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 industry is already dirty, regardless of country. There is so much BS with marketing and all the clinics are scared to death of … read more
For years people have talked about who is considered to be the best hair transplant doctor in the country, or the world and there are always a few names that are always mentioned. Dr. Ron Shapiro, a Minnesota hair transplant doctor, is one of those names that keeps getting repeated year after year. I've known Dr. Shapiro off and on for many years with the occasional face to face encounters or phone call to talk about various issues of mutual interest or at conferences but one thing that I've never … read more
July of last year found me traveling back home to the Southeast. I had already been in contact with North Carolina hair transplant doctor Dr. Jerry Cooley about a number of issues but my journey back to the region presented a convenient last minute opportunity for me to drop in and spend a day with him and his team.

February was a great month for project repair as our first patient finally received his treatment. I first announced Project Repair back in October, 2015 and it was immediately received with accolades and praise, mainly because of the doctors that are participating are such high caliber and have selflessly taken this project seriously. Hair transplant repair patients now have a option if they cannot afford proper hair transplant repair work on their own.
The idea of hair transplant video results is almost mundane now but this was not always the case. Through my career in the hair transplant industry I have been responsible for changing the way that hair transplant clinics document their results. I was the first person to champion the elimination of flash photography because of how it gives an unrealistically dense and natural result in pictures. My reasoning was that the result looks better in photos than in reality and patients don't normally walk around with flash bulbs exploding around … read more
