Dr. Jerry Wong
Dr. Wong is my doctor and he did an absolutely outstanding job for me and my hair restoration journey, as you can see from the forty pages of hair transplant progress photos I've posted. Dr. Wong is a humble, quiet man that simply loves to put his head down and get to work.
Hair Transplant Patient Safety and High Medical Ethics
Dr. Jerry Wong grew up and went to school in Canada and eventually graduated from the University of Alberta in 1973. He first specialized in emergency and general medicine. Dr. Wong has gained an impeccable reputation worldwide with both patients and peers. He has attended every annual conference of the International Society of Hair Restoration Surgeons with the exception of one, in 2013. In 2011 Dr. Jerry Wong received the ISHRS Golden Follicle Award. Dr. Wong has nearly twenty years of surgical experience in the hair restoration field. He is a diplomat of the American Board of Hair Restoration Surgery, is still an active member of the ISHRS and he is also a member of the International Alliance of Hair Restoration Surgeons and the American Hair Loss Association.
Dr. Wong performs hair restoration in Vancouver, British Columbia in a modern facility designed for hair restoration only. Dr. Wong is the original inventor of the Lateral Slit Technique which is recognized as one of the most unique and important developments in the hair transplant industry in the past twenty years. The Lateral Slit Technique is currently being used by many of the top hair restoration clinics in the world.
Dr. Wong is one of the early pioneers in performing hair transplant megasessions. These are hair transplant procedures which can harvest over 3500 grafts in a single procedure while not causing any additional problems for the patient. This allows for more coverage in one procedure along with more density and less time to final results if multiple sessions are necessary. Dr. Wong performed the first hair transplant megasession that smashed through the 5000 graft ceiling with an exact graft count of 5825 intact follicular units.
Dr. Wong has performed nearly 8000 hair transplant surgeries in his career. He still enjoys creating new works of art with individually styled hairlines, the classic "crown whorl" " ( which has become his signature surgery known as the "Wong Whorl" ) and giving patients the biggest cosmetic improvement possible.
Currently Dr. Wong performs FUSS hair transplant surgery as well as technician based Follicular Unit Extraction hair transplant surgery via a combination of the WAW motorized punch system along with various manual punches depending on the patient's specific needs. While I would expect nothing less than excellence from Dr. Wong's FUE approach I am not in a position to comment about the quality of FUE from Dr. Wong and his technicians or the Hasson & Wong clinic in general since they started offering FUE after I resigned my position in July 2014. Therefore, my recommendation for Dr. Wong only applies to his FUSS procedure at this time.
Dr. Wong does not contribute financially to this website in any way.
