Many hair transplant physicians claim to be true pioneers in advancing hair transplantation. But no informed person would dispute that Dr. Bill Rassman is a true pioneer in refining and widely advocating the adoption of Follicular Unit Hair Transplantation. For his significant contributions to the advancement of hair restoration surgery Dr. Rassman was awarded the highest honor in hair restoration surgery in 2004 – the “Golden Follicle Award”.
The innovations that he fought for, such as microscopically prepared follicular unit grafting, are now widely accepted and practiced. All patients who today benefit from natural follicular unit hair transplantation owe a debt of gratitude to Dr. Rassman, directly or indirectly, for fighting the good fight to make this procedure the acknowledged “Gold Standard in Hair Transplantation”.
As an elite physician member of the Coalition of Independent Hair Restoration Physicians he takes his rightful place amongst his distinguished colleagues. Dr. Rassman has also been a true pioneer in using the Internet to educate patients about cutting edge hair restoration techniques. His New Hair Institute website is an incredible resource for any person considering hair transplantation.
Today he continues to be on the cutting edge of online patient education and authors the most popular and respected hair restoration blog on the Web – the Balding Blog.com.In addition to embracing and promoting follicular unit grafting, Dr. Rassman defied the skeptics by pioneering the Megasession in 1992-4. He was the first to do 2000 grafts, 3000 grafts and 4000 grafts in single sessions. To those who over a decade ago said it couldn’t be done he replied – “Those who say it can’t be done should not stand in the way of those who are doing it every day.”
