A true pioneer, with a worldwide reputation for outstanding ultra refined follicular unit hair transplantations among both colleagues and patients.

Golden Follicle AwardDr. Shapiro is widely recognized by his colleagues as a leading practitioner and teacher of the most advanced hair restoration procedure – Ultra Refined Follicular Unit Hair Transplantation. He adopted follicular unit grafting early in the 1990s and helped popularize this advanced procedure. In recognition for his outstanding patient care and contributions to the field of hair restoration over the past decade he was awarded the "Golden Follicle Award" in 2004.

 

View highlights of our visit to Dr Shapiro's clinic.

He was the first physician honored to demonstrate follicular unit grafting live before a wide audience of colleagues at the ISHRS annual meeting in 1995. He continues to share his techniques with his medical colleagues by lecturing frequently at national and international hair restoration conferences, running workshops and performing live surgical demonstrations.

Physicians from around the world visit Dr Shapiro's Clinic, not only to observe his surgeries, but to benefit from them as patients. Many hair transplant surgeons have selected Dr. Shapiro for their own personal hair restoration surgery.

Dr. Ron Shapiro also has an outstanding reputation amongst patients who frequent online discussion forums and online hair loss communities. He is known for consistently producing exceptionally natural hairlines and for being extremely compassionate, generous, and personable.

Dr. Shapiro is the founder and medical director of The Shapiro Medical Group in Minneapolis, Minnesota. His clinic specializes in Ultra Refined Follicular Unit Transplantation and hairlines that are world renown for their naturalness. Dr. Ron Shapiro is joined at his well regarding hair restoration clinic by his brother and associate Dr. Paul Shapiro, who also performs Ultra Refined Follicular Unit Hair Transplantation surgery with excellent results.

Dr. Ron Shapiro was among the first to pass the boards in the newly created American Board of Hair Restoration. In 2000 he was also elected to the Board of Governors for the American Society of Hair Restoration Surgery (ASHRS). That same year he earned the "Archimedes" award for excellence in hair restoration from the Italian Society of Hair Restoration Surgery.

Since 1999 Dr. Ron Shapiro has served on the Board of Governors to the International Society of Hair Restoration Surgery (ISHRS). He recently completed work in writing and editing major sections of Dr. Walter Unger’s well regarded textbook – “Hair Transplantation”.

I first started to notice my hairloss at 22. At that point I was probably at 40-50% density since it was not that noticeable (only in certain light.) Rogain was available as a prescription 2.5%, being as vain as I was I jumped on it. It did a remarkable...
