My name is Joe Tillman and I used to post on the various online discussion boards as “Jotronic”. I am the ORIGINAL Hair Transplant Mentor™. I had two hair transplant procedures in the early 1990’s with a doctor in Knoxville, Tennessee that ended up giving me disastrous results. I lived through the nineties and early 2000’s with a pluggy hairline, two wide donor scars, and not much else and by the time I was 31 years old I was a full blown NW6.5.
Hair Transplant Mentor.com. A website born out of a passion to educate, to share and to empower hair loss sufferers. I was the first hair transplant blogger before “blogger” was even a word. I was the first to show not just the before and after of a hair transplant but also what happens in between the before and after. Before me, no one had shown what the surgery itself looks like and I was the first in the world to show a hair transplant video. If you have questions or anything you’d like for me to discuss feel free to let me know.
I eventually had two repair procedures with Dr. Jerry Wong of Hasson & Wong in Vancouver, BC Canada before I started working for Hasson & Wong in 2003. I have undergone two more hair transplant procedures and as of this writing I have had 9460 grafts transplanted from Dr. Wong. I have since moved on from Hasson & Wong and am currently an independent patient advocate.
I have a saying when it comes to hair restoration research; Think – Learn – Apply. What this means is simple.
– Think about what you are reading. Does it make sense? Is there a potential motive behind the information?
– Learn to distinguish fact from fiction. Look for consistency and verification of statements and information found online.
– Apply what you learn to your own situation and it should transform you into an informed hair restoration consumer.
