North Carolina hair transplant candidates have a lot of options to consider. A simple search online will reveal many clinics in North Carolina and many more that are not even near North Carolina due to Google advertising. Fact is, there are very few options to take seriously for a North Carolina hair transplant.
With regards to hair loss in general Dr. Cooley has always been at the cutting edge of hair loss treatment research including the use of ACELL, auto derived therapy as well as hair cloning. While I was the one of the first to really talk about Acell in particular (as a non-doctor) and it’s potential for hair transplant surgery I gave up on it’s potential long ago. However, after having conversations with Dr. Cooley about his use of Acell and auto derived therapy and having seen many of his results using these treatments I have decided that there is a lot of visual evidence to support the idea of their respective efficacies. When someone makes a believer out of me, especially after I’ve already lost faith, I get impressed and that is exactly what Dr. Cooley has done.
The second time I was fortunate to meet Dr. Cooley was in 2013 at the ISHRS meeting in San Francisco. I shared my impressions of the ISHRS Conference on my blog and I mentioned seeing Dr. Cooley again. When I was reviewing the hair transplant results shared by the other doctors during the live patient viewing it was Dr. Cooley’s excellent North Carolina hair transplant result that was the standout among all of the other results presented. He presented a North Carolina hair transplant that consisted of 3100 grafts placed in the crown with an extremely natural looking whorl pattern recreated perfectly. While this is not supposed to be a competition and is only meant to highlight the different techniques by the various respective doctors it is still a place where hair transplant results are silently judged. I never forgot that result or the pleasant chat we had.
Dr. Cooley has impressive credentials. Dr. Cooley is one of the earliest members of the International Alliance of Hair Restoration Surgeons (IAHRS) and the first North Carolina hair transplant doctor on thes list. He is also the first North Carolina hair transplant doctor recommended by the American Hair Loss Association. Dr. Cooley is a board certified dermatologist and a diplomat of the American Board of Hair Restoration Surgery (ABHRS). When it comes to his involvement in the International Society of Hair Restoration Surgeons (ISHRS) few have matched his experience. He not only served at the Vice President of the ISHRS but he was also President of the ISHRS in 2011. He won the ISHRS Platinum Follicle Award in 2008 for his outstanding and numberous scientific contributions to the fields of hair loss and surgical hair restoration. He has lectured frequently at various hair restoration and hair loss conferences throughout the world and has authored many articles and textbook chapters. Dr. Cooley also served as the United States scientific consultant for UK based Intercytex LTD while they were attempting to develop a hair cloning technique for the treatment of hair loss in men and women.
