Profile

Paul Shapiro M.D. performs ultra refined follicular unit hair transplantation with excellent results at the Shapiro Medical Group.

Dr. Paul Shapiro was fortunate to receive perhaps the most intensive and advanced hair transplantation training in the world under the guidance of his world renowned brother and mentor Ron Shapiro, MD.

Very few hair transplant physicians have had the opportunity to train full time over a period of years in a world renowned clinic using only the most advanced and refined techniques. Dr. Paul Shapiro began his training at the Shapiro Medical Group in early 2003 after specialized in family practice and pain management medicine for several years. Like his brother Ron, Paul developed a passion for designing and creating very natural hair transplants that are undectable even upon close examination.

Dr. Paul Shapiro’s perfectionism and commitment to performing work as refined and natural as his brother Ron has earned him the trust and respect of the entire staff. His brother Ron has expressed his belief that Paul has a natural talent for hair transplantation and has worked hard over the past few years to earn a world class standing. Dr. Paul Shapiro has also earned considerable praise from his patients.

Shapiro Medical Group has been at the forefront of FUE (follicular unit extraction) for the last 6 years.  They did not pigeon hole themselves into one technique but have evaluated them all ( Manual Technique, Motorized Technique, Sharp Punch, Dull Punch, ARTUS, etc.,) Dr. Paul Shapiro has cherry picked the best from all these sources and come up with our own unique method of using and performing FUE. By doing this Dr. Paul Shapiro feels he can get superior results.

Dr. Paul Shapiro has attended the last four annual meetings of the International Society of Hair Restoration Surgery (ISHRS) and is an active member who has published several articles on advanced hair transplantation.

He is board certified by the American Board of Family Physicians and he is a Diplomat of the American Academy of Pain Management. He recently completed his work to gain certification with the American Board of Hair Restoration Surgery.
