dr. Bhatti Discusses

fue problems

FUE and the subsequent FUE problems we face today were never foreseen by most people even a few short years ago. In 2013 my eyes were opened wide. I was in San Francisco, California attending the ISHRS conference with one of my former employers. For eleven years before this conference I had been the mouthpiece and face of the true megasession hair transplant procedure via follicular unit strip surgery. Ironically, I never had a megasession myself as the largest surgery I've ever had was 2488 grafts. For the last few … read more

Technician Hair Transplant Clinics in Turkey.

hair transplant clinics in turkey
This is not a clinic in Turkey, but rather Iran. Regardless, I find it fascinating and some clinics in Turkey are like this.

I've had a mixed feeling about Turkey since I first went to visit Istanbul in May of 2015. Before I went to Istanbul I knew absolutely nothing about the hair transplant industry in Turkey or about technician hair transplant clinics. I admit, I was very naive with how things work in Turkey but the past year has been an incredible learning period. In general the hair transplant … read more

Hair Transplant Clinics in Turkey

hair transplant clinics in turkey

I've written extensively about hair transplant clinics in Turkey since my initial visit to see Dr. Emre Karadeniz back in May, 2015 and again in June, 2015 when I returned to Istanbul for the 3rd Annual Mediterranean FUE Workshop. I still have a lot to write and a lot of video footage to edit but I wanted to share this latest video by Hair Transplant Mentor™ partner doctor, Dr. Emre Karadeniz of AEK Hair Institute.

Do Hair Transplants Work?

This is the latest episode of The Bald Truth (air date January 12, 2016) and I wanted to share it with you because it touches on an important subject. With the way that hair restoration (surgical and non-surgical) has taken off in the past few years the landscape is getting more and more competitive. With this increase in competition there seems to me to be less emphasis on education and more emphasis on marketing. There was never a danger of there being too much education but in the past it … read more
