In an industry with relatively few women, Dr. Arika Bansal has risen to the top of the industry as one of the premiere hair restoration physicians in the world. I'm very pleased to have such an inclusive and encompassing roster of hair transplant doctors as part of Hair Transplant Mentor™ and Dr. Bansal has easily earned her position on this website. I first learned of Dr. Bansal in mid 2019 when her partner had applied for Hair Transplant Mentor™ membership. During my research phase into the clinic I was beyond impressed with Dr. Bansal's academic accomplishments. In three years of medical school she published TWELVE papers on both the national and international levels while attending All India Institute of Medical Sciences. Dr. Bansal was also a Gold Medalist at Lady Harding Medical College, which is ranked in the top ten of all medical colleges in India, of which there are 542.
When patients are doing their research they are easily impressed by, seemingly average, academic credentials. I am not and while Dr. Bansal's academic ambitions are no doubt impressive, I know that what really matters is the practical side of hair restoration. The surgical and non-surgical outcomes, as well as how physicians conduct themselves with regards to patient care, are most important. However, I have seen in Dr. Bansal a unique combination of academic excellence as well as high surgical skill and I think this has to do with her very genuine and keen interest in the science that goes on behind the art of hair restoration surgery.
Dr. Bansal is one of the more active doctors online with regard to knowledge sharing. She has several videos posted on Youtube where she's explaining some of the fine minutia of hair restoration that most doctors do not spend time discussing with patients. In fact, most doctors in hair restoration today do not understand even the most basic and fundamental elements of better hair restoration surgery. This has a lot to do with the relative ease which one can enter the field compared to the earlier days of the industry where actual surgical skill, not to mention higher financial investment, were required. Being trained and experienced with how real hair restoration should be performed, I feel confident in Dr. Bansal and I recognize that in a time when the standards were higher, she would have been just as much of a stellar stand out as she is today.
As I have gotten to know Dr. Bansal, I've gained a deeper understanding of her passion for her field. She told me in a recent discussion that she is "always learning". When you perform at such a high level as Dr. Bansal, to have the humility to know that you do not know everything, it means that improvement is welcomed and not looked at as an admission of inferiority. I'm proud to have Dr. Arika Bansal as part of the Hair Transplant Mentor™ list of accepted doctors. You can learn more about her at www.Eugenix.in.
